Our Mission

Koala Bear Child Care offers quality care and early childhood education and experiences in a faith-based environment. In partnership with Lake Minnetonka Shores we offer each child the opportunity “to create smiles in  the eyes of the residents” through daily visits and intergenerational activities in a loving and nurturing environment.

Our Philosopy

We accept the responsibility to provide a safe and nurturing environment for your child(ren).  It is the desire of our staff to be a part of your child’s development and assure you that your child receives quality care and learning during these early years of their life. We consult with you and share your child’s day. As a result, we strive for your child’s success in their growth and development with continued respect to the families, which we serve. 

Our History

Koala Bear Child Care has been caring for children since 1988. Through the years we have enhanced the value of our intergenerational program for children, residents, and staff.

Koala Bear Child Care is licensed by the State of Minnesota Human Services Department. We meet and strive to exceed the standards set by the Division of Licensing.
