New Early Childhood Center to open in Blaine

outside of Blaine Early Childhood Center(6/15/23) The Blaine Early Childhood Center is on track to open at the beginning of the 2023-24 school year. The inside of the building and the playground are currently being renovated to accommodate multiple programs.

Anoka-Hennepin Schools purchased the building in 2022 to provide additional early childhood services to residents on the east end of the school district.

“This will impact a lot of families because we did not have an early learning facility in this area until now,” said Knighton. “We are excited to be able to serve children in the community where they live.”

The building is located at 13001 Central Ave. NE in Blaine.
