WHY SUPPORT THE EARLY LEARNING COALITION?
Children are at the heart of all we do. We believe that all children, regardless of circumstance, are capable of educational excellence and personal growth, and we are committed to ensuring school readiness and lifelong success for each one.
We believe children are the future, and our community is an essential part of their road to success. By working together, we can promote education and support children as they become thriving, productive members of society.
We value partnerships and are collaborative in all we do. We work closely with fellow service providers, families, corporations, elected officials, individual and the community at large to promote the importance of early learning and to secure educational opportunities for all children.
We are a champion for children, promoting positive societal and community change. Our staff and community partners are committed to advancing education throughout Miami-Dade and Monroe counties and are set apart by their passion, strength and dedication to children.
