Welcome to Tour Time educational daycare in Apple Valley, MN. We serve families in the Apple Valley, Eagen, Farmington, and Lakeville communities. My name is Karen and I am the director.
Our school offers Infant Care, Preschool and other programs, and is nationally accredited by National Early Childhood Program Accreditation. We are also a four-star rated program through Parent Aware.
We share the children's experiences with their parents through daily conversation and documentation of learning panels, as well as our bi-yearly conferences. We plan many family events throughout the year, allowing the families to get to know each other.
We are excited to offer new technology in our school-age classroom. These enhancements include iPads featuring apps to create art, music and videos, tripods for moviemaking, robots for coding, a new gaming system and more!
All of my teachers have a two- to four-year degree in a child-related field, and we have nearly 90 years of combined experience. We hold monthly training for the staff, along with yearly CPR/First Aid training.
