Early Childhood development gaining traction in state

February 1, 2014
By Tim Penny - President/CEO, Southern Minnesota Initiative Foundation , The Journal

Exciting gains have been made in teh area of early childhood developmet in Minnesota recently. New studies show that 72% of children are now ready to learn when they enter kindergarten, up from 60% only a few years ago. This means that work being done by schools, communities, and early childhood providers is producing positive results. We at Southern Minnesota Initiative Foundation (SMIF) are proud to be a part of these efforts which are making a difference in the lives of children in our region.
