EARLY CHILDHOOD EDUCATION

Preparing children for
kindergarten and beyond 

MARY T. WELLCOME
CHILD DEVELOPMENT CENTER

Our community-based early childhood education center provides comprehensive high-quality services to children ages 16 months to five years old.

In three developmentally appropriate classrooms, we provide learning to foster cognitive, physical, social, and emotional development. Our low staff-to-child ratio allows teachers to get to know the students and their families and partner in each child’s development. This program is made accessible to the community through low-cost tuition, scholarships, and assistance.

Youth development 

Helping school-aged children stay on track 

Through the use of mentorship, goal setting for success, fun incentives, and referrals for families needing assistance, our truancy diversion program helps kids in kindergarten through eighth grade stay in school. This is a collaborative effort with the Minneapolis Public Schools and the Hennepin County Attorney’s Office.

HOPE FOR YOUTH

Our diversion program teaches teens how to be better decision makers, increase their confidence, and create and maintain healthy relationships. This program is open to boys ages 12-17 who have had their first contact with law enforcement.

Adult empowerment

Helping adults improve their lives and relationships. 

Hope for Adults

We empower women and men to advocate for themselves and learn conflict and stress management skills. Using asset-based techniques, support group participants develop a strong foundation and create support systems to meet life’s challenges. Our anger management and domestic violence programs are designed to help people live safely.

Additional Programs

Family Engagement & Resource Center

Our new one-stop community resource center connects people to the help they need wherever they are on their journey. In this center, community members benefit from holistic resource navigation support for housing, employment, mental health, transportation, parenting, and more.

CAMP KATHARINE PARSONS

Reopening soon, our 106-acre camp located in northeast Carver County will provide environmental education and activities to inner-city youth — including an engaging curriculum, outdoor recreation, conservation efforts, and STEM-based projects.
