We are a nonprofit organization that uses research and best practices to help families ensure their children enter school ready to learn. Our talented, dedicated teachers and staff proactively work with under served children from birth to age five and their families to build a strong educational foundation. It is a "whole" child approach - helping kids grow intellectually, emotionally and socially. Research shows that 90 percent of cognitive development occurs before the age of five. We believe that educating a child improves their future success and strengthens the entire community!
