Building communities where children thrive
starts with understanding how they live.
We’re all working to ensure children in the middle years have the opportunity to thrive. We believe that doing this successfully starts with being fully informed–having a baseline to work from. How are our children doing right now, and how is this changing over time?
That’s why using a standardized measurement like the MDI–one that is sensitive to the complexity of the middle years period of development–can be a critical first step in your change efforts.
The resources on this page are designed to help those new to MDI better understand the tool, and useful for more seasoned participants to share with their staff, their kids and families, and their own community.
