Who We Are

Who We Are

Since 1990, Educational First Steps has equipped the people who care for children with the proven tools and techniques that transform caregiving into teaching. 

Through EFS’ early childhood education program, the Four Steps to Excellence, Educational First Steps transforms existing daycare centers into nationally accredited preschools.  At no cost to the educators, families, and communities served, EFS creates and supports high-quality early learning environments that ignite the minds of children from birth to age five.

By investing in early childhood education, EFS aims to help close achievement gaps for early learners, break cycles of generational poverty for families, and create a brighter and more equitable tomorrow for the children and communities of North Texas.
