Episcopal Children’s Services helps underserved children in Northeast and Central Florida build a strong foundation for educational success. Working with children from birth to age 5 – the most critical years for cognitive development – ECS’s dedicated teachers and staff use curriculums based on the latest research and best practices to help families ensure their youngsters enter school ready to learn.
A recognized leader in early childhood education for more than 50 years, ECS serves over 25,000 children and their families in 14 counties: Baker, Bradford, Clay, Duval, Nassau, Putnam, St John’s, Alachua, Marion, Lake, Citrus, Gilchrist, Dixie, and Levy. We believe that educating a child not only improves their odds for success but also strengthens the entire community.
ECS programs use a “whole child” approach that helps kids grow intellectually, emotionally and socially. We also provide resources and training to caregivers in order to enhance access to high-quality childcare.
