Wee Care Children's Enrichment Program, Inc.

Our Program

Program Highlights

Every three years Wee Care enrolls a new group of two-year-old children, and works with this same group of children through age four; providing educational stability to the students and cultivating stronger relationships with students' families. This consistency, combined with reaching kids at an earlier age, is what makes Wee Care unique.

Our Mission

Wee Care provides a free preschool education for economically disadvantaged children equipping them with social, emotional and cognitive skills and confidence to succeed in kindergarten.

Our Vision

Every child has the opportunity to start school with the skills and confidence to thrive.

Our Values


Our work is grounded in all-encompassing, unconditional love.


We are committed to nurturing our students’ academic, social, and emotional growth to ensure they reach their full potential.


We help our students develop confidence and independence by providing consistent guidance and structure from the same teachers throughout their entire Wee Care experience.


The relationship between teachers and parents is vital to success. We support collaboration between parents, school staff, and community resources.


From the Founder

“All too often children fail in school and life, not because they lack the brainpower and desire to succeed, but because they lack the experiences, opportunities, and support that every child deserves. Without those critical elements during the earliest years, these children arrive at elementary school woefully behind their peers. By the time they reach middle school they begin to feel they can’t succeed, and by high school some have dropped out of the educational system.

By introducing rich educational experiences and critical family support beginning at age two and continuing through their transition into kindergarten, Wee Care seeks to change the lives of these at-risk children.”
