Head Start got it right. Giving ECS the Duval County contract would be dooming it to more failure. This company will be out of business within 5 years without major leadership changes, starting with the CEO, who rated her own company as 5 stars just a few months after obliterating the leadership team and taking it from 9 people to 3. It's a shame. Good talent still exists here, but it's not able to spread it's wings due to the blinders fixed to the C-Level folks at the place.
I have worked with ECS for over 23 years. Every day that I come into work is exciting and rewarding becuase we have continued the almost 50 year tradition of "excellence" in serving young children in Duval, Clay, Nassau, Baker, Bradford, Union, St. Johns and Putnma Counties.

Review from Guidestar
We are so glad to work with Episcopal Children's Services. Episcopal does a great job with supporting our center with trainings, communications, assesments, and funding. Episcopal makes it possible for children from all types of backgrounds to enroll in a great educational setting. This gives them the chance to thrive when they enter Kindergarden. Thank you Epicopal. -Cheyenne, Director (Treasure Harbor Preschool) St. Augustine, Florida.
I work as a Family Services Specialist in a satellite office and am told on a daily basis that without our School Readiness services, they would be unable to work or attend school due to the cost of childcare. Next to rent or a mortgage this is the next biggest expense that they have. ECS also does excellent things with the Head Start programs. These services ensure a positive start to a childs education and as we all know, edusation is a key to a bright future. We hear quite a few success stories and try to provide quality customer service while ensuring that people who need assistance are served quickly and efficiently and ensure that they leave our office with their dignity in tact. It is not easy for some to ask for help but we try to make it a positive experience.
ECS is always there for their clients. They put the needs of the children first and then the families. ECS is always open to suggestions and willing to help out the providers that provide care for the children in any way that they can. It is a joy to work with a professional organization that is able to keep up a friendly and warm relationship while meeting the needs of all the people they deal with.
Love the help, that we always receive. This company always put the children first in all decision. A joy to work with
ECS always puts the children and families it serves first. They are innovators and consistently raising the bar of excellence. They are highly professional in everything they do and yet maintain a warm and receiving environment for both their staff and their clients. They give careful thought to every decision they make. They understand all the unique needs of the diverse communitits they serve. All in all....they are "top drawer".
