This is a great place for your young school age children to be before and after school. After school they start with a healthy snack. We have ample opportunity to play outside at Sylvan Park or the elementary playground; they play kickball, go hiking or take nature walks on the Root River Trail. In winter we also sled and build snowmen. We prepare lessons and activities focused around the seasons and holidays including plenty of arts and crafts activities. They can also play board games and have time to work on homework.
In summer we offer full day programming the same hours as the day care. We use the longer days to plan ‘themes of the week’, such as ‘Olympics’ and ‘Hawaii’ which allows for more in-depth learning and immersion in an idea. These themes allow us to plan field trips, see special events or have a guest come visit and share with us their related skills. We plan several field trips and outside activities the children can participate in throughout the summer. We also coordinate our activities so children can participate in the Lanesboro Summer Recreation Programs including the Preston Swimming Pool bus having its pickup location right outside our doors.
We have fun every day in a happy, safe environment that your child will truly enjoy and find new ideas and friendships.
