“My son absolutely loves it in his Pre-K classroom!! He is always excites to go to school in the morning, so much so, that sometimes doesn’t want to leave upon pick-up. All the staff and teachers are so engaged in the children’s learning and development, and they’re very welcoming and truly care about the children! The building is very well taken care of and clean. I love my daily connect app that keeps me updated with all my child is doing throughout the day!! It’s hands down the best center my child has been to and I would recommend it…

“My son has been attending children’s discovery since he was 2 1/2. He started in the toddler room and has moved up through preschool and now pre-K. We have had an excellent experience with everyone from the front desk staff to teachers to kitchen staff to aids. My son has always felt comfortable in the children’s discovery environment. It has been delightful to watch him grow and develop over the years- socially, emotionally and academically. The learning that takes place in the classroom is structured yet creative. He has enjoyed enrichment programs offered as well as regular field trips. The…

I am also a former preschool teacher and professional nanny so have experienced many children in a variety of childcare situations, and currently a professor of anthropology. CDA does an outstanding job. Well trained, professional caregivers and teachers will care and challenge your child every step of the way while maintaining fun and excitement. Their commitment to always improving diversity and teaching the kids to be loving, thoughtful, respectful friends is remarkable. Lizzie…

“When I first toured both Children’s Discovery sights, I was so impressed! I loved walking in, seeing the colorful hallways, smiling children, and friendly teachers! They made us feel so welcome! Our pre-kindergartener started a few weeks ago, having never been in childcare before, and tells me everyday how much he loves school and his teachers. They always give me great updates and are so friendly with our family! I can tell these children are learning and thriving here at Children’s Discovery- Vadnais Heights! I would recommend to every family in the area! We are so pleased!” Sharina from Vadnais…

“Our oldest started daycare when he was almost two and we were all so nervous! Now he is 4 and our 1 year old has been in CDA since he was 3 months. We love everything about CDA, the updates, the energy, everything, but most of all the teachers! Our two have been in every room besides the kindergarten and they absolutely love it. They have learned so much!! & they are always excited to be in class. The teachers are always great about communicating and keeping us involved. I also love how small & intimate it is, everyone knows…

“My daughter Ava is currently in the pre kindergarten room. She loves going to daycare everyday! E very morning she is greeted by her teachers which are Darci and Amy. When I pick her up all the staff in the after noon are amazing. I know that she has fun there and learns because she comes home and tells me all about her day. The curriculum is also so wonderful and I can see that she is learning so much. Childrens discovery is a great place to send your kids.” Loretta from Oakdale Parent of Ava, Pre-Kindergarten

“CDA is so convienient and provides such great care for our children. Friends and family are so impressed by my description of the curriculum and offerings, our friends are often jealous they don’t live closer. Pre-K is such a fun learning environment. I know my children will be ready for Kindergarten. The Before and After care and summer program are so well planned. I know homework will get done, reading will happen and in the summer, my child won’t fall behind, but will excel and be ready for next year. My daughter loves the summer program so much she can’t…

“Our daughter has been at Children’s Discovery since 3 months of age. The care that she has received at Children’s Discovery is astounding! The teachers truly care about her well being and development. The activities that they do with the children is done in a safe manner. The staff think outside of the box and find ways to challenge our daughter. I value the exceptional care that they have provided for our child for over 4 years!

“My first impression of Children’s Discovery was great. The staff there are so amazing it’s a warm and inviting environment. My daughter attends the Pre-k program at the Vadnais Heights location. She loves it there everyday she is eager to go to school. She has also learned so much from there she has come a long way and I have the wonderful teachers in that room to thank. Everyday when I pick her up she has so much to tell me about her day and what she and her friends did. I’m glad I chose to bring her to Children’s…

“We started the pre kindergarten program after moving and Children’s Discovery made the transition easy. Everyone is friendly and I love the letters of the week and the curriculum! Our son loves going to “school” and it is a great way to get him into a school environment! We are so happy!” Dana from Lino Lakes Parent of Logan, Pre-Kindergarten Program

“We moved to the area 3 years ago and were commuting downtown with our daughter. 1.5 years ago, we started looking around for closer care for our 3-year old. The tour at Children’s Discovery was amazing. Everyone was so warm and engaged. At other centers, I often feel the caregivers don’t have their hearts in it; as if it’s just a temporary job and they may happen to like kids. At CDA, many (most) of the teachers have years and years of experience; the turnover is very low. My son will have the same teachers as my daughter who is…

“Children’s Discovery of Vadnais Heights has been a HUGE part of our life since my daughter has been about 2 years old, who is now 4 years old and soon transferring to Children’s Discovery Little Canada for before and after school care for Kindergarten very soon!

“Having my son come to Children’s Discovery has helped me be at ease with him being prepared for school, especially Kindergarten. He loves going and makes new friends. I am very impressed with how they are able to just teach and have him interact. He’s learned to write his name and count and say his ABCs so very confidently. I would recommend Children’s Discovery to parents who are not just looking for a place to have their kids being watched but they will also provide great educational skills that will help them develop and grow.” Pa from Vadnais Heights Mother…

“From the first moment I called I knew that Children’s Discovery Academy was the right fit for our family and for Emerson. We have two sons and between them have experienced five providers – CDA is by far the best. The staff are the happiest people we’ve met, are dedicated to his learning experience and provide a structured, yet flexible and kid focused environment. The administration takes good care of their employees – which shows. The communication between parents and providers is unparalleled – between the daily pictures and updates, the same day responses to questions and concerns and the…

“Our 4 year old son has been enrolled at CDA from the time he was 4 months old. He loves coming to “school” to play with his friends and learn new things. As he has progressed through the levels we have been amazed by how well he is cared for.

“Tyler has been going to CDA for three years. Ever since he has started we have been recognizing things that he is learning (that we hadn’t taught him) and love it. He will come home singing a new song, or surprise us with things he has learned in his classroom. I love the structure that CDA has and the classroom/learning feel that they provide to children before they enter the real school world. I really think it helps prepare our children for the future. CDA staff has always been such a delight to work with. They love and treat your…

“Having our kids attend Children’s Discovery has been one of the best investments we’ve made as parents. We have three children, with our oldest now 9 years old. She started going to Children’s when she was 3, and our son started when he was 1. They both progressed through the rooms and ultimately attended kindergarten at Children’s. Our youngest is nearly 5 and in the PreK class. She has been at Children’s since she was an infant. The level of teaching and the caring of the staff is exceptional. The curriculum is wonderful, and I have had no concerns about…

She is not yet 4 years old but already able to read numbers and most of the letters. We are happy to see her excel in learning. In addition, the Daily Connect app and Daily Progress e-mails are very helpful to know that she is doing fine in eating and napping in school. Thank you to Casi and her team for such a great job.” Trang of Little…
