Thought Leadership

Our mission is to transform the lives of children, their families and communities through model early childhood education and leadership in the field.

Since our establishment in 1888, our mission has remained the same, but we continue to innove and grow as a high-quality early education organization. In recent years, we have created platforms and participated in events that enable us to explore trends in the early childhood education industry and share our thoughts.

Welcome to the Sheltering Arms Thought Leadership page, where you can see what we’re up to and how we engage other leaders. If you have any questions or would like to contact us, please email us at
