  • Family Services: We believe that services are family-centered; therefore, we value that children develop in the context of their family and culture, and parents are respected as the primary educators of their child.
  • Mvskoke Language: We value the Mvskoke language; therefore, we believe in efforts to preserve and teach with an emphasis on retaining the Mvskoke language that children will pass along to future generations.
  • Health: We empower children, and those involved with Head Start; therefore, we value healthy lifestyles, with an emphasis on developing self-care and wellness choices for life.
