Our purpose and mission:

Our purpose and mission is to offer a high quality, state of the art childcare center with a home-like atmosphere in which children experience rich and meaningful learning experiences through the nature.

Our Spanish immersion program helps children be successful in our increasingly multicultural society.

Minorities and low-income families especially benefit from this program, as it provides first-class services at an affordable cost which are much needed in South Minneapolis.

Círculo de Amigos has earned the 4 Stars Parent Aware Rating. This is the highest possible rating tool designed to improve, support and celebrate the strengths of childcare and early learning programs.

OUR PHILOSOPHY IS BASED ON UNIVERSAL VALUES INCLUDING A RESPECT FOR ALL FAMILIES AND CULTURES.

Welcome to Círculo de Amigos Child Care Center!

At Círculo de Amigos Child Care Center we believe in offering a high quality, state of the art childcare center with a home-like atmosphere in which children experience rich and meaningful learning experiences through nature.

Our Spanish immersion program helps children be successful in our increasingly multicultural society.

The school environment has comfortable and home-like surroundings that engage and challenge children of different ages and abilities.

Close consideration is given to health and safety issues.

We provide the most healthy and nutritious food possible.

We incorporate many environmentally friendly designs and practices using as reference the “Go Green Rating Scale” and the “Nature Explore” guidelines.

Many green concepts such as recycling, the use of renewal energy, and non-toxic cleaning products are part of the center’s everyday activities.

We strive constantly to improve our practice in this area and also to teach the children the importance of being responsible to our planet.

What Our Clients Are Saying…

  • "Thinking about the patient, kind, and loving care our three children (one with ADHD and autism) received during their many years at Círculo de Amigos always brings a smile to my face and a flood of thankfulness to my heart. Círculo de Amigos is not just childcare; it is a community."

    Sara Bergen
  • "My wife and I visited several daycares in the area and chose Círculo De Amigos without a hesitation. Upon our first visit we felt an aura of warmth, love, and care from both the caregivers and the overall design and structure of the children's daily activities and surroundings. During our daily workday, my wife and I have no doubt that our two children are in the best hands and care possible."

  • "Soy madre de dos niñas que han estado atendiendo la guardería Círculo de Amigos desde hace 7 años. Me siento muy tranquila porque sé que los niños en la guardería están aprendiendo muchas cosas, les proporcionan una alimentación muy nutritiva y tienen un excelente cuidado por parte de las maestras, pero sobre todo me siento muy feliz por poder ser parte de lo que es esta GRAN FAMILIA DE CÍRCULO DE AMIGOS CHILD CARE"

    Blanca Beltrán
  • "Círculo de Amigos is everything we had hoped for in a daycare, and much more. There is a sense of family that makes us comfortable leaving our toddler there. We know that she won't just get basic care...she'll get intellectual stimulation, physical exercise, healthy food and warm, loving care from providers who clearly love what they do. We feel lucky to have found Círculo!"
