ECQC was created in 2004 to meet the need for quality care of youth in Miami-Dade County. The organization is a pioneer in developing excellent alternative and (w)holistic programs, and is committed to enriching the lives of children and adults by adding unconventional enrichment activities to programs.
The founder, Jeannette Blanca Egozi, is an Internationally Certified Stress Management Consultant, Certified Mental Health Professional, Teacher, and has a Masters in Speech Language Pathology. Furthermore, in 2009, she obtained a Peace Mediation Certificate from the University of Spiritual Healing and Sufism. Her professional and educational experience helped her create a “cutting edge” approach to health and wellness that goes beyond traditional methods.
ECQC has a two-pronged approach:
1) Creative & Quality Programming – The team will facilitate designing and implementing quality programming specific to the needs of your facility. ECQC specializes in developing alternative enrichment curriculum for child/youth service providers in underserved communities. The goal is to help the providers think creatively when it comes to programming, which will, in turn, help provide the students with new forms of learning.
2) Business Development & Start Up– The team of Consultants further provides logistical assistance with the business side of opening and operating a childcare center. This includes the process of licensure, set up, accreditation, staff training and certification, food programming, standard operating procedures, finances, enrollment, marketing, human resources, public relations, and community outreach. In 2006, ECQC created its primary program, Playing the Game of Life℠ (PGL℠), the (w) holistic approach to teaching social skills and life-long wellness to children, adolescents, parents and caregivers.
