The years of early childhood are critical windows of development during which much of human potential is shaped.
All children are inherently worthy of receiving the best possible start in life and are the most valuable resource for the future of our community. Responsive, nurturing relationships with consistent caregivers in a safe, stimulating learning environment create the best possible chance for children’s healthy development and school readiness.
Families are the single most important influence on the development of young children.
The work of supporting families and caregivers is a collaborative effort between state and local stakeholders within the public, private, and faith sectors.
School readiness is the result of a child’s development in many areas -including physical development, approaches to learning and inquiry, social and emotional development, language and literacy development, and mathematical thinking -with each contributing to the child’s success.
We value and demonstrate diverse perspectives in the development of programs. Services must be individualized and adaptable to meet the unique needs of children and families and we ensure that all families have the opportunity to be successful.
