A model of neighbourhood-based holistic early childhood centres that provide children and families with better opportunities for educational success by prioritising the baby’s point of view, parent and community engagement. Facilities are one-stop centers in which child and family services are interrelated and of equal importance, responding to their cultures, values and needs.
- 100% of parents are engaged—a far higher rate of parent engagement than many programmes serving communities in crisis.
- Nine parents of Baby’s Space child participants are employed at the project.
- 100% of 3 to 5 year old participants have been assessed as developmentally on track for success in kindergarten and beyond. This is double the average for Minneapolis where only 50% of children are ready for kindergarten when they start school.
