Preschool & Infant Care Recommendations

Posted by sstieven @sstieven, Dec 13, 2018

Hi all, my apologies if this is listed in a recent post (I skimmed through but couldn't find what I was looking for). We are relocating to Rochester from St Louis.! We are looking for preschool recommendations for our 4 yo son, in St. Louis he was in a Catholic school MWF half day program and has done well. Ideally we are looking for somewhere he could attend similar to a school setting, but hoping for a placement for our 7 month old girl too. We looked at St. Francis Assisi and it does not seem they have any openings for him to start there so we are expanding our search to a preschool/daycare type setting. We will be living on the south side of Rochester. Any sitter/nanny recommendations also appreciated! Thank you!

I realize it's not on the south side of Rochester, but I invite you to check out the space at Holy Spirit school. They offer 3-day and 5-day preschool programs and are not quite so pressed for space as St. Francis. My wife works in the kindergarten classroom as a para, and we still have 2 children in the school (5th and 7th). If you have any questions about the school or parish, please let me know and I'll try to answer.

Can I also have recommendations for day care as well? My son is 2 months now and we will move from Thailand to Rochester late April. Thank you.

There is great Facebook groups you'll need to follow: (1)Southern MN daycare providers and (2)Rochester, MN and surrounding Area Child Care/Babysitter Connections. You can find amazing in home daycares if you post the location you are looking for, the times and what the ages are of your kids. I found my daycare through those groups and couldn't be happier with her.
