“Our daughter absolutely loves going to school every day. She had learned so much at Childrens Discovery from writing her name, to counting objects, building strong social skills, and strong independence. Childrens Discovery has wonderful teachers that go above and beyond for the kids. We also love that there are enrichment experiences offered at school such as dance, music, soccer, and the Tumble Fun Bus. It makes it easy for our kids to try new things but because it’s at school it frees up more time at home with our family.” Katie from Vadnais Heights Mother of Lydia, Preschool

“We love CDA! Our girls always look forward to going to school where they get to see their friends and teachers, work on their projects, and earn things from the “treasure box.” The teachers are fantastic and work really hard to keep the students engaged, and make learning fun. The campus is very nice and our girls ALWAYS get tired FROM and not of playing in the gym or the expansive play area outside. I am always confident that CDA is taking every measure to keeping our little ones safe, whether it be the check-in/out system or the state of…

“We selected CDA after touring a couple other daycare centers. We liked that CDA was a locally-owned center and the lengthy tenures of the administrators and teachers told us that the staff enjoyed their work and were committed to the organization. Less than a month after our son started at CDA he was diagnosed with hip dysplasia which required special care and accommodations. Kristi and the other teachers in the infant classroom didn’t skip a beat. They adapted to our son’s needs and it made the challenge we were facing so much easier. We can’t thank them enough for everything…

“We love this center! The teachers are warm and caring, the facility is bright and clean, and the curriculum is fun and engaging.

“My son likes school so much, he assigns himself homework. He studies his numbers and letters at home without being asked.” Tammy from White Bear Lake Mother of Jordan, Preschool

“Our girls both love going to Children’s Discovery in Little Canada! Alternately “going to school” or “going to work” (to be like mommy and daddy) is something they look forward to every day! The staff have been great for the girls and very easy to work with. Whether we need extra days on short notice or have questions on billing, activities, etc, we know they will always do their best for us and our family. We love the extra activities available as well, including field trips, music class, soccer, Spanish, and I’m sure I’m leaving some out. We’ve recommended Children’s…

“I have 7 children, and Children’s Discovery Academy has been apart of my family for just over 14 years. All of my children have attended the program, and I wouldn’t go anywhere else. I leave my children knowing that they are in good hands. The staff are well trained, the center is well maintained, the curriculum is wonderful, and most of , ALL of my children are happy with their care while there. They are always happy when I drop them off and happy when I pick them up. Having a child with food allergies, and asthma, I was very…

“I first learned about CDA from my sister, who used to have my niece and nephew attend when she lived in St. Paul. I’ve heard nothing but great things and seen how it’s one of the top rated centers for kids. I love CDA because it’s been nothing but amazing from the beginning. My daughter has been there almost 2 months and I’m glad I made the switch when it was needed for us. The elementary styled building gives it that spacious, organized and welcoming feel when you come. The staff is always so friendly, the place is secure and…

“Our child was very well cared for and nurtured by the staff. They actually were like a second family. The environment is VERY positive and well balanced between play time and learning. When she started kindergarten her teacher couldn’t believe how well prepared she was. I have recommended Children’s Discovery to other parents and will continue to give my full endorsement to the staff and positive learning environment.” Julie from St. Paul Grandmother of Jasey, Pre-Kindergarten

“We have brought all three of our boys here (Little Canada location), and couldn’t be happier with our choice. Our kids received great care throughout their time here. The teachers are wonderful and take an active interest in the kids! My kids enjoyed the many enrichment programs that were available, and I appreciate that they can do activities (soccer, dancing, music, etc) in-house; much less driving for our family! I also love the varied programming across the year; picnics, water days, field trips, book fairs, and dance parties. It keeps things fresh and interesting. On top of the great programming…

“I have two children enrolled in CDA Little Canada. My daughter has been attending CDA since she was 9 months old. We loved her teachers in the Infant room. Her regular teacher was Miss Kristi, who provided excellent care. She has since moved to the Toddler room with Miss Sam and she is learning and developing at such a rapid pace! My son started in the Pre-School room with Miss Amberly about a year ago. He has also improved greatly in his communication skills, is more confident and talkative vs. when he first arrived. I am hopeful he will be…

“My son’s language skills have been developing rampantly every day! He recently moved from the infant room to the toddler room. CDA facilitates a two week transition period between classrooms to help the child ease into a new routine. By his first official day in the toddler room, there were no tears and he was excited to get the day started. CDA clearly knows what they’re doing! I highly recommend CDA not only for the great childcare they provide, but also the curriculum they use to help children develop. It’s amazing seeing my son come home with new words in…

“We have been so happy at CDA! Our son started in the infant class and is now in toddlers. All of the teachers and staff have been so wonderful and genuinely seem to care about our son. We love all the updates we get throughout the day and he has been learning so much everyday. We are amazed at all the new skills we notice! Our second son is about to start in the infant room and we are so happy he will have the same teachers his brother does. It is much easier to go back to work knowing…

“We could not be more satisfied with our experience at Children’s Discovery Academy and would not hesitate recommending the center to anyone. Every day, I am so impressed with everything – how caring the teachers are, everything my daughter is learning every day, the constant communication, etc. We love that lunch is provided every day and that a variety of extra curricular classes are offered during the school day. Overall, it is such a great center and we are so happy with our decision to enroll our daughter!” Amanda from Roseville Mother of Maddie, Preschool

“The infant room has been a wonderful place for our daughter to learn and grow. The staff are always very nurturing and caring. They have helped our daughter develop and have provided opportunities for her to socialize and try new things. There is a strong sense of family in the infant room and they are always welcoming.” Katie from Vadnais Heights Mother of Greta, Infant

“Our daughter Wren has been at Children’s Discovery since she was seven months old. Now at five years, her development has been outstanding and we could not be happier with where she is at going into kindergarten both academically and socially. She’s loved her teachers and looks forward to the extra curricular activities that all take place during school, from athletics, dance, Spanish to music. She is thriving and we can not thank the teachers and staff enough. We will be sad to leave in the Fall.” Missy from St. Paul Mother of Wren, Pre-Kindergarten

“I love what I see at Children’s Discovery Academy! I am not a parent of Owen, but one of his grandparents. As a special education teacher I realize the patience and love of children that it takes to do what the staff at Children’s Discovery Academy does. Whenever I pick Owen up I can tell how caring the staff is and how much Owen likes them. The daily updates and pictures are SO fun to read and look at. I look forward to it each day. I’m not sure how they find time to post what they do. It’s so…

“We’ve been a Children’s Discovery family for 7 years and will never consider going anywhere else! The teachers and care provided at CDA are truly exceptional in EVERY classroom. We have children ages 3-13 and have tried other centers before discovering CDA, but nothing compares to the love, support, and awesome education at CDA.” Michelle from Vadnais Heights Mother of Avery, Preschool

March 24, 2020

“CDA has continued to impress our family. Our son loves his teachers and is hard to pull away at the end of the day. We are kept up to speed on how he is doing with updates to Daily Connect. Staff are friendly, respectful, and share helpful tips about how we can manage challenging behaviors at home. The annual process of reviewing progress with parents is also great. Dax is our first so we’re not always sure when to tackle new skills like dressing himself, potty training, etc. CDA provides support for kids learning these skills there and also shares…

“We toured a lot of daycares before choosing Children’s Discovery Academy. From the moment we walked in and met with the staff, we knew this was the one. We were instantly impressed, and the teachers are wonderful. We truly feel comfortable with everyone of them! She has learned so much since starting, and she absolutely loves it. We’d recommend Children’s Discovery Academy to anyone.” Stephanie from Little Canada Mother of Scout, Toddler

“I have a four year old and a 1 and ½ year old who attend CDA. They love going to school and it is evident the teachers genuinely care for them. Teacher Casi in Pre-K is a very skilled teacher who is clearly knowledgeable about children’s development. She clearly puts a lot of effort into her curriculum and is very adept at communicating with children and parents. We have noticed an incredible jump in social maturity and independence since our daughter has transferred to the Pre-K room. She loves her teachers (Joy, Sarah) and is excited to show them new…

“My son Aiden is thriving very well in Kindergarten and I believe it is because of what he learned and gained from being part of Children’s Discovery. He very much enjoyed his teachers and was very excited to be going there. He learned to be generous, respectful and confident. There is always new and exciting events which is one of many reasons he never wanted to leave. They have a great learning curriculum and they are very attentive and protective of the children. The teachers and the administrators are very accommodating and supportive of what our son and the others…

“Our son has been in enrolled for 1 year and we have had a very positive experience. Since enrolling, his social & emotional, physical, language and intellectual skills have all grown so much. Just as important my son loves going to school. He is always excited to talk about his teachers, friends and activities. We are happy with the toddler program and believe my son receives a high quality of care from teachers!” Michael from Vadnais Heights Father of Isaac, Toddler

March 24, 2020

“Children’s Discovery has won me over! As a father of three, my wife and I did not have a need for childcare for our first two. I was very nervous and felt like I was letting my child down by choosing childcare instead of working less but my fears were put at ease immediately by the daily updates and the attention my child receives each day I drop him off. When we come in my child is hesitant but each day one of his teachers will greet him and include him right away! At home, Louie is active and playfully…

“We feel so happy we chose Children’s Discovery Academy for our child. All staff treat our child like their own and it is clear he feels loved each and every day. Daily connect is such a nice touch and allows us to know what is happening during our child’s day.” Nick from Vadnais Heights Father of Owen, Toddler
