Welcome to our nest!
Cardinal Kids Club
507-644-7128

Cardinal Kids' Club is a child care option for children enrolled in any Redwood Area School District Early Childhood preschool program. Our child care is open from 6:45 a.m. until 5:30 p.m. Monday through Friday, based on enrollment needs.

Our philosophy is that children learn through play. Our mission is to provide an educational childcare experience which meets the physical, social, emotional and intellectual development of children 3 to 5 years of age who participate in the Redwood Area School District Early Childhood program.

Children attending Cardinal Kids' Club receive a well rounded play experience and are able to attend their appropriate preschool program as well.

What is Play?
 
In his blog (posted November 19, 2008), Freedom to Learn, Peter Gray PhD defines play as:

Self-chosen and self-directed.
Activity in which means are more valued than ends.
Play has structure, or rules, which are not dictated by physical necessity, but emanate from the minds of the players.
Imaginative, non-literal, mentally removed in some way from "real" life.
Involves an active, alert, but non-stressed frame of mind.

At Kids' Club we learn through play.  This means that children's learning is enriched through their own choices and made more meaningful because they are experiencing what is important and valuable to them.

Be Curious and Learn!
