The Center for Early Education and Development (CEED) at the University of Minnesota has spent over 30 years helping children from infancy through age eight to learn and develop to the best of their abilities. Through research and community outreach, we strive to effect positive change in early education, child care, and public policy.

CEED promotes ongoing coordination and expansion of academic leaders interested in early education and development and provides leadership in the University’s ongoing effort to engage the people and programs of Minnesota in ways that make real contributions to our quality of life. CEED is strong, vital, and positioned for an exciting future.
