What Minnesota Can Do

The path to Minnesota’s future prosperity begins with the well-being of all our children. That’s why it’s important to make smart investments in early childhood development and lay the foundation for future success in school, career and life. Learn more about Minnesota's Future.

The Minnesota's Future agenda calls on the next governor to provide leadership on early childhood by adopting these proven investments:

  • Offer voluntary home visits and parent education to strengthen families and promote positive parent-child interaction, so children are safe, healthy and ready for success in school and in life.
  • Secure significant resources to ensure all children have the opportunity to receive high quality early learning services.
  • Sustain implementation of an effective Parent Aware infrastructure that affirms our commitment to quality, accessible and accountable early care and education.
  • Support community partnerships to coordinate and leverage investments in children's and families' success.
  • Encourage coordinated and sustained commitment on the part of state and local governments to strengthen our statewide system of child development and early learning services.
Minnesota's Future was developed by an alliance of early childhood organizations that promotes policy changes to reform early care and education programs, realign public resources to meet quality standards and provide needed resources to build quality and increase access to high quality early learning experiences.
