Building Skills to Help Them Succeed

Founded in 1986, Playschool Child Care, Inc. has been serving kids and families in Maplewood, MN and the surrounding area for more than 25 years.



With trusted programs and curriculum, we provide child care and educational experiences that support a child’s whole development. We strive to provide a strong foundation and framework for each age level that is developmentally appropriate. We also offer individualized programming for youth who have higher needs and challenges.


In Playschool programs, values like fairness, cooperation, friendship, and honesty are part of our daily curriculum. Children learn values such as responsibility by caring for pets in each classroom and by participating in the planting, watering, and harvesting of our rain and vegetable gardens. They learn financial skills by playing games with play money and cash registers. Even lunch is an opportunity to learn, where children are taught to ask their peers questions and then listen for the answer, reinforcing basic building blocks of social interaction.


These are just a few of the daily activities that our enthusiastic teachers use to provide educational experiences for each child. Our curriculum is centered around hands-on and engaging activities that build skills to help kids succeed in school and later in life.


Living, Learning, Thriving for More Than 100 Years


We’re part of an even larger tradition of education in this community that began more than 100 years ago. Our historical building represents a commitment to the education of children that began on the property in the early 1900's.  Our 2 1/2 acre play area is a source of pride for us and offers kids dynamic opportunities for creative play and social learning.


We’re proud to be continuing this tradition of education and caring for the children and youth of this community.
