  • We refer family members/provide access to other Family Partnership services as needed.
  • Your preschooler will receive individualized attention, and we get to know you as a family too.

We provide highly rated education.

Our early childhood education and care is top-rated by leading authorities.

We are an Anchor Partner of the Northside Achievement Zone. NAZ partners use evidence-based practices to close the achievement gap for students of color. We have been accredited by NAEYC (National Association for the Education of Young Children) and 4-star rated (the highest level) by Minnesota’s Parent Aware. We have also been rated as Strong Beginnings Centers by Hennepin County and the Minnesota Department of Human Services. This rating requires additional program components (such as higher staff to child ratios) that deliver increased kindergarten readiness and family engagement.
