The mission of Minneapolis Kids is to provide high quality child care services for parents during periods when students are not involved in regular school programs. The program offers a safe, nurturing, educational, and recreational experience where children are encouraged to pursue interests, develop friendships, independence, and confidence.

Parent/Guardian visits are welcomed. To arrange a site tour contact the Program Coordinator of the location to schedule an individual orientation.
