Where the Path to Life is Laid One Yellow Brick at a Time.
“To put good humans into the world, and leave it better than we found it!”
We believe that every child is unique and will grow at their own pace. Our teachers spend time nurturing children’s strengths and encouraging them to reach new heights. YBR’s philosophical beliefs are based upon standards established by the National Association for the Education of Young Children, knowledge of child development, theories of child behavior, and acceptable best practices for educating young children. We are dedicated to helping your child grow at the pace that is right for them while always spending the time to nurture their strengths.

What We Offer!
Our Unique Benefits!
HOME-GROWN APPROACH – Yellow Brick Road was founded in Minnesota in 2006. We have since brought our expertise to the home states of our owners; Iowa and Nebraska! We take a home-grown approach at Yellow Brick Road because we understand the importance of understanding, collaborating with, and serving our local communities!
INTEREST and PLAY-BASED CURRICULUM – Our curriculum is centered around our students’ current interests! Rather than giving our teachers a list of topics to teach about, they pick topics that will hold their students’ attention! This approach allows our students to feel involved, heard, and excited about their academic and social-emotional success!
OUTDOOR LEARNING – Learning outdoors year-round can seem like a challenge in the Midwest! Our teachers are the experts when it comes to teaching their children outside, planning lessons rooted in nature, and exposing our students to new elements each season as they connect their lessons to the world around them!
ON-SITE ENRICHMENT PROGRAMS – Finding the time to work, take the kids to school, spend quality family time, complete chores, and attend enrichment programs requires a lot of time management from the parent’s perspective! Thankfully, we offer on-site programs to give our students the opportunities to pick up new skills and get involved during the time they spend at Yellow Brick Road! Take a look at the programs offered at your location to see the opportunities in store for your child!
