Guiding Principles

We believe that parent education and early childhood education are vital to the health and well-being of our community. We also believe that these are two often-overlooked educational facets that must be prioritized and protected. 

As current or past students of the Parent Education Department, we know what a treasure programs like these are, and what a lifeline they can offer to young families.
