Quality Child Development Programs Since 1976

Welcome to Especially for Children! We offer child care programs in which children learn, grow and discover with their peers. At EFC, your child will be cared for by encouraging adults in a creative, safe and supportive learning environment. As a family- and locally-owned organization, we are committed to strong relationships with children, families and teaching staff. We would love for you to visit us to see if Especially for Children is the right place for you and you child.


Celebrating 45 Years

In 2021, we are celebrating 45 years since the founding of EFC. One of the ways in which we are commemorating this milestone is through the Share Your Passion project. We want to learn about, celebrate, and share the passions of the wonderful people that make up the EFC family, so we are asking those who are or have been associated with EFC to share their passions with us. Our Share Your Passion Gallery will showcase these submissions, and we may even have a traveling exhibit later this year. Thank you to everyone who participates!
