If you'll be working in Minneapolis and don't mind a 15-20 min commute then I'd highly recommend the Western Suburbs. Minnetonka & Wayzata have award winning school districts. Edina is also another wonderful area with great schools. School district says the most about a neighborhood.
Best of luck!
If you have not selected a home by now, kindly let me know. We have a beautiful, private executive home in Minnetonka that is available for lease within your time frame. I am happy to send you detailed photos and information about the excellent schools in the Minnetonka school district. You can reach me via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you are considering buying a home in Minnesota instead of renting I am happy to help you find the best loan options available for you. I still have low down loan options .
If you need any help founding out if you can qualify for a home mortgage please feel free to contact me. I am happy to help guide you through the mortgage process.

You will find that MPLS/St. Paul and the surrounding suburbs are for the most part all great for schools. It is something we are known for, and the twin cities is a huge metro (we do after all have 2 cities).
So truth is I think in order to narrow down your search I would need to know more. What type of commute for work? Suburb or city? what type of home do you want? budget? amenities for neighborhood besides daycare? There is just a lot of questions to answer. If you want to consider the north metro where I work feel free to contact me. Mounds View School district is considered one of the best public schools, and the homes in Shoreview, New Brighton, Arden Hills, parts of Roseville/Vadnais Heights make up the big chunk of it. I listed the cities so you can google map them for a reference point.
A lot cheaper housing than the SW schools but I feel is much nicer. Best part is you are 15 minutes from either downtown, and daycare is no problem.
Just like I work the North side each Realtor specializes in different areas, and not all of us work with rentals. You need something fast, and that means you need someone in Minnesota NOW helping you. Feel free to check out our profiles here on Trulia to get an idea of where we work and the specialties we do. There is also testimonials from past clients on our profiles. Simply put if there are no testimonials I would not reccomend using that Realtor.
Good Luck Ms. Jean Lewis!!!
Just wondering, are you thinking of purchasing or renting? That will make a difference on the agents that are able to help you as some agents don't really work with renters.
Hopkins, Minnetonka, Wayzata, Edina, Mounds View all have notable school districts.
Of course it all depends on what YOU think is valuable in a school system. It's worth it for you to do your own research about this. Here are a few websites where you can do some comparisons.
I'm SOOO glad you asked about safety issues. It gives me an opportunity to talk about this subject again. The state of MN Dept. of Commerce prohibits agents from speaking about crime rates or safe neighborhoods vs. not safe neighborhoods. That's because it might be perceived that you are making choices based on what WE think is best rather than what YOU think is best! They don't want us to be steering you away or toward a neighborhood because of what WE think. It's what you think that's most important. I would do your research about that too, online so you are informed.
BUT, we can talk about market value ALL DAY LONG and tell you where the best investments are!
As for daycare/childcare facilities, there are wonderful organizations, pre-schools, daycare centers ALL OVER the Twin Cities. I'd say it's more important for you to feel comfortable with your commute and find the best facilities once you've determined where you want to live.
Let us know what else we can do for you!!

Good luck with your move. If you need a top agent to help you, let me know. Seller pays the commission in our market:)
