The Minnesota Child Trends office opened in 2000 and is located in downtown Minneapolis. Minnesota staff primarily focus on early childhood research, and the office houses both full-time staff and interns who partner with Minnesota state agencies, the University of Minnesota, foundations, school districts, and local organizations. Our collaborative work on behalf of the public and private sectors involves conducting evaluations, research studies, and policy analyses, and serving as expert consultants and technical assistance providers, both in Minnesota and nationwide. For example, the Minnesota office’s long-term research partnership with the Minnesota Department of Human Services has contributed to state policies that govern child care subsidies, professional development for the early care and education workforce, supports for the quality of early care and education programs, and families’ access to high-quality care.
