Early Childhood Education
Creating a future in which all children in our community enter Kindergarten healthy, happy and ready to succeed in school and life.

Children thrive when they are cared for by responsive and sensitive adults; participate in regular, stimulating early learning experiences, and enjoy healthy food and active play.

We also provide opportunities for their parents to receive the skills they need to better prepare their children for success in school and beyond.
