The Cradle Club supplies quality child care for infants, toddlers, and preschoolers. We are known for our superb kindergarten prep program. We provide two convenient locations: Downtown Minneapolis in Butler Square, and in Edina just off of 494 and Highway 100. I have had kids attend Cradle Club for almost 10 years. Our experience there was literally flawless.

From Our Website

Since 1986, we've made it our mission to make a difference in the lives of families by creating a place where children feel as much love and care each day with us as they do with you at home. Our unparalleled approach to early childhood education places nurturing, responsive relationships at the heart of everything we do in order to surround learning with the love and laughter every child needs to grow! Our daughter has attended the downtown Minneapolis location of the Cradle Club since April 2017, when she was just 3 months old.


At The Cradle Club, we believe the most profound learning happens when educational experiences are surrounded by laughter and love. By placing nurturing relationships at the heart of everything we do, our innovative programs immerse children in all the benefits of play-filled, theme-based learning and surround them with the joyous laughter and endless love that they need to flourish. Here at The Cradle Club, we believe every child deserves to feel loved and wanted. We understand that every child needs the security of a stimulating, safe environment, and must believe they are always accepted for themselves.


The Cradle Club is excited to play a part in your school ager's learning with flexible, on-site program options designed to help them flourish. We offer both full-time and part-time school year and summertime program options to best meet your family's needs and to help your school-ager reach their full potential. Our school year school age program is tailored to fit your child's specific needs by combining their virtual learning requirements with Cradle Club enrichments that extend their education and make learning FUN! Daily, your child will complete their distance learning program and related school work with the support of our excellent school age staff.


The "wonderful world of toddlers" is a very busy place! Our Toddler Program is full of energy and hands-on learning and is designed specifically to nurture the growth and development of the delightfully active, ever curious and fun-loving toddler! We've sent our toddler to the Minneapolis Cradle Club location since she was 5 months old. She absolutely loves her friends and all her activities (playground, art, songs, dramatic play, Spanish, etc.) in the toddler room. We love Cradle Club all-around - her teachers have all been wonderful, and we've always felt that it has a much more personable, "family" feeling than the average center (and very different from some of the more corporate-feeling centers we toured!).


Through loving and encouraging relationships with caregivers, your infant will flourish in a responsive environment tailored specifically to their needs! Our infant program places strong, nurturing relationships between infants and caregivers at the heart of everything we do in order to create a home-like environment filled with laughter, learning and love! Our infant caregivers are ready to love and care for your baby with a passion for excellence. Each caregiver is committed to creating an environment that fosters security and trust while responding to the interests and needs of your baby.


Our preschool program promotes school readiness using a creative, thematic approach. Through the exploration of engaging weekly themes, your preschooler will master important skills while expanding their imagination and making connections with the world around them! Our preschool teachers are both knowledgeable and experienced and they are committed to providing your child with the skills and abilities necessary to succeed in kindergarten and beyond. Our teachers excel at connecting with the minds and the hearts of the children in their care in order to best prepare them for their next adventure!
