About Us

We believe that all children deserve love, attention, and nurturing. We feel that a safe environment allows children to explore and grow. At Como Park Language and Arts Preschool and Childcare Center, we allow children to have hands-on learning experiences. This fosters age appropriate development. We read to the children every day. We believe that positive reinforcement is important for children to develop self-esteem. Children need an environment that supports free expression and stimulates learning. Most importantly, however, we believe that children need to have fun and love coming to school!

At Como Park Language and Arts Preschool and Childcare Center, we make sure that every child is involved in stimulating activities everyday. And of course, we make sure they have fun. Children learn best when they are having fun! At Como Park Language and Arts Preschool and Childcare Center we recognize that parents and guardians may have a difficult schedule and we support them the best we can. We offer a flexible schedule.  Parents can chose from either three, four or five days a week. We recognize the importance of work, and the stress and demands placed on parents. We strive to make it easier on  parents by giving them the knowledge that their children are in good hands.

All of our teachers pass a background check and the program is licensed through the State of Minnesota.
We serve nutritious snacks daily!
