Our Mission

Kids Place works in cooperation with the families, schools, and the community of St. Louis Park to provide a high quality, professional child care program that is academically enriching, fun and safe for all children.

Our goal is to provide a safe, caring environment which allows your child the opportunity to learn and grow among friends. Whether your family has a preschooler, or school-age child, we understand your need to know that your child is well cared for during the day.

Best Practices

Kids Place is a part of the Community Education department of St. Louis Park Public Schools. Like all other district programs, we are governed by the policies, expectations and guidelines of our school board. In addition, the Kids Place early learning classrooms are currently working toward accreditation through NAEYC, National Association for the Education of Young Children.  Our school age classes provide choices for creative, social, and physical growth through a wide-range of enjoyable and meaningful activities and experiences.


All children ages 33 months through grade 5 are welcome to attend Kids’ Place.  You do not need to be a resident of St. Louis Park to participate.
