WELCOME TO ECC!

We can’t wait to have you join us for an in-person tour in the future when we lift our COVID-19 visitor restrictions. In the meantime, tour our beautiful nearly 20-acre campus virtually by flipping through the images below.

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 house 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.

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, an adaptive playground and a gazebo and retention pond.

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.
