Parent Aware Rating

We are in the process of re-rating our program!

To ensure children receive the highest quality care, we are going through a rating program operated by the Minnesota Department of Education, Minnesota Department of Human Services, and Parent Aware of Minnesota. The program is designed to rate facilities based on their ability to prepare children for kindergarten (starting at birth).
