About this event

Connect with and hear from parents, early childhood care and education professionals, advocates, agencies and lawmakers. Together, we’ll explore pathways to improve access to high quality early learning opportunities and foster a strong, equitable future for Minnesota.

Learn what parents and childcare providers want and need during the 2022 legislative session. We know there is a sense of urgency this session—with a strong focus on equity, and a renewed hope for strong bi-partisan commitment to advancing and supporting high-quality early childhood care and education.

Engage in critical discussions around equity and policies focused on improving outcomes for our state’s young children. With significant interest from all sides of our government, this year presents an exciting opportunity to address the importance of early childhood development and opportunities to support families educationally and economically.

This year’s theme focuses on the belief that Empowered Families will Ensure MN’s Future!
