“I want kids to be able to come to an early childhood program and know that there’s somebody there who just wants to see them succeed.” Those are the words of Brenda Daudt, a non-traditional student at Itasca Community College (ICC) who just finished-up her Child Development (CD) Certificate in May and is on track to complete her A.S. degree in Early Childhood next spring.

Daudt, recently hired by the area’s Invest Early program, along with her classmates in Early Childhood at ICC, are key pieces in a community collaborative focused on investing in the early years of children’s lives. The need for a locally educated workforce of childcare professionals was created when the Blandin Foundation responded to a lack of affordable quality child care, and in collaboration with community partners, developed and funded the region’s Invest Early project. With the increased demand for child care providers, ICC has been able to develop and sustain an Early Childhood program that prepares local adults to work, not only for Invest Early, but for many other child care programs in the region.
