Engage. Inspire. Elevate.

The Early Learning Coalition of Pinellas County is committed to high-quality early care and early education. We work with families and with childcare producers. We help create high-quality early learning opportunities throughout Pinellas County. We want all children to enter kindergarten ready to succeed - in school as well as in life.

Family Services

A young child’s earliest experiences–at home, at school and in the community–set the stage for lifelong success. Through our SR, VPK, and CCR&R programs, ELC works to ensure that Pinellas County families are supported, and their children have access to the resources needed to be ready to enter school and succeed.

Provider Services

Child care providers work with young children every day to provide early learning opportunities. ELC works to elevate these early care educators with quality resources, services, and programs including the Professional Development Institute, quality programs, and contract support.

Screening & Intervention Services

The Screening & Intervention department receives and interprets screening regularly and has the ability to work one-on-one with children to increase their skills to prepare them for kindergarten. In addition, parents and providers are given pertinent information concerning developmental milestones, behavior management and other topics of interest.
