PPP (Parent Participation Programs)

Play an Active Role in Your Child’s Early Education

Keiki O Ka ‘Āina’s Parent Participation Programs (PPP) meets twice a week at different communities around Oahu.  The goal of PPP is to support parents as their child’s first teacher.  Hawaiian values such as Aloha (love), Mālama (Care), Kuleana (Responsibility) and Laulima (Many Hands) are some of the daily values practiced in class.

Learning centers are set up to support hands-on learning and encourage parent/child interactions.  As keiki and makua engage in meaningful learning through play, they build strong relationships with each other, peers & other ‘ohana.  We enroll families without regard to race, religion or disability. All are welcome!

Family Outcomes

Our hope is keiki will:                                                                                                                          

  • Develop the skills, knowledge and experiences for life and learning;
  • Develop a strong sense of self, ‘ohana and where they come from;
  • Recognize and practice Hawaiian language and culture.                                                                          

This dynamic program helps mākua:

  • Recognize how to become advocates for their keiki;
  • Engage in safe, healthy practices for keiki well-being;
  • Recognize and practice Hawaiian language and culture.
