Early Learning Digest…A Trusted Source of Information

The Minnesota Department of Education and the Working Family Resource Center (WFRC) have partnered to provide research-based information about the development of children from birth through age five. This collaboration is possible through two innovative initiatives of the Minnesota Department of Education: MN Parents Know and Help Me Grow.

The mission of the WFRC is as follows: Working Family Resource Center delivers high quality family and wellness education to employees where they work, in order to strengthen individuals, families and communities.  The Hopkins Family Center is sending this e-newsletter to you, because we believe that trusted resources for parents benefit our whole community.

The Early Learning Digest is a resource you can trust. The publication provides a snapshot of information about parenting and child-rearing in a concise way that parents will appreciate. In addition, there are options within the e-newsletter to link to further information if you are interested in learning more about a topic.

The newsletter this month includes a brief introduction into Howard Gardner’s research on the different kinds of intelligences.  For example, some children–and adults–have a stronger propensity for learning and understanding information by listening to words, and some children learn best when that information is presented in pictures.  There are also tips for how to communicate effectively with your child. Also included is information about early math skills and how to build them.  Enjoy this edition of Early Learning Digest.
