Outstanding Learning

“I am a live in auntie and have watched Lizzie’s development with CDA over 4 years as well as the new start of baby Evie this winter. 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 has always been eager to go “to school” and genuinely loves her time there, not common in my experience. She is superbly prepared for kindergarten and has outstanding social and academic skills. As a family we have appreciated the structure and regularity offered by their hours. This is an excellent place that is well worth the cost. I would highly recommend CDA.”

Excellent Experience!

“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 communication between parents and staff is Excellent. We are confident he will be ready for kindergarten in the fall!”

Phenomenal Center

“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 to anyone!!”

Son loves going to school

“My son Maxwell loves going to school. He loves picking out what to bring to share with his friends at school. We love to see the excitement when he goes to school. We have seen improvements with his knowledge and school since we transferred him to children’s discovery academy. We are super happy to have him with this great staff.”

Great friendships and preparation for school

“My kids have been at CDA since they were babies, and we get tremendous peace of mind from having them with such caring, fun teachers. Love that Darci boldly pursued sight words with the pre-k class this summer, and that epic adventures and epic friendships abound throughout the classrooms.”

We LOVE Children’s Discovery!

“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!”

Love CDA!

“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 everyone. I would highly recommend CDA!!”

Outstanding staff and great curriculum

“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.”
