Early Childhood Education

Minneapolis Public Schools has many learning resources and opportunities for young children, their families and caregivers. These resources serve children with a range of needs and help prepare them for kindergarten and beyond.

Early Childhood Education staff seek to enhance early childhood education, outreach and partnerships in order to support and promote the healthy growth and development of children birth to age seven to ensure school readiness and schools success.

The State of Minesota has just revised and expanded the Early Childhood Indicators of Progress (ECIPs):

The Early Childhood Indicators of Progress (ECIPs) are Minnesota’s early learning standards. Revised and expanded in 2016, these standards are a framework for a common set of developmentally appropriate expectations for children ages birth to kindergarten, within a context of shared responsibility for helping children meet these expectations. The ECIPs are aligned to the Minnesota Kindergarten Academic Standards.
