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.

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.


"Aside from NECDC's proven success with regard to kindergarten readiness, its superior facility, and well-trained staff dedicated to each child's success, what truly sets NECDC apart is the support that parents and families receive. The community setting also allows for young learners to experience intergenerational friendships with the elderly and high school students, along with many community partners NECDC so well utilizes. These lessons go well beyond the classroom. We are extremely fortunate to have received grant funding for a period while both of our children were enrolled to offset the burden of 2 children in care. I would recommend this program to anyone."
