Northeast Child Development Center (NECDC) provides children six weeks through the age of five with quality early education and enrichment activities that promote growth and development while preparing children for kindergarten. 

NECDC is a Parent Aware 4-star rated program. We have been licensed by the Minnesota Department of Human Services since 1948 and accredited by the National Association for the Education of Young Children since 1990.

The curriculum at NECDC has a strong focus on literacy and numbers. In addition, STEAM (science, technology, education, arts and math) is a growing component within that curriculum.

NECDC strives to make classrooms a welcoming place for both children and their families, with home-like touches. In our multicultural atmosphere, we embrace differences among our students as well as their caretakers.

Parents receive ongoing support and information from teachers on developmental milestones and achievements, health and safety, nutrition and exercise, kindergarten preparation, and more.

We are known for our ability to provide individualized attention in addressing challenging behaviors. Early developmental screenings as well as occupational, physical, and speech therapy services are available on-site from Health Dimensions Rehabilitation Services.

We are also registered with the Child Care Assistance Program (CCAP) to provide care for children from families with low income.

Both classrooms and playground are for children to freely explore and experience, the only limitation being one of safety.

Our staff to child ratios of 1:3 for infants, 1:6 for toddlers, and 1:8 for preschoolers ensure supervision at all times.
