Early Childhood

Kids these days: they’re changing the perception of kids these days.

Sometimes, it seems they’re all you hear about: the kids who aren’t ready for kindergarten; the families who aren’t ready to be families; the test scores that don’t add up.

In Carlton County, on the other hand, we’ve got scores of stories about kids who are beating those odds. Plus proof that our programs are working—from the delivery room to the classroom.

And it’s changing the way people think.


Lake Superior Initiative:  The Lake Superior Initiative is a capacity building grant to assist PECC with the development of both a revenue restructuring plan and marketing plan.  The initiative is designed to empower CHILD Network by helping them manage their programs effectively, train staff,  and work towards their mission in providing services to those in need through building leadership and sustainability.
