About the Provider

Description: Once upon a time, nearly 40 years ago, a very special place for children opened it's doors in South Minneapolis. The roots of Anew Dimension go back as far as 1969, when a childcare program was started in Joyce Church in South Minneapolis. In 1991 we became a United Way agency funded by Success by Six. In 1992 Anew Dimension became a Strong Beginnings site for Hennepin County. In 1995, we purchased and renovated our current space at 1819 Minnehaha Avenue South.

In 2001 Anew Dimension built a theatre space within the center, to house a theatre arts program called "Imagination Theatre". The original stories and music developed for this space are designed to stimulate the imaginations of children, influence them positively in their moral and social development, and foster an early appreciation for all aspects of the arts.

Today the childcare program serves 78 children, while the theatre reaches thousands. Anew Dimension is touching children's lives throughout the metro area.
