Our Vision


All children will learn, grow and develop to realize their full potential.


Our Mission


To provide the information, support and encouragement parents need to help their children develop optimally during the crucial early years of life.


Our Values


▪The early years of a child’s life are critical for optimal development and provide the foundation for success in school and in life.


▪Parents are their children’s first and most influential teachers. Established and emerging research should be the foundation of parent education and family
 support curricula, training, materials and services.


▪All young children and their families deserve the same opportunities
to succeed, regardless of any demographic, geographic
or economic considerations.
▪An understanding and appreciation of the history and traditions of
diverse culture is essential in serving families
