Mission Statement

Our mission is to provide comprehensive, high quality, developmental services designed to empower children and their families.

Description

First A.M.E. Child and Family Center offers FREE Early Head Start , Head Start and Home-Based educational programs to prenatal mothers and children from birth to five years old. We offer part-day and full-day options for qualifying families that reside in our service boundaries.

Head Start programs promote school-readiness by enhancing the social and cognitive development of children through the provision of educational, health, nutrition, social and other services to enrolled children and their families.

Our philosophy First A.M.E. Child and Family Center applies the Reggio Emilia approach to teaching young children. This puts the natural development of children- as well as the close relationship that they share with their environment- at the center of its philosophy.

Important ideas such as taking time to listen to and observe children, valuing and respecting children, involving families, valuing differences rather than perpetuating stigma, and being open as a teacher to learn along with the child as they investigate real-life questions through projects are worthy of our consideration.

Building strong community educational networks that are supportive and nurturing for all children and families, regardless of social class or cultural and linguistic background, are possible and desirable.
