About Us

Early Learning Labs grew from decades of nationally-recognized research and innovative collaboration at the University of Minnesota. Comprised of field-experienced experts, our team offers early childhood educators and care-providers with evidence-based solutions for their classrooms.

While studies provide evidence that early skill development has a wide-impact on a child’s long term academic outcomes, more than one-third of America’s young children enter kindergarten lacking the skills crucial to school success. It’s our mission to address this issue and impact the lives of children everywhere.

Our early childhood assessment program, myIGDIs, help teachers and parents better monitor the development of their young children. The myIGDIs measurement indicators also enable early childhood educators to identify children at-risk of poor learning outcomes early and monitor development goals often.
