Most of our teachers have a two or a four year degree in Early Childhood Education, Elementary Education, psychology, sociology, or in another related field. We have found that there is simply no substitute for educated, dedicated teachers. We work very hard to maintain low staff turnover, and as a result we have a very low turnover of children. Twenty years of experience in the child care field has taught us that our staff makes all the difference!
Nicole Robbins, Owner and Founder

I started Peace of Mind in 1993, after graduating from the University of St. Thomas with a degree in Business Entrepreneurship. I knew more than anything that I wanted to be with children, and that by partnering with parents, we could create a unique place for children to grow and thrive. Peace of Mind has evolved over the years into a home away from home for so many children. I feel incredibly blessed to have this job that is truly amazing! To be given the opportunity to be a part of so many families lives in such a unique and personal way – is incredibly joyful. Our team is always looking for ways we can do more for parents, so that they can have what we aim to provide – Peace of Mind, while their kids are in our care.

Read below to learn what parents say about the unique qualities of Peace of Mind.

"Extraordinary; is the first word that comes to mind when we think of the care, teaching, and love that our daughters have experienced at Peace of Mind. We are truly amazed at what our daughters have learned, from sign language to Spanish, ABC's to 123's, sharing and caring for others - they have learned this and so much more. But most importantly, we truly know that our precious girls are loved and cared for by extraordinary people. There is nothing more that we need to see than our girls running to give their teachers hugs with open arms and smiles from ear to ear to know that Peace of Mind is the place for family."
