Program Areas and Services

In this Center in the heart of downtown, children enjoy two rooftop play areas and have great opportunities to explore their urban environment. Walks to area parks are common in warm weather. When it’s too cold to go out, children play in our gym and indoor play area, and swim in the pool. Our Nicollet Mall location provides easy access to many bus routes and other public transportation options.

The Downtown Center received a Parent Aware 4-star rating (Parent Aware’s highest rating) and has NAEYC Accreditation.
