About Our Rochester MN Daycare Center

Family Owned and Operated

From a mother and grandmother's perspective, Discover Magical Moments is one of the region’s top Daycare providers. We have flexible drop off and pick up times for parents and offer full and part time child care from 6 weeks to 5 years of age. We hire only the most qualified staff who come to us with years of experience and a wide range of education and expertise. Most staff have been with us for almost 20 years. New staff members have a mandatory 6 month training/mentoring program to complete prior to becoming a permanent staff member.
