Pathways to Quality Early Learning

Commitment by

Think Small

In 2016, Think Small committed to support early childhood providers and parents in effectively preparing children for success in kindergarten. Think Small will serve 102 providers – specifically target providers of color, English Language Learner providers, and providers that are serving low-income and new immigrant communities – who are in need of high quality early learning improvement supports. Additionally, Think Small will engage 1,500 parents and their child care providers in a joint effort to enhance children’s early development and decrease the word gap in underserved communities by supporting the Minnesota Reading Corps; implementing the LENA Start program; and developing the Reminders for Readiness texting program that will give weekly prompts to parents for engaging their children in literacy-enhancing activities.
