Annunciation Preschool

Annunciation's Discovery Center

Annunciation's Discovery Center preschool serves children ages 33 months-5 years (who are toilet trained) and offers a 5 day per week program with full and part-time options.  We also offer wrap around care for before and after school along with our summer program.  We offer 2 classroom options:  our Discovery Room is for our youngest learners ages 3-4 years old and our Kinderstart Room is for 4/5 year olds who are typically in their final year of preschool prior to starting Kindergarten. 

Annunciation's Discovery Center, located in the heart of South Minneapolis, was added to serve the growing needs of young families in that area. This school partnership provides a unique opportunity to “buddy” with students in the elementary school and benefit from their wonderful facilities.
