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.”

Best Investment Ever!

“My son has been through both public school and Children’s Discovery Academy programs. I am so grateful for the education program, field trips, healthy food options, and all around curriculum this academy offers. The teachers are wonderful and genuinely care about the children. The small class sizes have been essential for my son’s learning needs. I would recommend CDA to any parent that is looking for a trusted care option that facilitates learning and adventures for your child.”

Don’t know how we’d function without CDA

“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 decide if she likes school or daycare better! We are so grateful for the planning and care that goes into taking care of our children. As two parents who work full, we don’t know how we would function without the stability and offering of CDA.”

So glad we found Children’s Discovery Academy

“We have been incredibly pleased with Children’s Discovery Academy. Even before our kids started attending the responsiveness of the staff has been tremendous. It’s so nice to have a place to bring your children where you know they will learn, have fun and enjoy going.”

Caring Place

“I love how caring everyone is at Children’s Discovery. I truly feel that each teacher and staff member really cares for each and every child. They make each child feel special and that means the world the me as a working mom. It’s hard enough leaving your children each day. I know that they are getting love, learning and socializing at CDA. I love that I can see updates on daily connect. It makes me feel connected to my children and comforts me knowing they are o.k. I am so happy we found CDA when we moved here!”

I’m constantly impressed

“You know that your children love their daycare when they request their Saturday to be “just like school”! They enjoy craft time, free play, reading, group time, field trips and much more. I am constantly impressed by the facts that both my preschooler and school age children share with us after spending the day at CDA. My preschooler loves to mimic her teachers – often sharing the “Theme of the Week” or “Book of the Week” with her younger sister. All the teachers do an excellent job of educating the children and caring for them. We attended two other daycare centers before finally switching to CDA and have never regreted the decision. I only wish we had started there from the beginning! We’ve attended both the Vadnais Heights and Little Canada centers and highly recommend both.”

It’s a really great place!!!

“I researched many day-cares before choosing Children’s Discovery. My son has been there for about a year and a half and I am very pleased with everything there. The staff is nice, and they do so many fun things with the children. My son loves going and loves all the staff. My other son goes to the school-age summer program when he is out of school and they also fill the kids days full of fun activities. I would recommend any parent to bring their child to Children’s Discovery. It really is a great place!!!”

Two Happy Kids = Two Happy Parents

“Our children have been attending CDA since Fall of 2008 and we’ve never looked back. For us, it was an easy choice since it’s a very convenient location, but also because we’d heard wonderful comments from others. Everyday we feel comfortable as we leave them in the hands of the staff and teachers and they are always friendly and helpful. They have helped our children through potty training up to the transition of heading off to Kindergarten. The center has provided them a comfortable place to learn and explore and we have all made friends with other children and families. Whenever we have had a question they have offered assistance and followed up to make sure everything was going well. It’s not easy parenting, and it’s been great to have others help and guide us through these years. We have taken advantage of the summer program for our older child and she has loved attending and the field trips were amazing. We love the fact that the kids get to go on field trips and also enjoy in-house activities. I highly recommend CDA to others and we will be very sad when our time here is done.”

The right fit

“When I started to look for a place for my children I visited many centers. I was first impressed by when I called for an appointment to tour Andrea told me not to make an appointment but just drop in. You get a real appreciation for how comfortable they are with their center.

When I did drop in the toddler room was in the gym and I was so impressed by the staff being right on the floor and playing with the kids and not just supervising. You could tell there was mutual love between the kids and the staff. I felt comfortable right away! The programs are wonderful and the turn over is so low. People that cared for my son are now caring for my daughter.

I had also glowing reviews from people who I work with who had their children here years ago and now I am giving glowing recommendations!”

We know they are safe

“Both of our children really enjoyed the summer program at Children’s Discovery. The staff is great! It is structured for plenty of summer learning while still allowing plenty of time to let them have fun just being kids. I’m so glad to have such a great place where we can bring them and know they are safe, having fun, and continuing in their learning experiences..”
