Giving+Together: Early Childhood Education

The first three years of a child’s life provide the necessary building blocks for educational achievement, economic productivity, healthy lives and stronger communities. This period ensures a strong foundation for future development, and it is essential that parents, caregivers, practitioners and policymakers stay informed about how to support children and families during this critical stage.

Representatives from Think Small, West Central Initiative, Children’s Defense Fund Minnesota and Montessori American Indian Childcare Center joined us to share how they advocate for early childhood education in the communities they serve.
