Who We Are

Our Mission

Educational-First-Steps_HR-1411

Educational First Steps (EFS) seeks to create and support high-quality early learning environments that ignite the minds of children from birth to age five. 

EFS’ early childhood education program, the Four Steps to Excellence, provides the evidence-based training, mentoring, and comprehensive resource support, all at no cost to teachers, families, and communities, needed to help childcare centers achieve national accreditation. 

In turn, childcare providers deliver the high-quality, high-impact care required to create and support early learning environments that help all children experience an equal opportunity for success.
