Our mission is to provide high quality child care that meets the needs of each child and family in a safe, educational, and caring environment. Our focus is to provide a stimulating early care and education experience, which promotes each child's social, emotional, intellectual and physical development.
We will offer technology in the form of I-pads, as well as interactive white boards. Within our indoor gym we will offer a fun, learning based and engaging equipment called BEAM by Eyeclick. What is BEAM you might ask.

Hello, my name is Brandie Folken. I am a mother of two grown boys, I married the love of my life and biggest supporter Chad in June of 2016. Together we have 6 children and 7 grandchildren. I have been in the family childcare business for 20 plus years. In 2015 I started my journey to go back to school. I started at Duluth Business University for my Business Management degree. However, they closed their doors before I could graduate. I was offered the opportunity to open our childcare center and switched my major. Therefore, I transferred to Rasmussen College to start my Associates of Applied Science-Early Childhood Education. I Graduated in June 2019. With the help of our staff I feel honored to be able to assist the children in our communities to offer them a safe, educational learning environment with a twist of fun.
Hi, My name is Brandie Peterson, I am the assistant director here at Brandie’s Little Bears Learning Center. I graduated from Rasmussen College studying my Associates of Applied Science-Early Childhood Education Degree. I’m a mother of 4, I’ve lived on the iron range my whole life and I’m pleased to offer another child care service in our needed area! We are ready to help your children grow and learn new things every day.
Our childcare staff will engage your children with the interactive STEAM curriculum. This is a project based curriculum that allows children to explore and use their imagination as they learn and grow. This curriculum will assist the children with their physical, intellectual, language, social and emotional development with a twist of fun!
We will be centrally located just off of Highway 53 and near the Mesabi Community College, Eveleth campus. Our hours of operation will be from 6:30 am until 5:30 p.m.
Our facility is 2-star parent aware rated soon to be 3-star rated by Parent Aware of Minnesota. Our program works with a coach to identify goals and purchases that will help our programs succeed in improving our quality as we work toward achieving a higher Star Rating.
