         Children learn as they play.           Most importantly, in play children         learn how to learn.

Licensed Family ChildCare


Welcome to Half-Pint Hide-0ut

We are a licensed family childcare located in the SW neighborhood of Grand Rapids, MN.  Our approach is child-centered and child-directed, with a Christian-based philosophy.  I believe that a child’s early experiences enrich and stimulate future growth. Children deserve to be treated and respected as individuals in an environment that welcomes reason, exploration, question, and imagination. I respect each child’s need for love, security, acceptance, warmth and stimulation.
