Welcome to Southside Child Development Center

Reaching Higher for Quality Early Learning

Welcome to the Southside Child Development Center. We are at 3400 Dupont Ave. South, Minneapolis, MN 55408.

Our mission is “to give children a safe, fun, healthy, and caring place to be. We want to create an environment where children and families feel welcome and trust our program will have their child’s interest at heart.”

We provide day care for children 2 months old to 12 years old. Our center is open from 6:00 AM-10:00 PM Monday through Saturday.

At Southside Child Development Center, our goal is for all the children in our care to have a fun day where they are learning and playing while making new friends. We want your child to feel like this is their 2nd home. We want them to feel safe and comfortable here. We will provide them with lots of love and attention along with lots of fun daily activities to help them learn and grow. We hope to teach the children to respect themselves and each other. We believe all children should have a safe and happy environment. We don’t allow hitting, biting, yelling, and name calling at any time.

Children will be encouraged through positive reinforcement to be nice to their friends. We will encourage all children to treat their friends and our center with respect. We try to provide a daily structured program with an emphasis on creative art. We also work on “getting ready for school” through our morning preschool program. Our program has daily craft, songs, stories, circle time and so much more. We enjoy being outside. If weather is acceptable, we will be outside at least an hour each day. We do a lot of fun activities each day and some of them can be messy (such as painting). So please send your child in play clothes.
