Office of Child Care Community Partnerships

Office of Child Care Community Partnership

Accessible quality child care is critical for not only strong child development, but also the economic stability of families and communities. Investing in Minnesota's communities opens doors for families, employers, businesses and community organizations that need child care to thrive, so their community and economy can thrive. The Office of Child Care Community Partnerships supports and promotes the expansion of quality child care statewide and accessibility to child care for underserved communities – because Minnesota's families deserve equal access to high quality, affordable child care and early education.

If you are a parent seeking child care, please visit the Minnesota Department of Human Services website for additional resources.
