    Stillwater, MN. The Greater Stillwater Chamber of Commerce celebrated a 10 year Anniversary for Smart Start Childcare and Learning Center, an independent, locally owned and operated boutique childcare center on October 5th, 2023.  The event took place at 14480 60th Street N in Stillwater, MN with owner Gina Anderson and Miss Oksana, the Director of the school as well as many other staff and families that have been touched by the center.

    Smart Start’s mission statement is to enhance the traditional childcare experience through education, nutrition, exercise, relaxation, illness reduction and prevention, and creative projects that promote a happy, healthy and secure learning environment. This is precisely what makes Smart Start different, and perhaps why Gina and Smart Start have won best childcare, best daycare and best preschool in the St. Croix Valley six times in ten years, with plenty of competition.  

    Smart Start is one of very few centers in the state that offers an outdoor classroom, which encourages children to explore and initiate their own activities. This allows for varied activities of messy and even quiet play.  The outdoor classroom provides an area for natural learning through the growing and care of many different types of flowers and vegetables that the children have helped to plant and harvest.

    Health and wellness is another area that sets Smart Start apart from other centers.  Healthy snacks, significant outdoor time, a large indoor gym and many health and wellness enhancing activities are key components to their curriculum.

    Smart Start offers large, home-like classrooms with low child/teacher ratios.  Parents are welcome and encouraged to visit, and the teachers are passionate about the children.  If you are looking for childcare, give Smart Start Childcare and Learning Center a call today!
