“The most valuable resource that all teachers have is each other. Without collaboration our growth is limited to our own perspectives.”

Robert John Meehan

The purpose of MnECO is to connect early childhood educators throughout the state of Minnesota with one another, share resources and support each other in providing high quality, developmentally appropriate nature-based learning opportunities.

MnECO strives to host four professional development workshops a year, at various locations around Minnesota.
