About Us

Gaetz Child Care has been providing top quality, center based child care to the St. Cloud area for over 40 years. We are proud to still be family owned and operated. Our facilities are state licensed and always smoke free. We only close for the 6 major holidays: New Year's Day, Memorial Day, Independence Day, Labor Day, Thanksgiving, and Christmas Day.

Every one of our caring staff is CPR and First Aid certified and receive yearly training on Shaken Baby and SIDS.

We have two convenient locations; one on the north end of St. Cloud by the Tech college, and the other on the south side near SCSU. Our hours of operation are Monday through Friday, 6:30am to 6:00pm. To inquire about openings, please call the specific location in which you are interested.

We have three separate age groups for children: Infant, Toddler and Preschool. Our program for each group is designed to promote age and developmentally appropriate learning through a variety of activities.

Our program is run year-round and promotes life and school readiness through learning activities. We schedule field trips and guests throughout the year. For more detailed information about topics covered weekly and the typical day for a toddler or preschooler, please click on the links to the left.
