Kids Grow Riverwood opened in 2014 and shortly after we hired a loving, caring, patient, trustworthy and faithful young lady, Andrea Cline.  For the next three years she served our children, parents and her fellow employees with love and care.  Late in 2017 it was discovered that she had an aggressive form of cancer and just over a week later passed away.  Her legacy lives through us as we serve parents, children, churches and communities.


To honor her life and legacy we have started a non-profit organization, Kids Grow Cares.  Kids Grow Cares will exist to support employees of the child care industry, families and the communities we serve.


We have been offering scholarships for childcare workers to become teacher qualified.  With some changes to the State of Minnesota regulations that govern childcare, this is not as impactful as it once was.


We will be expanding our impact in 2021-22 beyond scholarships!  Look for more information in the coming months!
