FAMILY AND CHILD DEVELOPMENT CENTER: A program offered at Northside High School that can help high school students remain in school and receive child care for their children 6 weeks through 4 years on the school campus. To participate in this program, a student must enroll at Northside High and register to take the Child Development/Parenting classes. The program is also available to employees of Northside High School.

Our Mission build healthy families by addressing the specific needs of the entire family (teen parent and child) developing a continuum of life skills and literacy skills assisting teen parents to remain in school and obtain a High School Diploma, a High School Equivalency Diploma or a Certificate of Achievement. We are committed to providing quality child care focused on providing infants and toddlers of teen parents with the best start possible. Our curriculum is based upon developmentally appropriate practices to ensure that children enter Kindergarten ready to learn.
