Each classroom Teacher, Assistant Teacher, and Aide incorporate learning outcomes into their monthly curriculums, which is then reviewed by the Director of the Center prior to being put into place for the month. Our learning outcomes include a wide variety of learning activities constructed from the NAEYC guidelines, Minnesota Early Learning Standards, and Creative Curriculums. Parents are encouraged to visit at any time, share their input on daily classroom activities, as well as take part in our many special events throughout the year such as: lunch with the children, field trips, picnics, Holiday parties, Parent Aware, etc.
We do not have a cleaning service hired, that way we are sure that the cleaning is done to our standards. Our standards are higher than are required by the State of MN licensing. We have found this has greatly cut down on our illnesses throughout the year. Both the Public Health Nurse and our Nurse Consultant have praised us on the low numbers of illnesses we have in a year’s time. We believe it is due to our staff going above and beyond our cleaning and sanitizing procedures we have in place. All staff members are trained in each area of our health and safety policies and procedures along with our cleaning and sanitizing procedures annually.
“Dear DMM Staff,
Thank you so much for everything the past few years! Charlie & Reilly have thrived in their time with you. Your care and patience with them, on their good days and bad ones, have helped them learn and grow so much. We felt we were doing a really good thing by taking them to your center. I know we will never find another place with caregivers like you when we move to CA and we will miss you all so much!! The families at DMM are so lucky to have you. Keep doing exactly what you are doing! Thanks for everything!”
