All Children Are Capable of Success, NO EXCEPTIONS!

This is one of the core beliefs the staff and children hold at the Early Learning Center. We believe in all of the children and teach them to be Kids at Hope. One way we practice being Kids at Hope is through the Kids at Hope pledge:
I am a Kid at Hope

I am talented, smart, and capable of success

I have dreams for the future,

and I will climb to reach those goals and dreams every day.

All Children are Capable of Success-NO EXCEPTIONS!
