Infants

It’s never too early to start learning!
Ages 6 weeks - 18 months

During the infant stage of development, the main curriculum focus is on development of large milestones. The activities and teaching tools that our curriculum uses ensures that your infant is getting the essential time and development needed at this age. The focus is on long term skills that are linked to key standards for development, such as fine and gross motor, social and emotional, and sensory exploration.

Customer Testimonials

  • Our family recently moved to River Falls, and we were extremely apprehensive about finding a new child care provider. We toured a number of different childcare options in the area, and we were immediately drawn to Little Minds Learning Center because of the positive first impressions we had with the center director, staff, and facility. The center director returned all of our phone calls and emails in a timely manner and we made the decision to enroll at Little Minds Learning Center. Prior to our first day we felt anxious because our three children (3 months, 18 months, and three year old) previously attended an in-home daycare with 5 kids total, and they struggled with separation anxiety. To our surprise, after a week of attending our children had easy drop offs, and were excited to go to school to see their friends and teachers. Our Family loves the teachers and staff at Little Minds Learning Center. They always welcome our family with a smile, and we can tell they truly care about our kids. We appreciate the constant communication we receive from the classroom teachers in person, through email, and by phone. As a parent, the two things I want most for my children is for them to be safe and happy, and we have complete peace of mind every day they are there, which exceeds all of our hopes for what a child care center could be.

  • I have a 2-year-old girl and 3-year-old boy. They each enrolled in Little Minds Learning Center at 12 weeks old. Since then, I have had the pleasure to watch them grow into two intelligent toddlers. I love when they sing their ABC’s together in the car on the way home or practice their counting in Spanish. I appreciate the staff always greeting the kids by name in passing in the morning. My kids love their teachers, both current and past. They always run up to give past teachers hugs and I can tell the staff genuinely love my kids. I can’t say enough about the level of care and attention given to my kids.

  • After researching different child care facilities, I decided to take my cousin’s advice and look in to Little Minds Learning Center. Our daughter started in February 2016. From day 1 we have felt confirmation that we made the right choice in sending her there. Our daughter has a dairy allergy and has had 2 sets of tubes. Her dietary restrictions have been made priority by the wonderful kitchen staff, and I have received confirmation that while we were concerned about her speech/hearing (due to the numerous ear infections), she is advanced in her language range. I contribute this to the center and how well they work with the kids in language (including sign language!).

    The classroom cameras have been extremely helpful with leaving her under the care of people I didn’t know until she started. I get to watch her interact with other children, eat lunch, and even check in during sign language time.

  • Our family has been coming to Little Minds in River Falls since May 2014. We currently have 2 children enrolled, and have enjoyed bringing our children here. We understand how hard it is to keep track of so many kids, but the teachers always take time to let us know how they were each day. If anything happens, such as a fall we have always received a phone call soon after to let us know what happened. I am impressed by how much the teachers care and our children do like spending time with their friends in the classrooms.

  • We’ve been a Little Minds family since 2013 and my husband and I have absolutely loved the care both our boys have received there. All of the teachers we have worked with have been amazing, not only with taking care of our boys but with communicating with us as well. With working full time, it's important for us to know details of our children's day, which is done with daily sheets and face to face check in's at pick up. The curriculum and activities that are done throughout the day have helped our boys learn and grow so much. Our oldest was very prepared for Kindergarten and I know this was due to the things he learned at Little Minds! I may use the cameras to check in on them a little too much but I love being able to see them having fun! Little Minds is so much more than a daycare, it's truly a community. They offer a ton of activities and events for the whole family which are always a ton of fun. I just can't recommend them enough!
