Northside Child Development Center

Catholic Charities’ Northside Child Development Center is a North Minneapolis learning center for children six-weeks to 12-years-old. Northside Child Development Center provides early education, preschool, school readiness and school reinforcement experiences, all designed to combat the negative impact poverty can have on children.

To strengthen the family, Northside Child Development Center provides family-focused events, parent education, parent support groups and extensive family visiting. Individual family service plans are developed during home visits to identify and respond to barriers that may interfere with parents’ efforts to work and care for their children.
