We're Listening:

Early Learning in Minnesota

Early in November, staff of the Minnesota Departments of Education, Health, Human Services and the Minnesota Children's Cabinet held seven Early Learning Listening Sessions throughout the state. From Owatonna to Bemidji, over 650 people gathered to discuss the future of early learning in Minnesota. A wide range of ideas and opinions were shared, and this information is already being discussed among state agencies as well as the Governor's Office.

Now, we are conducting a survey to ensure we have captured the thoughts of every stakeholder in Minnesota who wants to be heard on this important topic. You will find the link to the survey at the end of this email - the questions provided here are the same as the ones that were discussed at the listening sessions. The answer options were crafted based around what was heard throughout the state at the sessions. The survey is available in English, Spanish, Somali, Hmong and Vietnamese.

We want to hear from you. If you attended a listening session, please complete the survey to reinforce your thoughts and share anything you may have thought of after you left. If you weren't able to attend a listening session, please complete the survey to share your thoughts. It should take about five to seven minutes to complete. We also encourage you to share this survey with others whom you believe would like to be heard. Thank you so much for your participation and your engagement in this important discussion. Your advocacy on behalf of Minnesota's children is greatly appreciated!
