The Success By 6 and the Making Children First Initiatives were created to address the issue of Early Childhood Development in each community. Our goal is to prepare all children to succeed before entering school. We believe nurturing children within a safe, healthy, and stimulating environment promotes socially, emotionally, and intellectually prepared students who are then prepared to succeed in school. In our effort to improve the quality of available childcare programs, we are addressing the needs of parents, childcare providers and employers through a variety of educational and informative activities.
