“Our daughter has been at CDA since infant room and loves going every day. The teachers create an excellent curriculum and she has learned so much since starting there. They have helped us work with our daughter throughout potty training and have been supportive throughout the process. The administration team is excellent to work with and always communicating with the parents to keep us informed of important information.” Chris from White Bear Father of Sophie, Toddler

“I cannot say enough how much we love CDA-Vadnais Heights. Our oldest has spent time in each classroom now as she has made her way into KG and now uses before and after care. Our youngest is now in the preschool class. The teachers are truly amazing, showing their love and care for each child that walks in their door. The support staff are the best, always saying hi and checking in with a smile on their face, even when my kiddos are in a different class. The office staff are phenomenal with communication and so welcoming. I have and…

“I get the best of both worlds with Children’s Discovery because I am a teacher and my children are there. Knowing our children are in great hands gives us such a peace of mind. Our first child was at in home before coming to CDA and the transformation she has made since is so fantastic to see! She loves to share with us about her day! I am amazed at all the wonderful things she has learned and I can’t wait to watch her grow and learn more! Our son is thriving in the infant room and I love all…

“When we started looking for daycare options for our first born son, we didn’t know where to begin! We asked around to all of the friends we knew who had kids in the area and (not exaggerating) they all said to check out Childrens Discovery Academy. We took a tour and felt very confident that they would take great personal and special care of our son. Since starting – 4 months ago – there hasn’t been a day where have second guessed our choice of where to take Olen. Everyday we have pictures sent to us of his day, updated…

“We love Children’s Discovery, couldn’t be happier with them! Our son loves going there, and they get the best pictures of his smiling face throughout the day. The app they use works great to keep us connected during the day, and the pictures they share are a nice little bonus to get me to the end of the work day. We always tell everyone that we go to Children’s Discovery, and would highly recommend them to any parent looking for child care.” Mike from White Bear Lake Father of Carter, Toddler

“Our daughter has been at CDA since she was 3 months old. Now she’s 7.5 and we wouldn’t think of going anywhere else. She is attending on school closure days and in the summer and she gets so excited when she knows she’ll get to go to CDA on a school closure day. The teachers and staff at CDA are caring, warm, communicative and passionate about kids. It’s been amazing to watch our daughter grow up at CDA. They really have been partners in raising our daughter. And we’d recommend them to any parents looking for a daycare.” Rachel from…

“Children’s Discovery has a group of amazing teachers that truly care about your kids. My kids are always talking about their own teachers and other ones they know from the other rooms. I was drawn to the family feel of this center when touring and that is exactly what you get. My kids are constantly learning new things and are excited about it. I’m impressed with all the creative ways they teach. They use the BabyConnect app so you always feel connected to what your child is learning and you get a lot of cute pictures!” Brietta from Gem Lake

“From our first meeting with CDA staff, have been impressed with the staff’s warmth, enthusiasm, obvious love for children, intentional programming, fabulous communication with parents, and dedication to providing a safe and fun learning environment. Our daughter truly loves going to school and has flourished in the pre-k classroom, both in her academic and social skills. We are thankful that she has caring and attentive teachers, great friends, and such a wonderful variety of activities while we are working. She has also really enjoyed the extra-curriculars the center offers, which have provided her with enrichment opportunities (dance, music, tumbling) without…

“In our almost 2 years with CDA, we have had nothing but an incredibly positive experience! It is so obvious and overt that the teachers genuinely care about the well-being and development of our son Max (and I am sure ALL the kids there). They are overtly caring, and it is clear the education he is getting is excellent – his language and motor skills have skyrocketed in his time there. The ultimate testimonial – we are so thrilled with the care and education that Max has received that our daughter Chloe will be starting at CDA in a few…

“Our son absolutely loves the Toddler room and we are so happy knowing he has an absolute blast everyday. The teachers take so much time and attention to all the wonderful learning activities, arts and crafts, and imaginative play they do everyday. Our son continues to excel in all areas of development and he is talking up a storm thanks, in large part, to all the staff at CDA. We couldn’t have picked a better daycare for our family. ” Nicole from White Bear Lake Mother of Miles, Toddler

“We’ve had our son at Children’s Discovery Academy in Vadnais Heights since he was 9 months old and I’m so happy with CDA! My son is now in the toddler room, and both he and I adore his teachers (Lauren & Alexis). It’s so clear that they love my son and he gets so excited to see them each morning. Lauren sends out a weekly email where you get to see the activities for the following week, and I’m always so impressed by their creativity: they keep the toddlers busy and entertained while also teaching them life skills like taking…

“We absolutely adore everyone at Children’s Discovery Academy! We have never once had to worry about our son or his happiness. He loves being there and learns so much and plays so hard! The teachers are beyond wonderful and we are so blessed to have found CDA!” Emily from White Bear Lake Mother of Carter, Toddler

“I have a five-year-old and a two-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. Our daughter turned five late in the year so we were worried she would be a bit bored spending…

“It’s always so hard to entrust your young kids to others so you can go to work. My husband and I had a couple of depressing experiences with other childcare centers, and I was beginning to worry that maybe my expectations were just too high. Then, a good friend referred us to Children’s Discovery and my whole life became so much easier. I was extremely relieved and grateful to have finally found peace of mind! My toddler loves her school and her teachers. They communicate every detail of the day, plus pictures of my kids having fun, through an app…

“When it comes to my boys, I strive to make sure they get the best I can offer them. A great deal of thought and research went into care provider options before interviewing and selecting Children’s Discovery. During the interview, follow-up, and enrollment the staff is excited to get to know you, include you and be the best they can be. I find this behavior to be top tier and well beyond their nearest competitor, New Horizon. My boys came with special nuances that required the extra mile, and Sam and Brit were more than willing to step in, stay…

“As a single parent, it was very important for me to choose a childcare provider that my child would love, as she attends full-time. The teachers and staff are amazing and understanding and readily share updates and tidbits about her day, and even photos on the DailyConnect app, which is huge for me. My child comes home every day spouting things she’s done with her teachers and friends, and new things she’s learned. Every morning she’s happy to go to school, which was never the case with some of our previous childcare providers. Also, in these weird covid-times, CDA is…

“Deciding to enroll our first baby at a daycare center was a really difficult decision for us but we could not be any happier that we did so at Children’s Discovery. As we came to know the staff, it quickly became obvious that they care about the children immensely. I’ll never forget having to pick my daughter up when she was sick one day and they were just holding her and rocking her, rubbing her back just as we would have done at home! The structure “school” provides has also really helped our daughter through the tough transitions (two naps…

“My husband and I visited another daycare before choosing to put a deposit on a spot in the infant room, almost 7 months before our baby would attend. As first-time parents, we didn’t know what to expect from daycare, but we are so happy with our choice! The staff in the infant room are wonderful and always greet us and our daughter with a smile. We love the ease of the mobile app which lets us know how she is doing throughout the day. The pictures they send show us just how much fun she is having!” Elissa from Little…

“I love the staff at CDA. They take such good care of my baby boy, he talks about his teachers being his friends!!! I have peace of mind at work knowing he’s in good hands. The daycare app they have is so so convenient for me because I love to see what he’s doing and they make sure to keep it updated every day! The directors Julie and Roxy stay very up to date with their emails and information about the center and their response time is amazing! I will definitely keep him here as long as I can! Big…

“Children’s Discovery Academy is a great place for our little ones to learn! They both started out in the infant room and are now in the Pre-k and Toddler rooms. They LOVE going to school each and every day. CDA has an excellent, evolving, and engaging curriculum in each of the classrooms. They incorporate music, hands-on, sensory, responsibility activities into each day. The extracurricular activities are awesome as well and my little ones keep track of each day of the week by which activity they’ll be doing! The teachers and director, Julie, are very responsive to any questions that we…

“I highly recommend Children’s Discovery Academy – Little Canada. They are well organized in what they do and have a great curriculum for the children. Sophie enjoys going so much that even on weekends she will sometimes say, “I’m ready to go to school!”. She loves looking at her daily pictures from her classroom and is so excited telling us about her day (or whatever we can decipher at her age). Bonus points go to their chef and the rotating menu they serve to all the kids. It allows them to try new foods and at least I know she…

“Avery has a great time at CDA. He really enjoys his teachers and the staff is great.” Ryan from Maplewood Father of Avery, Pre-Kindergarten

“So glad we found CDA. We love them and our kids love it there.  Everyone is professional, friendly and you can tell they genuinely care. The communication is great, with an easy app and photos daily. The curriculum is amazing and the kids learn so much every day. If I could give them more than 5 stars I would. ” Rachel from White Bear Lake Mother of Evie, Toddler

“Jude came to CDA when he was 18 months old, and still not walking – we were worried he’d be a butt scooter for life. He’s also naturally shy despite being in a daycare center since he was 5 months old. Within just a few weeks at CDA something just seemed to click – he felt more comfortable and started testing his boundaries more, to the point that he was walking confidently (instead of only with a walking toy) after about 3 weeks. The open and flexible feeling of CDA with just the right amount of structure made his transition…
