Next Best Thing To Mom

Phone: (763) 689-3915 | 390 Opportunity Blvd N. Cambridge, Minnesota 55008

We are open from 5:30 am to 6:00 pm Monday through Friday

Your child's needs are very important to us and we will make every effort to keep them happy as they grow physically, socially, intellectually and emotionally. We have established a learning program that includes exploring the world of letters, colors, shapes, science, creative arts, crafts, cooking and Much More!

A learning environment is a great start for your child and we also understand that children need free play for self-expression. These supervised times will also be provided by our qualified staff who will grow to know your child and provide compassion and understanding.

We also understand that children need free play for self-expression. These supervised times will also be provided by our qualified staff who will grow to know your child and provide compassion and understanding.

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.

Next Best Thing To Mom is truly more than just a childcare center. It is a place where loving and learning go hand in hand.

We hope you will stop in, meet the staff and say (hello) to everyone.

Hello Parents!

Welcome to Next Best Thing To Mom Childcare Center. My name is Kimberly Peno and I am the Co-owner and Director of the center. 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 enjoy time with our family and friends.
