Our Vision

About Our Place

In 1979 a group of women came together with a shared vision of a place where parents and caregivers could meet and discuss parenting, learn from each other, and share ideas while at the same time provide early learning opportunities for children. Belief in this vision led to establishing Our Place. Belonging, Well-Being, Engagement and Expression — foundational conditions important for families to grow and flourish — capture the essence of what Our Place is. That is what the last 40 are based on and why we remain vital to children, their families and the community.

For many years, the motto for Our Place has been 'Our Place is YOUR Place'.  It truly is and the belief is embedded in the relationships we form, the programs and services we deliver, and the community we build.
