ECS is a great program. They have plenty of resources and offer alot of staff coaching as well as professional development to directors. The program does require alot of work but it's worth it. They showed me a more organized way of operating my daycare center. From paperwork, to interaction with children to different ways of teaching children to learn through play. Just a great program.
We live and work in a very impoverished community. We have been affiliated with ECS for a number of years and have found them to be top-notch! They are always willing to go the extra mile and do whatever they can to provide services for our clients. Anytime we need their assistance (phone/email/letter,etc) we have found they are very quick in their response. I could go on but the bottom line is this, WE THINK ECS IS GREAT! What a wonderful coalition to be a part of!
I am the Director of a child care center in Baker County Florida called ABC Learning Center. Episcopal Children’s Services known as (ECS), has been a big help to our center. They provide a wonderful service to our under income clients. ECS will help our under income clients that qualify with subsidize affordable childcare. If I have any questions or concerns they have always provided me with a fast response. This is a wonderful program that helps parents or sometimes single parents be able to go to work and help provide for their family. ECS also offers help in the classrooms, this is a big help when you have a new beginner teacher. ECS has offered trainings, ideals, support coach, encouragement & has also provided materials for the classroom. I use 3 different agencies for under income families. ECS is by far my favorite, There is always someone on the other end of the phone willing to help me, no automated machine press this number or that number, It is a live friendly person that I can understand and they are willing to help. If you are on the phone a lot, dealing with 123 children, 14 employees, & parents that is what kind help you need not a hard time.
