Organization Information

Mission Statement

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

Description

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.
