At Penfield Children's Center, we have five core values that guide our work and the way we interact with our children, our parents and our colleagues. On Wednesday, as we witnessed unprecedented threats to our democracy in our nation's capital, there are two of our values that provide comfort and focus during this challenging time - Lead with Love and Better Together.

Lead with Love: When we Lead with Love, we welcome everyone with compassion and empathy; patience and kindness. To lead with love, we look for the best in our co-workers, our families and ourselves.

Better Together: Together, we can do amazing things. Children and families trust us and depend on us to work as a team to meet their needs. We are better together when we maximize our strengths, the gifts of our colleagues and the commitment of our amazing partners.

At Penfield Children's Center, we stand up for what is right and denounce injustice. It's a core belief we share and a guiding principle for the early intervention, education and health & wellness services we provide to children in our care. The children and families we serve, our staff and everyone that makes this work possible are in our hearts as we navigate the challenges of the pandemic; political, social and racial inequities; and hate and violence in our community.

We believe in our democracy. We believe in equity. We believe in inclusion. We believe that Black Lives Matter.

Thank you for everything you do to support our mission, our children and families and our staff at Penfield Children's Center. We are Better Together.
