activities and programs for the wellbeing of our youngest children and their families

The 80+ Minnesota Early Childhood Initiative community coalitions in Greater Minnesota work tirelessly to help our youngest children get the very best start in life. They provide much-needed support for families and caregivers, too. The communities have compiled all of their activities and programs into this handy searchable database, which we call Promising Strategies.  

We hope this database will be a source of inspiration and idea-generation for you to help create quality care and education opportunities for the young children in your community! The database is updated semi-annually, so keep checking back for new ideas.
