Wooddale Academy was formed in 1970 to serve the community and its families. At Wooddale, parents find a caring Christian environment to enhance their children’s emotional, cognitive, physical, social and spiritual growth.
It is a place where children can feel secure while developing confidence, self-esteem and the skills necessary to get them ready for Kindergarten. Wooddale Academy provides a balanced program of creative play, structured learning time, and physical activity. Through exploration and discovery, the children learn from each other and from the guidance of skilled, dedicated teachers. Wooddale Academy is licensed for 120 children at any time by the Minnesota Department of Human Services and complies with their standards as well as being accredited with the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC). Questions regarding licensing can be directed to the licensing division of the Department of Human Services, 651-296-3971.
We are licensed to meet the needs of children ages 3-5. The preschool classroom ratios are 1 to 10. Children must be three by September 1 and toilet trained without the use of pull-ups to enroll. We welcome children of any race, creed or religious affiliation. We will enroll special needs children if we can safely and adequately meet the child’s needs through an individually developed care plan stipulated by Rule 3.
