"We went back and forth for months as to whether or not we should send our son to preschool this year. We couldn’t possibly be more impressed with the attention and care given to every detail of his day. Everything from the learning experiences to the food he eats has been given great care and thoughtfulness. The teachers are filled with patience and enthusiasm daily and we feel that is hard to find. Our child who often would rather stay home than go anywhere, loves school days! We couldn’t be more thankful for Children’s Discovery!" Lauren from Maplewood Mother of...

"This is the best daycare I have seen. The teachers are all very welcoming and helpful. They all like to keep an open line of communication when it comes to your child's day and progress. They do a great job of planning activities for the children and the children enjoy doing whatever they have planned. They promote kindness and sharing. The center itself is always clean and never cluttered. I am proud to bring my child somewhere I know she will be well taken care of and have lots of fun learning new things! Would recommend to anyone!" Elizabeth from...

"We couldn't be more pleased with CDA. Maddie loves her teachers. Teacher Amberley clearly works hard to develop a curriculum that makes learning fun and engaging. She also puts a lot of effort into the conferences she holds for parents. I really enjoyed hearing about Maddie's progress from a teacher who is so knowledgeable about children's development. I am constantly amazed at the things my little girl is learning. They have taught her so many preliteracy skills (e.g., identifying letters by sound). Maddie loves to tell me about the different classroom jobs ("weather helper", "line leader"). The teachers at CDA...

"My son loves going to CDA for the fun activities, playing with friends and attention/love shown by the teachers. He's learning something new everyday and is proud to tell me about it. I love sending him to CDA because it's a clean and safe environment, and the communication can't be beat. I look forward to reading the Daily Connect report form his teachers and appreciate the weekly emails talking about the upcoming theme and what the kids will be learning. Very well run center from top to bottom." Dena from Vadnais Heights Mother of Bennett, Preschool

"I highly recommend Children’s Discovery to anyone with children! My son started in the toddler classroom and has since moved to the preschool classroom and he has loved every teacher and staff member at the center! The daily connect app keeps parents updated on the day and getting pictures is always wonderful. My child learns so much and has great social interaction with the kids in his class. We are so thankful for everyone at Children’s Discovery!" Tiffany from Oakdale Mother of Bobby, Preschool

"Enrolling Will in CDA two years ago was the best decision we could have made. Changing classrooms is difficult for little ones, and he had some setbacks with potty training. Kristin and the preschool teachers worked with us, listened to our concerns, and showed the utmost care to our son to help him overcome this difficult step! Will loves coming to CDA every day. Thank you!" Kaoyoua from Little Canada Mother of William, Preschool

"Will loves the weekly Show and Share more than any other activity! He always looks forward to bringing his items and telling us all about what his friends brought. The different themes provide great variety for their young minds!" Chris from Little Canada Father of William, Preschool

"Our daughter has been at Children's Discovery for three years and we could not be more thrilled with our experience. From the first time we visited we knew this was where we wanted to be. The curriculum and activities are fantastic and the amount she has learned and grown is a testament to her time there. She gushes about her friends and teachers. We love the confidence she has walking into school greeting everyone and excited for the day." Melissa from Saint Paul Mother of Wren, Preschool

"Brenna started at Children's Discovery Academy three weeks ago and it has been a flawless transition from her previous daycare center! The teachers and staff are cheerful, upbeat and have made Brenna feel special from the first time we came for a tour. We couldn't be happier to have chosen such a nurturing and caring environment for Brenna. She is always happy and excited to go to school and loves the indoor gym. CDA is a fantastic choice for your little ones!" Nicki from Oakdale Parent of Brenna, Preschool

"We feel confident dropping our youngest son, Teo at Children's Discovery Academy (CDA). They have truly been committed to a very professional and adequate care for our son. Our oldest son, Samuel also attended CDA and thrived there. Both of our kids have learned a tremendous amount while in care of CDA and were always excited in the morning when we told them it was time to go to school. As parents, we felt confident that we have made the right decision when picking CDA for our children. The staff always is polite and have all kinds of activities for...

"My family and I, absolutely love Childrens Discovery Academy! My son used to go to another care center and he would cry and scream and hide in the corner! He would refuse to go to his classroom and start crying as soon as he realized where we were going. Now, he gets excited! He runs to his classroom, he gives me a kiss, says goodbye and runs to play with his friends! I have never been so relieved to bring him to school and he enjoys it, its such a wonderful feeling. He also enjoys their healthy meals and loves...

"My almost 4 year old son started daycare when he was about 16 months and has been in it off and on ever since. It took a couple of different places to find the "right" care for our son. My family has felt like the Care at CDA can't be matched anywhere else. The attention to families and the children is so refreshing to see and makes you feel your child is in great hands as a working parent. Our once very shy child has developed into an outgoing, playful preschooler with the help of CDA staff. We would recommend...

"We've had our daughter enrolled in 3 other programs and while they good programs we have been very happy with our choice to enroll at children's discovery. She is making a lot of friends and is learning everyday. She loves to talk about the activities and field trips she goes on. In addition to the learning, it's good to know that the school serves higher quality food for her meals. I'd recommend children's discovery to other parents." Keegan from Roseville Parent of Chloe, Preschool

"My daughter is learning so much from team in the preschool class. She is gaining confidence in herself and her making friends. Her attitude had completely changed from throwing tantrums everyday to maybe once a week. She used to hate wheni dropped heroff and cling to me as i passed her off to staff, but now she is happy to go. I am very grateful for all the structure and guidance. I definitely recommend CDA." Tiffany from Vadnais Heights Parent of Paige, Preschool

"My son and daughter love the teachers, books, art, activities, playing outside and field trips. We are pleased that they get to interact with kids their own ages, and still love to play with each other. I've never seen such sharing in a preschool class, and just the other day, my daughter said 'Mom, we are all best friends in preschool."

"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

"So it goes without saying, your child grows and learns every day, with that being said, that is how Merissa’s world as progressed into Merissa’s universe. My child has been coming to CDA since she was a baby and with every new stage she grows the learning curriculum grows with her. She loves to go to school and play with her friends. As a parent I find that the CDA staff go above and beyond to make sure my child is well taken care of, in all aspects. I would not have pick a different child care center. My 13...

"We have two children attending the school and have been nothing but delighted with the progress and development of our children. Our three year old was very challenging to potty train but CDA encouraged her and she is currently fully potty trained. Each transition to a different room was wonderful. The teachers made the kids feel so comfortable and they were so patient with each of them. My three year old has learned so much in the preschool room. Her manners are fabulous and her verbal skills have increased dramatically. She has learned proper etiquette for many social situations and...

"I have sent two children through the excellent program at Children's Discovery. It has been a great experience. The staff are warm and caring, the curriculum has prepared my oldest for kindergarten, and the administration is incredibly responsive to parents concerns and needs. My kids love the daily routines and especially the wonderful field trips! Many members of the staff have been there for years and have watched my kids grow from babies to school-age. I am happy to have had a loving place to take my children." Julia from Roseville Mother of Liam, Preschool Program

"I found CDA four years ago when researching day care for my first child. I toured both locations and was instantly drawn to the atmosphere and staff. We chose Little Canada because of its proximity to our house. I've been so happy to bring both of my girls to CDA while I work! The spacious rooms and indoor and outdoor play areas give my kids the space they need. My children love their teachers and feel like the teachers are proud of them and their accomplishments. I get different answers all the time when I ask about their favorite thing...
