Discovery Kids Child Care

We started in 1994 as Safe B.A.S.E. (before and after school environment) 

In 2016, we rebranded as Discovery Kids when expanding our program to include an extended learning opportunity for preschool age students. 

In 2017, we expanded or program when we added infants and toddlers to our care!  Our infant and toddler rooms are licenced rooms while our preschool and school age rooms are certified through the Minnesota Department of Human Services. 

We offer care from 6 weeks through 6th grade! 


Mission Statement
Discovery Kids is designed to provide childcare where children can learn and grow physically, emotionally, intellectually, and socially. Through our daily schedule, each age group will have sensory development, motor development, language development, and social interaction.

  

Philosophy

At Discovery Kids, we strive to create a learning environment that is safe, stimulating, and encouraging. Children develop knowledge of their world through active interactions with caregivers, peers, materials, and events.  

Operations
We are open from 5:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. each day except New Year's Day, Good Friday, Memorial Day, 4th of July, Labor Day, Thanksgiving Day, the day after Thanksgiving Day, Christmas Eve Day and Christmas Day.

Pre-registration is required prior to attending.  All forms must be turned in to Discovery Kids before your 1st day of attendance.
