Better Beginnings


To provide high quality, affordable child care program that contributes to the educational, physical, social and character development of individual children in a safe and healthy environment, while giving their parents the ability to remain employed or attend a full time training/education program, thereby having the opportunity to be self-supporting and contributing members of the community.


Our vision is to provide the children of working parents with an affordable, enriched early childhood educational program that is diversified and developmentally age-appropriate and that will provide a pathway for strong, healthy self-reliant families.

  • We foster an environment that allows us to create and embrace new ideas.
  • We believe in the value of parenting and team work.
  • Strong commitment to serving low and moderate income individuals and families.
  • Dedication and integrity in everything we do.
