During these times of so much uncertainty, it is invaluable to our family to have such a wonderful place to bring our precious child to while we are busy at work. Can not recommend this place more highly!!” Rebecca from St. Paul Mother of Louie, Pre-Kindergarten

“We have been so happy with our experience at CDA, and the best part is that our daughter loves it too! The staff are so caring and there is great communication with them. We love the updates on Daily Connect! We also love that meals are provided, there are extracurricular options, and the vacation policy is a huge bonus. We feel like there is a great balance of having fun and playing, but also great learning activities.” Amanda from Roseville Mother of Madison, Pre-Kindergarten

“We have been attending Children’s Discovery Academy for over two years now. I feel very confident and safe with my children here. Especially during a pandemic, I am very thankful for all the precautions and extra steps that the teachers and staff take to make sure everyone is safe. Teachers and staff wear masks and temperatures are taken when kids are dropped off at school. During these challenging times, my kids are still getting the best care and education they can. The teachers are upbeat, positive, and genuinely love what they do. I love watching my kids grow and flourish…

CDA

“CDA’s teachers are all great! Overall our kids really like their classes and have a lot of fun. Teachers are all really involved and helpful. One thing to note is that all preschoolers (about age 3+) need to be potty trained so if you’ve got a kid that isn’t trained or has a lot of accidents that can be tough since no pull-ups are allowed. Overall it’s a great center though, teachers do their best to make sure the kids are learning and have what they need to be happy and healthy!” Kelly from Roseville Mother of Daxton and Maeve,…

“Eli loves going to preschool every day and that’s because of the wonderful teachers and staff. CDA is little community filled with love for all the kids.

“I have brought all three of my children here. They have an excellent curriculum and activities. The teachers genuinely care about the children and help facilitate and encourage a love of play and learning. With Covid, the school has done an amazing job of communicating and helping to keep everyone safe.” Melanie from Shoreview Mother of William, Preschool

“When I was pregnant with my first I toured and instantly loved CDA. Unfortunately, there were no infant openings at the time. We settled on another center but I still hoped I could get him in. Fast forward a few years and we made the switch. It was clear we made the right decision quickly. He was so happy, chatty, and excited after daycare. We welcomed our second son in July and he attends CDA as well. I love seeing him smile when he sees his teachers because I know he’s happy and well take care of. CDA has the…

“We were referred to Children’s Discovery by another CDA family and could not be happier! We came from a different preschool and are continuously impressed by CDA. The teachers in both the preschool and pre-kindergarten rooms have truly embraced our kids for who they are. The education they are receiving is exceptional and the enrichment activities available are great! Soccer shots, Tumble Fun Bus, and Play, Tap and Go music class are just some that our kids have loved! We would definitely recommend CDA to any family!” Mallory from Minneapolis Mother of Alex and Theo, Pre-Kindergarten and Preschool

“CDA was a welcomed relief for our family when we moved to MN during the summer of 2020. With the additional stress of the Covid pandemic, we wanted a school that took appropriate precautions, while allowing our kids to continue to develop and grow. CDA has the perfect balance we needed. One of our kids is in the Infant room. Kristi and her team are amazing! Our son loves going to school and we have peace of mind knowing they are taking great care of him. Our second child is in the Preschool class. Sam and her team keep our…

“Our baby was born few weeks after the Pandemic started. Despite being very happy with our choice of daycare, we were extremely nervous to send him outside the home. Ultimately he went and it’s been great. There have been a few cases amongst the teachers in different rooms but nothing has spread to the children due to diligent cleaning and mask-wearing policies. We probably don’t know the teachers as well as we would in a non-pandemic world but we know the class leads fairly well and feel that they do a great job with our son. They are extremely accommodating;…

“We chose CDA after meeting Dawn and hearing her genuine passion for and love for the babies and the work she does. Our first son has moved up to the toddler room and we gladly enrolled our second son in the infant room recently. Both our boys come home with smiles on their faces every day. Our oldest tells us about the phone he has, his activities, and his friends (which includes his teachers)! The teachers have not only been wonderful to our boys, they’ve been a wonderful resource for us as new parents. They welcome all questions and often…

“All of the teachers and staff at Children’s Discovery Vadnais Heights are AMAZING. Truly from the moment you walk in the doors to dropping off/picking up your child you will feel like you are welcomed and your child is cared for in a loving and educational setting. We have two boys enrolled currently starting from the infant room and have nothing but good things to say. Both of our boys love all of their teachers and we are amazed at how fast they are learning. The lead teachers are so good at communication and working with you and your child…

“Our son has been with Children’s Discovery since an infant and we have had nothing but an exceptional experience! It is so nice being able to drop off your child and know that they are in great hands! All of the staff is wonderful! The activities they do with the kids are so much fun. Seeing how much our son has grown and learned by being at Children’s Discovery is amazing! We highly recommend this amazing daycare center!” Nicole from White Bear Lake Mother of Landon, Toddler

March 2, 2021

“The teachers are amazing! They personalize the care and education based on our daughter’s personality and developmental stage. I love seeing the grin on her face when I drop her off and her excitement when she sees her teachers and friends. Children’s Discovery has been the perfect fit for our child. I recommend anyone looking for a genuine and nurturing center to establish care at Children’s Discovery – there is no better fit!” Alina Mother of an Infant

March 2, 2021

“We have been so happy with both our children at CDA! We started our children in the infant classroom and our oldest is now in preschool. All of the teachers truly care about the children and our kids are so happy to go to school each day. Overall, the staff has a very low turnover rate, so we have loved having both our children have the same teachers. They have learned so much and we have learned various activities to keep our kids learning and entertained at home. We also love the constant communication and updates we get throughout the…

“We cannot rave enough about CDA, especially their safety and care through this pandemic. As a public health nurse, I was anxious to continue bringing my kids, but the staff quickly eased my nerves as they provided families with information, follow protocols, and have done everything they can to keep all in attendance safe. The staff are top-notch; always welcoming the kiddos in with a big smile. The classrooms are clean and full of educational (and fun!) materials, manipulatives, and toys. The extracurricular activities offered have been wonderful, providing our daughter with space to explore and try new things. We…

“We recently welcomed our first child, Carter, almost one year ago (March 2020). My husband and I started looking for daycare right when we first became pregnant. With Children’s Discovery being incredibly close to my work, it was one of our first choices to look at. We knew it was the one! We toured two other centers but loved CDA best. They adore our son and take exceptionally great care of him on his three full day a week schedule. He barely takes his naps sometimes because he’s always having so much fun! Dawn leads a great infant room team!…

“After having our daughter at a different daycare for 6 months we decided to tour CDA, and I could feel the difference in the environment as soon as I walked in the doors. The classrooms all seemed so well managed, happy, inviting, and organized. Our child has been so happy since joining CDA, I have never picked her up without seeing her engaging with the other children or teachers with a giant smile on her face. The teachers have excellent communication with the parents, and they are so warm and caring. Within two weeks our daughter came home using the…

“CDA has been more than we could have ever imagined in a child care center. The teachers truly love what they do and they love the kids. We feel great sending our son to a place where he is taken care of like he was at home and where he is learning and making friends. We love that we get daily updates and that the teachers and aides always keep us informed about what our son learns and does at school. We love CDA!” Nicole from White Bear Lake Mother of Miles, Infant

“We love this daycare! Micah has started in infants and now in Toddlers! It’s amazing to see how smart he is and what he’s learning at daycare! We love his teachers and also Lauren who gave us our first tour! Lauren made us feel so comfortable leaving Micah in their care while we’re working! If this is one of your options – just pick them!” Teresa from Stillwater Mother of Micah, Toddler

“Both of our girls have been with CDA since they were 3 months old. There’s no one we would trust them more with. The teachers and staff always know who we are and are so warm and welcoming. This year during COVID they opened a school-age distance learning classroom. Our daughter could attend her own school with help, care, and friends around her. During the COVID school shutdowns, we knew our daughter was safe and taken care of. ” Rachel from White Bear Lake Mother of Lizzie, School-Age

March 2, 2021

“We are so happy to send our children to Children’s Discovery. Both of our children had the pleasure of being in the infant room on up. We are so happy with how well they have done. Helping our oldest learn so many new skills and care for our infant from birth to walking, especially during this pandemic. Despite the difficulty, they have worked hard to keep the facility safe and continue to care for our children. 3 years later, the infant teachers remain the same and still touch base with our preschooler. We are so happy to have our kids…

“I was recommended to CDA to a very close friend and it was the best word of mouth advice I have ever received. My son started right after his 4th birthday, so now in his first full year of pre-k and I have to admit I am going to cry the biggest tears when it is time to send him to kindergarten. His teachers have become family, he is loved and supported, he feels it, and as a mother-that is the best thing we could ask for. The education he is receiving is the real added bonus. My son is…
