Early Adventures Preschool Age Care

Full-Day Care with Preschool Component

Early Adventures is the full-day care with preschool option of Robbinsdale Area schools. By combining high quality childcare with the  district’s preschool curriculum, this program offers an opportunity for students to prepare for Kindergarten in a safe, nurturing setting with adults who are especially trained to work with preschool students.

Staff with a combination of education and experience especially suited to preschool aged children will lead curriculum focused on social, emotional, physical and creative development skills through out the day. A district teacher will provide students with a preschool experience centered around language and literacy, as well as mathematical thinking  each day. A formal assessment of each student will be conducted at least twice a year to ensure the needs of each child are being met.


Early Adventures is open to any student who is eligible for Kindergarten the following school year, not limited to Robbinsdale Area Schools. (We take students 1 year before kindergarten) All students must be toilet trained before beginning the program. Students who have completed Early Adventures are guaranteed registration in Summer Adventure Club.


Early Adventures is located at FAIR at Pilgrim Lane and Neill Elementary. At both locations students will have access to many amenities including a playground specifically designed for preschool aged children, a gym, and a computer lab.
