Division of Early Childhood education

Vision Statement

To provide a comprehensive, inter-disciplinary approach to services including education, health, nutrition, social services, and parent involvement.

Mission Statement

It is the belief of the Division of Early Childhood Education that education is more than academic achievement and must provide learning experiences for all Tribal members, from infants to elders. It must include not only the intellectual but the democratic, moral, personal, physical, and social development of the Mississippi Band of Choctaw Indians.
The DOECE recognizes that true success and achievement will only be accomplished through the combined efforts of home and school. The DOECE accepts the primary responsibility for guiding the learning process while reinforcing the need for support and involvement from the parents and the community, for the first and most important teachers of our children are the parents.
The DOECE feels that its bilingual/cultural curriculum implementation and other provided services help to encourage and guide the child toward success in today's society, while instilling in them pride in themselves and their heritage.
