Harmony Kids Learning Center celebrates Grand Opening

All across the county, parents struggle to find daycare for their kids, and Southeastern Minnesota is no different. The Harmony Kids Learning Center was built to fill that need in the community.

The center can serve up to 99 children. The rooms are divided between infants, toddlers, transition, preschoolers, and school age.

The children will be served a family style breakfast and lunch in their rooms along with two snacks. The kids will be expected to help set the table and then clear it after to teach them life skills and responsibility. The food will be home cooked by the food manager, using as many organic ingredients as possible.

Owner and Executive Director Umbelina Cremer ran a successful home daycare center in Texas and Minnesota for 25 years, so has the experience needed for the Harmony Kids Learning Center. She strongly believes it’s important for kids to play, explore, and get dirty sometimes. Part of Cremer’s passion is Montessori learning, and so there will be plenty of creative play for the children at the center. She will also be teaching Spanish classes for all ages levels.

The preschool will utilize the same curriculum used by Fillmore Central to ease the transition into kindergarten. Ages 3-5 will share a room, but the 4 and 5-year-olds will get an extra learning session each day. Cremer plans to have the preschoolers walk to Clara House to visit with the residents, with the goal of teaching the children that community is important.

The center’s school age care program will have weekly themes during the summer months, and kids will be paired with a younger child in a mentorship program.

The center has a wellness/nursing room that will be available for mothers to nurse their babies before they leave for work and for children who aren’t feeling well.

Parents will be issued a key fob to swipe when they enter the building. Their child’s information will then be sent directly to their classroom so the teacher can see how many kids are there that day. When a teacher takes a picture of the kids, it will automatically be sent to those kids’ parents on their smartphones. The system will allow the parents to stay in touch with what their kids are doing throughout the day.

The Harmony Kids Learning Center celebrated their grand opening on May 13 and 14 with a ribbon cutting ceremony on the 13th.
