Early Learning Coalition of Pinellas County, Inc.
It is well known that early education & school-age care help to prepare children for kindergarten and ensure academic success. The ELC partners with over 500 preschools, family child care homes and school age care providers to deliver education and enrichment programs that set a lifelong trajectory. The ELC supports parents in preparing their children for kindergarten by making quality early learning programs affordable and accessible. Additionally, ELC supports providers through training, coaching and curriculum supports. When our children succeed, our whole community benefits. Right now, our community is struggling to “reopen”. These are difficult times and our families and providers alike are faced with impossible choices to protect children, preserve their careers and provide essential services. We don’t profess to have all the answers, but know that we are in this together. The ELC is committed to stabilizing our early learning workforce, rebuilding capacity in child care and assisting families as they contend with the pandemic.
