Our mission is to foster the life-long learning of children and their families. The Peoria Tribe Early Childhood Program strives to enhance the growth and development of children, in partnership with their families and our community, by cultivating the social, emotional, physical, and intellectual progress unique to each child. We believe in connecting deeply with our heritage and our cultural values to create a comprehensive, linguistically appropriate program.
