Vision:

Our Vision is to provide high quality early childhood experiences for children.



Mission:

Through partnership with families, teachers and communities, our mission is to cultivate child-centered, play-based environments that support critical thinking skills, develop positive self-concepts and facilitate independence and competence - all of which build the foundation for lifelong learning for children in the Barry ISD Great Start Readiness Program.  


Principles:

  • Positive interactions and relationships with adults provide critical foundation for successful learning.
  • Social-emotional competence is a significant factor in school success. 
  • Constructive, purposeful play supports essential learning
  • The physical environment affects the type and quality of learning interactions.
  • Teacher-family partnerships promote development and learning.
