Our Story

Our mission is simple: 

To nurture young children through quality preschool programs,

To inspire children to use creativity and

To discover freely the world around them.

We have been a vital part of the Eastlake and Garfield communities since our founding in 1967. We were founded to provide education to children of low income families and have expanded to additional locations and to offer quality preschool. We have continued to grow with the help of our donors and the volunteers that make our mission possible. Through all these years our purpose still remains the same: bring quality services to children and families.

We are a non-profit, 501(c)(3) corporation offering a comprehensive Head Start program as well as a preschool program open to all children ages 3-5. Our programs receive scholarship support from First Things First and from grants and donations from local corporations and the community.
