Early Childhood Education and Preschool in Edina

Welcome To The Berry Patch

For The Love Of Learning

As parents of a young child, we know that your child’s first experience of school is very important to you and that finding the right fit for your family can be challenging. We also know how important it is to you that this experience leads your child toward a love of learning as they journey to Kindergarten.

As you navigate these early years, The Berry Patch team is committed to coming alongside you and your family.

We believe—and research supports—that the best way to develop a love of learning is to create unique learning experiences that spark a child’s natural curiosity and enthusiasm.

Education during these important developmental years should enrich the whole child—mind, body, and spirit. This is why we offer a curated curriculum that also includes Music Together for Schools, Spanish Language and Culture Classes, in-house and community-based field trips, and Children Serving Others- our service learning program.
