Welcome, and thank you for visiting the virtual home of Mississippi’s early childhood care and education system! Our system is comprised of parents, providers, state employees, and the many professionals and community members who dedicate their time to caring for and nurturing the well-being of Mississippi’s children. Mississippi is growing, and our children are our greatest asset. They are to be protected, cultivated, and empowered to be their best selves. Use the links below to explore the content of this site. We thank you for your service to the state and to our children.
