Pūlama I Nā Keiki

Our Purpose

Our purpose is to kōkua mothers and fathers of Native Hawaiian children to prepare their keiki for future educational success.


Participation in the program is exclusive to children of Hawaiian or part-Hawaiian ancestry and is completely voluntary. Our goal is to work with families of Native Hawaiian children as young as possible.

Preference is given:

  • To prenatal families
  • To families expecting a first or second child
  • To families of children up to six months old


Our program offers prenatal and parent/child services including:

  • Home visits
  • Workshops
  • Parent/toddler groups



This is an illustration for our quilt panels. Ho‘olohe, is an important communication skill.
Our baby quilt (kapa) and T-shirt activities show how all children learn through their senses and interaction with their `Ohana and `Aina.

Our Program Specialists provide:
Culturally-based information about prenatal health, childbirth, child development, and child rearing

Activities that help families encourage their keiki’s interest in learning

The home is a keiki’s first classroom and early experiences affect a keiki’s education success

Extended family members are the keiki’s first experience with the concept of community

Our philosophy is based on the following set of beliefs: Mothers and fathers are a keiki’s first teachers and they want their children to succeed.

We help mothers and fathers recognize and build on the family values and cultural strengths that contribute to their keiki ’s educational success
