Focus Area

The focus is to increase parents' and other caregivers' access to resources and information of what they need to do to help their children be ready for school


All Minneapolis children enter kindergarten ready to be successful in school.

Research & literature continues to grow in the field of early childhood. The growing body of work only continues to highlight the importance of this critical period of a person's life. And although this is happening, that doesn't always translate into more resources for parents & caretakers. The YCB will continue to grow this section of our website, so please check back often or follow us on social media. If there are contributions you would like to make, please email
