SW Minneapolis

Create. Laugh. Learn.


Especially for Children is opening a new location in Southwest Minneapolis in late spring of 2023! The SW Minneapolis EFC, located in the King Field neighborhood at E 39th Street and Stevens Ave., is just three blocks off Nicollet Ave. S.


Along with high quality, play-based programming and dedicated and caring teaching staff, the center will feature a large indoor gym, an expansive and engaging nature-based playground, and access to a dynamic local park space. Newly remodeled classrooms will be filled with natural light, creating a bright and warm space for children to grow and thrive. The center has close access to convenient commuter paths and the nearby energy of the city but is tucked back into the neighborhood, providing a quiet and calm environment.
