We’ve been with YBR for over two years with both of our boys, and we can’t recommend it enough. We originally chose it because of the facility (you’ve got to check out the gym - so great). But we quickly realized how special each one of the staff members is, too. I have seen my almost-3-year-old grow into a kind, generous, happy toddler - in no small part due to the amazing teachers he’s had at YBR. In addition to the emotional intelligence piece, which I value the most, our son is counting, learning Spanish, beginning to write his name, and has a voracious appetite for books. And when we had our second son in November. I knew we’d be leaving him with a second family here when I returned to work from maternity leave. YBR is amazing. I can’t imagine our lives without it!

We love this center for our 1.5 year old son. He is met with a smile from his teacher each morning. There is a lot of structure and great communication through their app on all of the daily activities.

We've been taking our son here full time for a year and a half. It is a reliable center, we love that we can do an early drop off if needed. The communication is great with the Daily Connect app you get notifications all day on what they are up to. It is right about in the middle for pricing from what we saw when we were searching.

Our son has been at this daycare for 8 months and we couldn't be happier! We always get updates on the app throughout the day on how his day is going including pictures. They are very flexible with when we drop off and pick up. I have found they are great with communication and answering any questions we have! The new director is also awesome!

Our family was relocated from another state to Minnesota and we had a short timeline to find a daycare for our three children (which can be overwhelming to find spots for all three in one location). From day one Yellow Brick Road was there to help us find spots, gave a tour, answered all of our questions, created a transition plan for each of our children post move and just made one piece of our relocation easier if not, check marked. We love the staff at Maple Grove. They are warm, inviting, care for each of their kiddos (you can just hear it in their voices at pick up when they summarize each of their days), and they want their kids to be the best that they can be. We’ve heard nothing but words of promise and encouragement as our children develop at their center.

My son has been attending YBR - Minnetonka for just over a year now. He started when he was 4 months old and all the teachers have been wonderful. He's learning so much each day and seems to really enjoy his days at school (even though he can't tell me yet :)) They taught him sign language and they do so many crafts. I attribute many of his major advancements to what he's taught at YBR. Highly recommend this daycare!

We started at YBR a year and a half ago and have been entirely thrilled with the care, development, and learning of our child. Our teachers know our child well and make plans for his needs every day. He loves his time at YBR and we’d recommend it to anyone!

YBR has been a great transition for my son from an in home daycare to a center. He loves the friends he has made and he loves his teachers. The introduction to Spanish is great and he is excited to take it further to a Spanish immersion kindergarten later this year. The new management has definitely made a huge difference and I am very happy with his care!

My 5yo daughter, Mia, started attending Pre-K at YBR in Maple Grove last July 2019 when she was 4. I can’t say enough about the team of caring individuals that teach and take care of my daughter Mia. Mia is very smart and has big emotions that she often struggles with behaviorally. The staff at YBR, Ms. Meagan, Ms. Nicole, Ms. Kayla, have really helped my daughter to deal with her emotions in a kind and caring way and offer support to my husband and I when needed. The staff use up to date gentle childhood techniques along with positive reinforcement. The staff are also great with communication. I am always up to date about any concerns or victories regarding Mia. The daily connect is also a huge bonus that my husband and I enjoy. We always know what she is up to! She has so much fun with all the activities she gets to do and all the fun things she gets to learn. Because of this genuine care from her teachers and support staff I have seen Mia grow emotionally and developmentally in all the ways I would hope for. I would recommend YBR to anyone looking for something more for their preschoolers or Pre-K'ers.

My son Wyatt has been attending Yellowbrick Road Minnetonka for 2 1/2 years! He enjoys going to daycare everyday! He loves all of his teachers and always has a blast when he is there. I was very impressed with how much he has learned while being there. He's even been taught Spanish and can recite the alphabet in Spanish! Yellowbrick has been so helpful with my son and with all his bus transfers to and from his preschool. I really appreciate all that they do for my son and would recommend Yellowbrick Road to anyone! :)
