A child’s earliest experiences–at home, school, and in the community–set the stage for lifelong success. Through our School Readiness (SR), Voluntary Prekindergarten (VPK), and Child Care Resource and Referral (CCR&R) programs, we work to ensure that Pinellas County families are supported, and their children have access to the resources needed to be ready to enter kindergarten and thrive.
Child care providers are the community’s backbone, preparing young children for school and life.
Early Learning Coalition staff elevates and supports early care educators with resources, services, and programs offered by the Professional Development Institute and other contract support.
