Enduring Vision...Excellence in Care... Celebrating Civic League’s 90th Anniversary

This is such an exciting year to be shared with you all and the community! Civic League Day Nursery opened its doors in August of 1930 to “help meet the needs of working mothers.” Yes, in 2020 we are celebrating 90 years of excellence in educational childcare in the Rochester community. In fact, Civic League is the longest, continuously running non-profit childcare center in Minnesota! The incredible story of how it all started with the “Women’s Civic League” back in the late 1800’s and the women’s grass roots efforts to better the lives of Rochester’s citizens is amazing.
