A community shaped by and for you
Early Care Educators of San Francisco (ECESF) is a non-profit community-based organization dedicated to bringing the voice of early care educators to the broader community, leaders, policy makers, allies, and peers to affect change.
Guided by shared purpose
ECESF organizes around a mission, vision, and a set of principles developed by our community, which guide and inspire our work with each other.
Organized to make change
Early Care Educators of San Francisco come together to get to know each other across diverse sites, learn about each other’s shared and diverse experiences, shape ECESF’s program and priority goals, and work together to make a difference.
