Our Vision


To make a difference in the lives of children ages three to six and their families by providing high quality, comprehensive, developmentally appropriate early learning opportunities in a safe and nurturing environment that supports and respects diversity.

Our Mission


The mission of the Office of Early Childhood Education is to provide the foundation for life-long learning. The focus of our work is to systematically plan and implement programs that most effectively use human, financial, and programmatic resources to meet the needs of children ages three to six and their families. Our goal is to ensure that every child in our program is safe, mentally and physically healthy and engages in activities which promote learning and success. Our guiding principles are systemic in approach, grounded in research, and are characterized by significant levels of parent involvement and community support.
