Our Mission, Vision & Values

Our Mission

We design and deliver inclusive, anti-bias, and rigorous approaches to eliminate the gaps between young children’s inherent potential and their achievement in school and life. With our partners, we accelerate child and family outcomes that honor the aspirations and cultures of the communities we serve.

Our Vision

We envision a world where children become champions of their own making; where historical biases and systemic inequities no longer stand in the way of their infinite promise.

Our Values


We commit to continuous improvement, as we use data inclusive of our lived experiences to inform organizational strategy, both programmatic and operational.


We demonstrate integrity, openness and transparency as a means by which to build trust among our team and the communities we serve.


We believe talents can be developed. Challenges and barriers are opportunities to refine skills, solutions, and approaches. We serve our children, families, and partners with intention and quality by developing and engaging in innovative professional development, providing equitable support, and leading with a can-do attitude.


We disrupt historical ways of thinking and doing in order to create spaces of radical inclusion so that individuals and communities are better.


We recognize that we can not be successful in our mission without building authentic, trusting, caring relationships that connect us through our shared humanity. As such, we value the inherent worth, dignity, and abilities of all individuals, families, groups, and communities.
