Welcome to Blake

Blake is AWESOME! We wouldn't have our kids anywhere else. We're a multinational family and we have the opportunity to raise our kids on several different continents. We stay in Minneapolis because of Blake.

    Pre-Kindergarten at Blake

    In Pre-K at Blake, we see tremendous potential in young children. We appreciate children’s energy and curiosity and view these as fuel for life and learning, and we believe a classroom for young children should be both a launch pad and laboratory. Visit our Pre-K teacher pages (Ms. Loftus, Ms. Esser, Mr. Andrews) to get a glimpse of our daily explorations.
