Early Childhood Education

Early childhood education is critical in the first three years of a child’s life. Our high-quality programs prepare children for future school success.

Breaking the Cycle

It’s the core of our mission. We believe early childhood education coupled with innovative family and community programs break the cycle of poverty.

Family Advancement

Families in our early childhood program have access to workforce and education training, parent socializations and benefit screenings.


Parent educators bring high-quality early childhood education into the home, showing parents how to be their child’s first teacher.
