Early Childhood Indicators of Progress
Within the realm of early childhood education, Minnesota has made it its mission to provide children with exceptional learning experiences. The early childhood years are an important time of rapid growth and learning, where children’s brains are developing more quickly at this time than any other. Not only are children learning about what they can do with their bodies, they are creating relationships with loved ones and are investigating how the world works as well as their place in it. This is a crucial time for children because of all of the complex brian development happening. So, it is imperative that children have access to early childhood education that meets and supports the needs of a growing brain.
In Minnesota, this set of expectations is called the Early Childhood Indicators of Progress: Minnesota’s Early Learning Standards (EIPs). The bedrock of this program is to ensure equitable access to a robust education across programs for all children. The areas of learning included in the EICPs are: physical and movement development, language, literacy and communications, mathematics, science, social systems, approaches to learning, the arts, and social and emotional development.
