At the Learning Garden we specialize in providing quality care and education for children from Infants to Kindergarten Entry.
All of our teachers receive annual training on our curriculum, our assessment system, on the development of children and a variety of other topics, as we have 4 Staff Professional Development Days and 8 evening training days per year.
Each Teacher, Aide and Assistant is assigned a coach that meets with them at least monthly to work on professional development goals. Example of goals include earning a Child Development Credential (CDA), strengthening their classroom management and behavior guidance strategies or learning more about the cultural diversity within our programs.
All of our preschool teachers participate in training and coaching from St. Paul Public Schools as well as CLASS coaching through Parent Aware.
Infant care is offered at our Maplewood location for children 6 weeks to 16 months.
We provide care for toddlers at both our Maplewood and Hamline locations for ages 16 months to 33 months.
We offer preschool at both our Maplewood and Hamline locations for ages 33 months to kindergarten entry.
