The mission of Educational First Steps is to increase the availability of quality early childhood education for economically disadvantaged children. Through their Four Steps to Excellence 2.0 program, they transform existing daycare centers in at-risk neighborhoods into nationally accredited preschools. We do this at no cost to centers or teachers. By creating more impactful early learning experiences, Educational First Steps is preparing more children for school and life success. It’s a smart investment – for all of us.
