Our Mission:

We partner with our families, schools, and communities to ensure that each child arrives ready for kindergarten.


Our Vision:

For Children: To ensure school readiness by providing high quality education and strong foundations for social, emotional and physical development.

For Families: To create stronger, healthier families by ensuring access to community resources, increasing positive parenting practices and providing opportunities for personal growth.

For Communities: To build more vibrant communities through advocacy, education, collaboration, and commitment to building stronger families.


Our Values:

We value family as children depend on family for love, safety, health and learning. We nurture a family-friendly workplace so our staff can be there for their families too.

We value partnerships for the connections to others that allow us to serve our children, families and communities better than we can serve them alone.

We value compassion dedicated to love, joy, empathy and hope necessary to support children, families and ourselves to become who we want to be.

We value excellence and the continuous process of setting goals, reviewing progress, and planning for improved outcomes for children, families and our organization.

We value equity to ensure equal opportunities for children, families and staff members regardless of race, ethnicity, religion, language, family income, geography, gender identity and sexual orientation.
