Elevating Early Childhood to raise opportunities for all children.
Access to Quality Care and Education
Our vision is to be a culturally aware and inclusive community where all children and their families are healthy, thriving, learning and connected with a mission to nurture every child on the path to success.
The first five years are the most critical years of development for the human brain. It is incumbent upon all members of our community to support high-quality early childhood programs and services for youth and their families, as well as the workforce that delivers these programs in support of our community’s youngest citizens.
Our purpose is to increase cross-sector initiatives to advocate for high quality early childhood development, learning experiences and environments.
A high-quality program as defined by the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC) provides “a safe, nurturing environment that promotes the physical, social, emotional and cognitive development of young children while responding to the needs of families."
When care is consistent, developmentally appropriate, and emotionally supportive, and the environment is healthy and safe, there are positive effects on children and their families. Please consider joining us once a month to brainstorm ideas and put into action for our Lincoln families.
