Blessing Place

Blessing Place is a licensed, NAEYC Accredited, and 4 Star Parent Aware preschool program offered Monday through Friday from 9:00 am-12:00 pm, for children 18-33 months. Blessing Place incorporates a faith-based curriculum especially designed for this age group. Our professionally-staffed program runs from September–May and follows the Edina Public Schools calendar.  Children may register for one, two, or three days a week, depending upon their age. 

Our school is located on the first level of Normandale Lutheran Church. Our classrooms are decorated for our littlest friends and equipped with blocks, cognitive toys and games, manipulative toys, sensory play, arts and crafts, dramatic play and musical toys, and tot-sized bathrooms. We also enjoy a large indoor gym and motor space that has a parachute, riding toys, balls, climbing equipment, and slides. Each day we share in free play, learning centers, circle time, snack, large motor activities, music, and creative movement.

Physical: We seek to provide a variety of indoor environments equipped to help in the development of the child’s large and small motor skills.

Social: We seek to offer each child opportunities to develop a good self-image, to respect and care for our surroundings, and develop skills to communicate with each other.

Emotional: We seek to help develop appropriate emotional outlets for children as they work and play together in a loving environment.
