A Newsletter from Baby's Space   April, 2012 Volume 3, Issue 4

Baby's Space is a holistic, research-based approach to infant through 3rd grade education, adolescent mental health services and support for children and families residing in poverty and violence.

I'm proud to introduce Baby's Space Environments, LLC, a new entity that will provide learning environments, themed teacher training kits and staff training to providers across the United States.


Throughout my travels to early-childhood conferences and speaking engagements, I'm often asked, "How can we replicate the Baby's Space program in our city?" The introduction of Baby's Space Environments answers the question by providing resources developed from our signature "from a baby's point of view" approach. Beginning this year, we'll offer:

  • Custom-built environment structures to use in classrooms.
  • Themed teacher training kits that focus on daily learning and emotional health.
  • Training and coaching programs for childcare providers that enhance skills and effectiveness.

 Baby's Space continues to flourish in Minneapolis - and beyond. Thank you for your ongoing support!


Best Regards,


Terrie Rose

Founder and Chief Executive Officer
