    Our child care program goes beyond a basic babysitting service. We provide a gentle and loving atmosphere for children 33 months through preschool. We believe that by creating a nurturing, caring environment, you and your child can feel good about your time away from each other. 

    Your child will spend time in age appropriate activities under the supervision of our highly trained, dedicated staff while we follow your child’s schedule for naps and meals.
    The Edina Family Center is a 4 star Parent Aware Preschool.
