Campus Features

Exceptional Care for Children (ECC) is a 31-bedroom pediatric Skilled Nursing Facility located in Newark, DE that serves as a home for up to forty-six children at any given time. ECC practices a multidisciplinary approach of caring for the whole child by providing social, emotional and development opportunities through daily therapeutic programming that includes onsite therapy, education, and enrichment therapy.

Our beautiful campus features:


Children’s Bedrooms

ECC houses thirty-one, semi-private children’s bedrooms, each featuring hand-painted murals. Each bedroom features a private bathroom and nearly all bedrooms have balcony access.

Common Areas and Dining Room

Each floor of our Clinical Building features a Living Room where our children can interact, relax and watch a movie, read a book or play a game. Our Dining Room is housed on our first floor and families and guests are welcome to order meals and snacks from our full-service kitchen. Families and volunteers alike visit with our children in these common areas.

Early Education Classroom

On-Site Classrooms

ECC houses three on-site classrooms for children who cannot attend outbound school due to age, development status or health. Our onsite classrooms are operated by the Christina School District and staffed by teachers and paraprofessionals who provide a structured curriculum to meet a child’s needs.


Landscaped Grounds

Located on nearly 20-wooded acres, Exceptional Care for Children is surrounded by beautiful landscaped gardens, a walking trail, adaptive playground, gazebo and retention pond.

Nurses Station

Clinical Education Skills Lab

This clinical education training centers allows for ongoing staff educational opportunities in order to meet the demands of advancing medical technology. Additionally, family training opportunities are provided in this space as ECC believes that Family Center Care is critical to a child’s success.

Beauty Shop

You feel your best when you look your best! In order to allow our children to look their best, a contracted beautician visits weekly to cut children’s hair, for those who wish to partake.
