“Our mission is to advance quality care and education of children in their crucial early years.”
Inside our Report to the Community, you will find highlights from the past fiscal year, along with photos that capture all of the ways we are working hard to help create those brighter futures, by preparing early childhood providers, strengthening Minnesota families, and by catalyzing change with our policy and advocacy efforts.
Our annual report also shares our financial position as of June 30, 2017, and recognizes the generous contributions made by our volunteers and donors to make our work possible.
In the past year, Think Small has provided 1,100 trainings and over 3,200 hours of one-on-one coaching services to 15,500 child care providers in Minnesota. We have strengthened over 9,800 families by connecting them to quality early care and education through financial support, resources and referrals. And we have provided essential early learning resources to countless more through our Early Childhood library and through the distribution of more than 200,000 early childhood products around the world via our award-winning Redleaf Press.
