Our Mission

 Prepare the children in our community for a successful and fulfilling future throughout their education and beyond. We strive daily to provide loving care, as well as high quality and developmentally appropriate early childhood education; to provide environments, examples, and experiences that foster the development of healthy and appropriate relationships with self, others, and our environment; and to stimulate and cultivate cognitive, emotional, intellectual, social, and physical growth.

Harbor Highlands

Located in the center of the Harbor Highlands neighborhood; children have the advantage of belonging to a new community that was created to encourage strong families.


Situated on the Scenic Byway, our central location is convenient for families working both downtown and up the hill.


Housed in the historic Jefferson Square building adjacent to the medical district, this center is especially convenient for any of Duluth’s hospital and downtown business employees.

College Street

Centered between the University of Minnesota Duluth and the College of Saint Scholastica.  It is a convenient location for staff and students of both facilities.
