Mission Statement

WSU Child Care Resource & Referral is committed to the promotion of quality early learning and parent education programs in Whitman & Asotin Counties, and to the improvement of access to child care and other family services. This mission is predicated on the following set of beliefs:

  • Families deserve community support to work and maintain their family ties without undue concern regarding the care and education given to their children, whether their child is an infant or a young teenager.
  • Children deserve high quality, developmentally appropriate care inside and outside the home, from parents/guardians as well as caregivers.
  • Child care providers and other early learning professionals deliver valuable, essential services and deserve a living wage, ongoing professional training, and support for continuing in their chosen career.
  • Community agencies who work with children, families and child care providers need to work together to support families and to advocate for quality services.
