Our Mission & Core Values

  Enriching communities, one family at a time. When, as a community, we make sure that everyone can reach their human potential and fully contribute to our communities, we all benefit. Maximizing the potential of children, people who are our neighbors, our workforce, and our civic body ensures that our communities remain vibrant places to live, work, and play.


Board of Child Care is comprised of program participants, employees, board of directors, and volunteers. Our values guide all stakeholders in how to behave and are structured to ensure that they are at the forefront of every decision and action.  

  • SAFETY as a mindset. We value life, spirit, and health above all else and take action to maintain the safety of our workplaces, programs, and services. We are personally accountable for our own safety and collectively responsible for the safety of our community.
  • Act with INTEGRITY. Openness and honesty with all stakeholders make for both the best program outcomes and team culture. We, as an organization, must build trust with our program participants by being thoughtful, transparent, and committed to our decisions and promises.
  • Listen and respond with EMPATHY. Empathy guides our programming and culture at all levels. A supportive work and program environment mean possessing a desire to know and understand others. We recognize that with empathy we will better understand what type of care and encouragement to provide.
