“I would like to THANK YOU ALL for being there for my baby…Gino. My child is with you 5 days a week, for 8 hrs each day. I must say the education he is receiving at a young age from CKA is incredible. Gino comes home everyday with a new skill. It makes me so happy that it makes me cry.

You ALL are very much appreciated. I can’t thank you all enough!!! 

“So, to make a long story short, again, THANK YOU from the bottom of my heart for teaching my child the things I don’t have time for, for hours. You all are beyond AWESOME.”

” I just have to let you know how much we’re enjoying the new app. Some days it feels hard to be at work and be away from our kids –and so fun to get updates and pictures of J.’s day. Especially because he can’t communicate as well about everything he gets to do while in preschool. The app really helps with the transparency of all the wonderful things your center provides and how hard the teachers and support staff work. Also really helps open the lines of communication during COVID or anytime. Thank you very much for making the change and thank you for everything you do (and have done) for our child/children. We really appreciate all of you!”

Our son has been going to Minnetonka CKA for the last couple of years and we have been very happy!  The teachers are experienced and organized.  They have respected and listened to our requests with caring for our little one.  My husband and I highly recommend CKA.

“Upon relocating to Minnesota, we initially were nervous about who would take care of our child while we worked. Creative Kids Academy Orono is a wonderful place and it has a lot to offer. Our child enjoys learning and the friends she has made there. Teachers are very friendly and the facility is amazing. We are thrilled! Thanks!”

“All the teachers and the center director are all so wonderful, caring and accommodating. We have a 3.5-year-old in preschool who has been going to CKA since she was 12 weeks old, and her little brother is now following in her footsteps.

My daughter has so much fun every day. We love the variety of activities, including yoga, karate, Spanish and lots of art. Plus all the extra summer activities.

The infant teachers have been so great in working with us and our son to figure out what works best for him as he acclimates to school.

Leaving your kids with someone else can be hard – especially when they’re babies. I wouldn’t trust mine with anyone else.”

“Thank you to all of the CKA staff who have taken care of our little Rudies over the past for years! The 3 of them have truly enjoyed their time with you. The girls have learned so much and Haydon has made some great friends! We can’t thank you enough for your support throughout the years with Jake’s crazy work and my health. We truly appreciate it. Thank you for taking care of our children! All the best!”

“My children have gotten wonderful care from Creative Kids teaching staff and have given my kids a great opportunity. I noticed it the most in how much my son has grown and matured over the past summers. When he was going into 1st grade I wasn’t sure if he would really be ready, but after being in a structured setting and the teachers working with him throughout the summer it really made a difference.”

“As any parent knows, being away from your little one is hard. Our daughter first started daycare at another center when she was 12 weeks old. I was a wreck. Everyone told me that it was normal and it would get easier. There were many things I saw there that made me uncomfortable and caused me such anxiety; I knew it wasn’t the right fit. That is when I called CKA and spoke with the Director. I made an appointment to meet her the next day. From the second she warmly greeted me, to the compassion and care she showed to our family and finally the pride she had in the center itself, I knew instantly in my heart, it felt right! And it is no different with the teachers, they were very warm and the love and care they give ALL the babies put a mommy at ease! It is very evident that they all love what they do, and aren’t just collecting a paycheck! Our family loves Creative Kids, and most importantly, when we pick up our daughter she is full of smiles. That tells me all I need to know!”

The Tainke Family – Orono

“We couldn’t be more thrilled with Creative Kids Academy in Orono! It’s always challenging to leave your newborn for the first time but Creative Kids made our experience so wonderful! We worked together with Creative Kids to create a smooth transition plan for our son and for us. Creative Kids was so accommodating and went above and beyond in making it a success. Our son has adapted very well to his new school and we as parents know each day he’s receiving the best care possible. Each day we receive a custom outline of our son’s day. It’s always great to see what he’s accomplished even when we can’t be there. We hope others discover Creative Kids Academy!”
