We are currently accepting applications for children ages 14 months – 7 years.
Grandma’s House Children’s Center
At Grandma’s House Children’s Center, children ages six weeks to 10 years old thrive in a nurturing and loving environment that promotes learning through play and dynamic formal instruction.
Located at Redeemer Health and Rehab Center in Minneapolis, children at Grandma’s House have the unique opportunity to benefit from an intergenerational setting by interacting with the “grandmas” and “grandpas” who call Redeemer home.
Since there is a strong correlation between a child’s early experiences and success throughout life, we believe that high quality child care should be all about enhancing a child’s learning experiences from birth through school-age.
At Grandma’s House, children are learning all day long through spontaneous and formal teacher directed learning; as well as through play, peer-interactions, and activities with the Redeemer residents.
Family-Centered Children’s Center
The children also have an opportunity to learn through the everyday life experiences shared together through our family-centered, multiple-age style of child care. Children receive lots of positive individual attention in our small family-style environment with a total of only ten children under school-age at a time.
We are licensed to have an additional four school-age children who join us on school breaks, before and after school, and during the summer months as well.
The teachers at Grandma’s House Children’s Center have a passion for making each child’s day fun and educational. Our teachers love having the opportunity to work with the children’s parents, sharing ideas back and forth on how to continually help the children as they learn and grow each day.
We strive to provide a safe, comfortable, loving, home-like, Christian environment where all children can learn and be respected, regardless of their individual differences. Respect toward self, others and the environment will be emphasized. We believe in the value of both structured and flexible schedules. We will strive to provide a place where children learn to recognize others as individuals and to value everyone.
We will achieve this in the following ways:
- In the classroom the teachers will provide a safe, comfortable, stimulating, and educational setting where all children will be exposed to basic life skills as well as culture, diversity, music, art, and literature.
- We believe that bringing the best teachers into your child’s life will provide a quality learning environment. Children learn more by what we do than what we say; the teachers take every opportunity to model positive, helpful interactions.
- We know that children need, expect, and deserve to be guided in ways that will help them be safe, happy, and well adjusted.
- We believe that every area of development (physical, emotional, intellectual, spiritual) must be acknowledged and provided for.
- We will help to develop your child’s self-esteem through play and guided activities where children participate, voice their opinions and feelings, and discover what makes them special.
- We do not believe in pushing any child to learn at an accelerated rate, and will not make a child feel pressured to achieve any developmental milestones.
- All children can and will learn at a pace that suits them. We will nurture your child where he/she is and guide him/her to places where he/she has the opportunity to learn and experience new things.
- We model life skills, based on a Christian heritage. Good morals start young, so emphasis is given to being honest and kind to others.
- We believe that older and younger generations can provide JOY to each other. We will take advantage of our intergenerational setting and interact with the residents in organized and spontaneous activities.
