Mission & Vision
Catherine Hershey Schools for Early Learning creates high quality learning communities that nurture, educate, and empower children and families in social and financial need to lead fulfilling and productive lives.
Catherine Hershey Schools for Early Learning transforms the lives of children in social and financial need by providing them with the foundation for life-long success. CHS embraces and supports families, strengthens the broader community, and serves as a leader in early childhood education to improve outcomes for children everywhere.
Catherine Hershey was known for her kind and nurturing spirit – whether it was how she cared for her beautiful gardens or her compassion for children everywhere. She also believed every child deserved a chance to thrive. Her dream to provide care and education to those who need it lives on each day at Catherine Hershey Schools for Early Learning.
Catherine and her husband Milton believed in a set of values that we still hold dear to this day. They are commitment, integrity, positivity, and respect. We look for these values in our staff and nurture them in our students. We believe they are the key to children becoming their best selves.
