Early Childhood Services

DID YOU KNOW: 95% of brain development occurs before the age of FIVE? 1

Early childhood matters! That is why the department created the Early Childhood Division in July 2021 to align and focus programs and resources on a key department priority: early childhood experiences.

DIVISION PURPOSE: To make a significant impact on North Dakota children and families by:

  • Helping children realize their potential through quality early childhood experiences,
  • Supporting the state's workforce needs with improved access to child care, and
  • Aligning programs for a maximum return on investment.
