Parent Aware is an independent rating system to help parents select high-quality child care and early education.
Working in partnership with a number of other public and private organizations, Think Small helped develop and implement the three-year pilot for Parent Aware.More...
We provided in-depth consultation and technical assistance to early childhood providers to help them increase the quality of their programs. We administer grants to cover the costs associated with increasing program quality.
We also administered grants to participating programs to help them implement best practice standards.
In response to the success of the pilot program, the Governor approved a statewide rollout, and we are now helping to scale Parent Aware throughout Minnesota.
