Night Owl's Childcare is a 24 hour / 7 days a week childcare center located in Burnsville, Minnesota. We provide high-quality care every day of the week. Your children will love learning and playing in a safe, supportive setting that feel like home. Our staff members are trained in pediatric first aid and CPR, and we have more than a decade of experience in the childcare industry. There is at least two staff members on duty at all times in each classrooms, and we bring in additional staff when needed, so you can be sure your children are in good hands.
It is our mission to live a life of honesty, integrity, and unconditional passion, too never lose sight of what is most important, and to make the world a more beautiful place. We owe these children a chance to be cared for in a homelike setting where they are encouraged to be the best they can be.
At Night Owl's Child Care, we foster creativity, individuality, and independence in each and every child. We know that children learn by example, so we set high standards for our own behavior. We encourage learning through sensory activities, storytelling, and play. Homework help is also available for school-aged children. For curious parents, we can even set up web cams that let you check in on your children during their stay.
We know that this is a very precious age, and will work towards developmental milestones, healthy attachments and growth. Infants as young as six weeks are welcome at Night Owl's Childcare. We provide hands on sensory activates to promote learning, as well as variety of toys and materials to develop small and large motor development, language, and social understanding. At this age babies have their own unique schedule and with our 1:4 teacher/child ratio, teachers can learn their children's needs quickly and efficiently. Communication, both formal and informal, is key for building the relationship between families and teachers. Daily reports are prepared by the teachers, and parents have the opportunity to document any activity at home as well.
No longer content with peek-a-boo and multiple naps throughout the day, our toddlers are moving and grooving from morning till evening! Bursting with energy and a boundless curiosity, they are exploring the world around them as quickly as possible while refining development skills. The toddlers are offered unstructured play time each morning in order to allow them to enter the group at their own pace before moving into the day. We offer daily scheduled activities such as art, music, physical activities, dramatic play and story time in our flexible schedule. Our teachers are quick to promote the use of language, encourage movement, and create an environment that encourages social interactions. Our teachers are also potty training pros, working with families to move children from diapers to underwear and keeping consistent with the training moms and dads begin at home! The teacher/child ratio is 1 to 6.
From here your toddler will transform into their own little individual! With an age specific play yard, and energetic teachers, our 3's and 4's use their seemingly unending energy to move through the day. We provide a flexible schedule that includes art, group time, inside centers (blocks, manipulative, science, library) outside large motor activates and exploring. There is a heavy emphasis on language development and social conduct. Our teachers focus on developing the social abilities that our 3's and 4's will need as they grow, such as: sharing, manners, healthy habits, and of course, strong attachments and friendships. Beginning learning is introduced during group time, as our teachers use games and play to help children recognize colors, shapes, number amounts, and beginning science and math concepts.
This age group enjoy using their new vocabulary and social skills to dive headfirst into learning. They eagerly participate in group art projects, organized outdoor games, and independently in the room. Willing and able to do everything themselves, they are encouraged to develop self help skills and independent thinking. Teachers guide the day with cleverly designed lesson plans that promote learning through play and hands on discovery. Building upon the foundation laid in our younger rooms, teachers expand the children's learning as counting and shape and color recognition become more advanced, not to mention working on personal behavior such as manners and social skills.
Practically all grown up, our 4's and 5's are focused and well rounded. They have a solid grasp of what they like, what they want to do, and how things work. With their teachers acting as guides and facilitators of learning, our 4's and 5's spend most of their time involved in "hands-on" activities that tie into academic principles. Our teachers in this program skillfully weave in academic goals and objectives as they build on what children can do, and challenge them to try new things. Our kids contribute their own ideas and use their own problem solving strategies to explore the world around them. Ages 4's and 5's practice writing, have access to a variety of age appropriate books and language materials, and use each other to bounce new learning concepts around. While they still enjoy building castles in the blocks, managing a small flower shop in dramatic play, and helping care for the class pet in science, they also crave the pride of being able to write their name, learn their letters, and prepare for kindergarten. If you want your child to be prepared for kindergarten, our preschool program lays a great foundation and will set them up for a successful kindergarten year!
The learning doesn't stop when the bell rings! With a unique school age program that includes transportation to and from various local elementary schools, our before/after school program combines learning and fun for ages 5-12. Available before school and after school, our program offers a homework period, outdoor games and activities, movies, art projects, and much more! We are focused on building the whole child up, our school age program presents learning in a laid back and loosely structures setting, giving our big kids the chance to take a breath after a long day at school. These big kids are full of curiosity and ingenuity, tackling life's big problems (like how to build the perfect racetrack, using science to make exploding goo, or creating one of a kind masterpieces) and learning how to be leaders and positive role models.
Care is offered Monday through Sunday, before and/or after school and on all holidays like spring break/winter break and summer.
