Educational First Steps assists nearly 90 child care centers, showing caregivers how to create high-quality early learning environments that start at-risk children on a path to lifelong success. By helping these centers reach national accreditation, families have options for quality child care regardless of their income status or zip code.

Many of the centers need help matching the physical aspects of the center to the quality of care they provide.

Merrimac Learning Center needs help with a section of fence that is falling down where the children play as well as help reparing a leaking sink in the toddler room.

If you are interested, please call or email Melissa at 214-824-7940 or manderson@educationalfirststeps.org.

Mission Statement

OUR MISSION: To improve the quality and availability of early childhood education for economically disadvantaged children.


Educational First Steps helps create nationally accredited early learning centers in the neighborhoods and for the children that need them most. We do this by transforming day care centers in disadvantaged and at risk neighborhoods of North Texas into superior pre-school experiences and their staffs into qualified teachers of age appropriate academic and social-emotional skills. Without this opportunity to develop a solid early foundation, these children most often enter the elementary grades unprepared for learning, with inadequate vocabulary, in need of costly remedial intervention and likely to repeat the cycle of poverty.

EFS' goal is to intervene in these children's lives at a pivotal point when they want nothing more than to learn -- and need nothing less than our best effort to give them the opportunity they deserve.
