Located in the heart of downtown, our Minneapolis school offers an exceptional early education option for parents working nearby, plus easy access for nursing mothers, classroom celebrations and events, and informative parent seminars. Free attached parking allows easy drop-off and pickup, plus convenient skyway access makes this location ideal for families who work or live downtown.

A private, state-of-the-art, outdoor, rooftop play terrace is specifically designed to offer a variety of large-muscle choices for children of all ages and stages of development. Rare for urban child care play spaces, our layout provides a generous open space to run, jump, and roll, plus fun play components that create a perfect environment to experience nature and the outdoors. In addition, we take full advantage of our access to downtown culture, including field trips to Target Center family shows, Orchestra Hall concerts, and more.

Our school is proud to offer a Certified Nature Explore Classroom. Click here for more information.

Since the children are close to my work,
I am able to take part in their day by reading to their class,
accompanying them on field trips, and taking them to lunch.
It gives me peace of mind to have them close by.
