MINNEMINDS – OUR CHILDREN OUR FUTURE

Join us for discussions on the future of early childhood with Minnesota’s next governor!

  • Hosted at People Serving People – Center of Excellence

2400 Park Ave. South, Minneapolis 55404

Minnesota has made significant progress in investing in our state’s earliest learners, but much work remains. Looking ahead, a new Governor in 2018 will play a pivotal role in deciding the direction and importance of early childhood care and education in Minnesota.

MinneMinds is excited to announce the GOP candidates for governor, to discuss their plans for addressing early childhood issues in our state. These conversations are a great way for advocates, parents, providers, and any Minnesotan interested in the future of early childhood to hear about the priorities of leading candidates for governor.

The conversation will focus on ensuring Minnesota’s early childhood care and education opportunities are multi-generational, high-quality, equitable, and accessible for children and families with the highest needs. Additional discussion will focus on the unique early childcare issues related to workforce and economic development.
