Educational First Steps (EFS) is launching its monthly Partner Center Spotlight, a video interview series featuring the business owners and directors behind the small businesses and early education centers that EFS partners with throughout North Texas. The purpose of this series is to highlight the work done by their partners, the impact centers have on their communities, and how EFS supports their efforts. To kick off this project, EFS shares an interview with Program Director and Co-Owner of 2nd Step Daycare & Learning Center, Andre Williams, as he shares about his center, his goals, and the importance of high-quality early childhood education.
For over 30 years, Educational First Steps has served the North Texas community by creating and supporting high-quality early learning environments that ignite the minds of children from birth to age five. They achieve this by transforming existing childcare centers into nationally accredited preschools in a period of 36 months (about three years) at no cost to the centers or parents. By securing national accreditation, centers become true preschools, preparing children for kindergarten and beyond and placing them on a path to success.
