About Us

Early childhood is an important time in every child’s life. Experiences during the first five years of a child’s life provide the foundation for success in school and chart a course for future success.


The Wadena County Early Childhood Coalition is a collaboration of community members and organizations who share our mission.


Currently, our community influenced strategic plan is focused on ensuring the best start for children birth to age 5, empowering and supporting families and providing educational opportunities for early learning providers. To do this, we engage individuals and organizations to act, while mobilizing resources, expertise and funding.


Every child is nurtured by members of this community. Every parent knows where to go for support and assistance. We strive to support early care and quality education in the first years.


All children will enter school healthy, confident and ready to succeed.
