Power of Early Education

We believe in our power to eliminate the opportunity gap for children we serve and nurture. Therefore, we are passionate about our jobs. We are professionals committed to best practices and instilling a love of learning.


We believe families are one of the child’s most important teachers. Therefore, we welcome families by inviting them to participate in all aspects of the program so they can share their skills and language. We share new skills so they can support their child’s learning and development to the fullest.  


We believe diversity is a strength that teaches us to live and thrive in the world. Therefore, we instill pride in each child’s language, cultural background, family structure, gender, ability and religion.  We seek to understand and respect other cultures and we foster this value in the children, families, staff and community.


We believe all children have the right to achieve to their fullest potential.  Therefore, we work to increase awareness of and welcome and support differences and embrace our similarities, provide training on how to be inclusive, and advocate for services and resources that support inclusion for ourselves and our families.


We believe children, families and staff thrive in a community that embraces similarities and differences. Therefore, we create a DLEC community that is welcoming, joyful and loving.  


We believe trust is a foundational element in how children learn about themselves and their world. Therefore, we build trust by providing a safe place for learning. We are honest and dependable, laying a foundation for trust with children, families and staff.


We believe children thrive when they have a nurturing and caring environment.  We show caring by being flexible and listening. We show caring by following up and following through.


We love what we do and always strive to do our best for children and families. We take initiative, we learn and put new skills into practice so that we can help children and families do their best. We know this work takes commitment.
