The common thread running throughout all our programs is the importance of services to children ages prenatal to 6. These are the key formative years in life, and ultimately the building blocks to a child’s future. A parent is a child’s first and most important teacher. The family is the strongest element in shaping a child’s life. It’s where the cycle of learning begins, where the attitudes of parents about learning become the educational values of their children. Early Years programs help provide the tools and knowledge to empower each family member to reach their full potential despite obstacles that get in the way.
