Next Best Thing to Mom

Preschool in Cambridge, MN 55008

NBTTM has been serving the Cambridge, and surrounding communities for many, many years. My husband (Mike Peno) and I purchased the childcare center in July 1999 and have proudly helped hundreds of families care for their children over the years.

We live just a few minutes from the center on an 80 acre farm and have three girls, Brandi, Ashley and Courtnie. In our spare time we enjoy camping, four-wheeling and just enjoying time with our family and friends.

We strive for the most nurturing, loving and educational environment for your children. Our goal is to teach children valuable real life social skills and prepare them for school. We do many activities outside of the childcare center including field trips to places like; Como Zoo, movie theatre, bowling, underwater world, pickle factory, library and a variety of other exciting and engaging places.

We also have fun activities at the center aside from our regular curriculum like Petting Zoo, Magicians and other entertaining events.

We have age appropriate curriculum for the children developed by each of the Head Teachers in the rooms. Reading and art projects are a few of the activities in the infant room and the toddlers enjoy circle time to learn numbers, ABC’s, colors, songs and reading. The preschool room works on similar activities including weather, American Sign Language (ASL) and computer time. Our Pandas work on Kindergarten readiness skills as well as ASL, Spanish and other real world skills.
