Daily intergenerational activities set our program apart from more traditional child care programs. Many children today don’t live near their grandparents and don’t have that valuable connection with older people. Our program helps build healthy relationships between the young and old.
Both the child care teachers and campus staff supervise these shared activities:
- Story time
- Chapel time
- Outdoor playtime
- Arts and crafts
- Special events and parties
At Ebenezer, your children are cared for by staff experienced in early childhood education and certified in first aid and CPR. Parents receive daily updates on their child, formal conferences twice a year and a monthly newsletter of our activities.
How to enroll at Ebenezer Ridges Child Care
The first step is to meet one-on-one with parents to discuss the needs of the child and the family. Enrollment information, immunization, behavior and emergency forms are to be completed before a child can attend.
A health care summary for your child must be signed by a physician and returned to the center within 30 days of enrollment.
When a child is accepted into the program, there is a one-time, non-refundable registration fee of $75 per family and deposit equal to one week of tuition, which is applicable to the first week of tuition. These fees guarantee enrollment by holding a spot for your child in our program for up to 60 days.
Tuition cost per week - 2012
*Part-time may be available for a limited number of spots. Please call 952-898-3576 for more information. Families with 2 or more children receive a discounted rate. Fairview employees receive a discount. Call for details.

Nutrition, health and safety
Tuition includes breakfast, hot lunch and an afternoon snack that meet the requirements of the U.S. Department of Agriculture Child and Adult Nutrition Program. Our menu is reviewed and approved by a licensed dietitian and meals are prepared on-site. We also provide an iron-fortified infant formula.
We make health checks daily and parents are contacted if a child is showing signs of a contagious illness. The ill child will rest in a quiet place until picked up. Once a parent has been contacted, they must pick their sick child up within one hour. A child sent home due to illness must remain home the entire next day and until they are well enough to participate in the daily activities of class. With written authorization from your child’s physician, we will administer prescription medication.
For your child’s safety, we have security cameras in hallways and entrances and a secure entry and exit. Every classroom also has a secured door to our fenced playground/patio.
