Who We Are

Our Mission

Our commitment is to provide families access to the highest quality of early childhood education and care.

Our values

Commitment: We are dedicated to the well-being of children six weeks through pre-kindergarten. We consider the needs of the whole child: social, emotional, physical, and cognitive. We understand that an investment in young children is the best investment for the future of our community.

Integrity: We adhere to high ethical and professional standards in work and relationships. We are fair and respectful in our interactions with families and early childhood professionals. We are a conscientious steward of the resources entrusted to us.

Excellence: We strive to improve upon our services to deliver the highest quality of care and education. We leverage expertise and resources for the greatest impact on young children in Northwest Arkansas.

Leadership: We encourage initiative and leadership, and strive to be a model within our field. We use a collaborative approach with families, early childhood partners, and donors to improve early childhood services and community awareness.

Diversity: We believe that families win when everyone matters, and that the true strength of diversity is unleashed when each child and early childhood professional is encouraged to reach their full potential. Diversity then becomes the foundation for an inclusive, sustainable early childhood program that embraces and respects differences, develops our teachers, serves our families, and partners with our community.
