Children First’s mission is to provide each child the opportunity to develop intellectually, socially, emotionally, and physically. The staff of Children First guides each child in activities that will create life-long learners, decision-makers and effective communicators.
Children First is the culmination of 40+ years of experience in Early Childhood Education for owners Vicki Durham and Ann Erne. Children First understands you are entrusting their child’s care to them. They realize the responsibility of that trust and strive to provide a quality of child care that exceeds the standards currently set by the Arkansas Department of Human Services.
