Pine Pals is a state-licensed child care and learning center for ages

6 weeks to 5 years, with additional programs for school-age children up to age 12. Conveniently located on the southeast corner of Hannah Ave and 30th St NW in Bemidji, Minnesota, we offer a unique intergenerational program with our "grandfriends" and next-door neighbors at GoldPine Home. We are locally owned and operated, and our values focus on well-rounded, whole child learning that embraces nature, the arts, healthy movement, nutrition, social and emotional nourishment, family and community, and play-based pre-academics.  

Pine Pals offers a welcoming, high-quality option for your child care needs.
