As part of the community for over 25 years, our Edina school is enjoying educating second generation families. Our school is staffed by caring and talented teachers who have a reputation for successfully preparing children for the challenges of kindergarten. This welcoming school is located on a tree-lined street in the heart of Edina and is an exceptional learning environment for young children.

There is no peace of mind greater
than having our daughters feel happy and excited
to go to school in the morning and to be equally
happy and content at the end of the day.

In her role as Operations Coordinator, April enjoys supporting busy families during this very important stage of early childhood. As a parent of two young children, April knows how hectic life can be. She is quick to lend a helping hand, offer a listening ear, or share a story about a child’s day. Early morning greetings and end of the day conversations are among the highlights of her day, “Engaging with our families each day is the best way to keep a pulse on the heart of our school.”
April graduated from Bemidji State University with a BS in early childhood education. She began her career in early childhood as a Head Start Program Coordinator and has been with Kinderberry Hill since 2012. April credits her third grade teacher for sparking her love of learning, and is honored to assist our students in becoming bright, successful little learners.
