Testimonials

“At the beginning of the school year, I took a scared, very attached to Grammy and Mommy 4 year old who cried all the time. Today, he drags me out of the house EVERYDAY…he says, “I LOVE SCHOOL!” This is the foundation for his next step. Thank you Minnieland Salem Fields.”

“Thank you for helping provide a stable, nurturing environment for children and peace of mind for parents. We believe the makeup, facility, and leadership at Minnieland Salem Fields is exceptional.”

 
Luke Y.

“When I drop off J. each morning, he is always welcomed with a smile, hug, and open arms. As a working mom, it has been a challenge for me to balance work and family and I often feel guilty about leaving J. for others to take care of him. Knowing that the teachers are there, makes my day go by a little smoother.”

Frequently Asked Questions

How can I be reassured my child will be safe and happy when I drop them off the first day?

All parents are encouraged to contact us as many times as needed during the day to check on their children. The first day especially can bring up fearful emotions and we want to be sure to soothe those inner fears. Only those individuals listed on the enrollment packets will be allowed, with ID, to pick up a child.

How are you preventing the spread of COVID-19?

Through social distancing, wearing masks, regular disinfecting/cleaning, temperature checks and health assessments are done on a routine basis to help prevent the spread of COVID-19. In addition, we have installed ionization equipment to reduce pathogens and viruses throughout the center.

I only work part time. Can you accommodate my needs?

Yes, we accept part-time enrollment of children if there is a set schedule. For example, your child will attend every week Monday, Wednesday, and Friday.
