About Us

Our Mission:

  • To Improve child development by supporting positive, goal-oriented relationships between Early Childhood Educators and Families

We Do This By:

  • Collaborating with Arkansas professionals to support a continuum of relationship-based competencies that engage families in productive partnerships
  • Providing high-quality training linked with technical assistance to encourage:
  • Positive, goal-oriented, and culturally responsive relationships
  • Respect for parents, who are the first teachers and lifelong educators of their children
  • Supportive networks, connections, and community resources for families.

  • Providing tools to support and encourage positive, goal-oriented relationships. These tools help educators work with– not for– families
