As part of the Aitkin School District #001 the Aitkin Children’s Center is conveniently located on the south side of Rippleside Elementary School. During the school year the Aitkin Children’s Center offers high quality early childhood programs for infants, toddlers, preschoolers, and their families.

Research has shown that high quality early childhood programs, such as those offered by the Center, have a positive impact on a child’s social and emotional development as well as their overall cognitive development.  This impact extends beyond preschool and into the early elementary grades.
