Four Steps to Excellence
Educational First Steps’ early childhood education program, the Four Steps to Excellence, places childcare centers on the path to national accreditation from two of the most rigorous accrediting agencies – the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC) and the National Accreditation Commission of Early Care and Education (NAC).
In about 36 months, EFS guides childcare centers through a progressive four-step process culminating with the center’s accreditation at no cost to the educators, families, and communities served. Once accredited, these centers provide the type of early education that impacts children and can help transform an entire community.

Educational First Steps believes in educating caregivers to produce high-quality learning environments for the children and families that we serve.
