Northside Child Development Center
Northside is a unique early primary learning community of over 300 students and 40 staff members. The passionate, highly qualified staff provides dynamic, hands-on learning experiences and innovative opportunities. We believe that all students can and will learn, and that it is our collective responsibility to empower all children to create, discover, and apply knowledge in a diverse culture of collaboration, respect, and high expectations. To continuously meet the needs of our families, Northside provides Kinder-Connections, (transition into kindergarten) Great Start Readiness Program, Early Childhood Special Education and a Berrien RESA Autism Spectrum Disorder classroom.
Community relationships are also central to our success at Northside. We appreciate our many community classroom volunteers and community partnerships with organizations, such as Niles Community Gardens and Niles District Library. We provide training and materials for our local day care providers, through a partnership with the Childcare Resource Center (CCR) & Berrien Community Foundation (BCF). Our membership with the Great Start Collaborative and Berrien RESA are other county-wide resources we find valuable. These partners are actively and enthusiastically engaged as part of our school family year after year.
