Education And SchoolsChild Care
Bernie's Montessori School and Child Care Center has been in operation since 1988. We have locations in Richfield and Downtown Minneapolis. Richfield school serves children 6 weeks to kindergarten age. Downtown Minneapolis school serves children 33 months to kindergarten age.
The Montessori education method aims to take advantage of time periods in children's lives when they're at their greatest learning potential, which allows teachers to cater to their age and learning pace. Bernie's works with children on language development, geography and other sciences, math, art, music, and more. Sensorial materials are also used to help kids sharpen their senses, and the children are taken on picnics and educational and fun field trips. They are also served nutritious snacks daily.
