Thank you for your support!

ELCAC provides enriching early learning opportunities for children from birth to five years old ensuring that children will begin school ready to learn. Through collaboration, our Coalition uses an integrated service system linking decision makers, families, early childhood educators, and business leaders together to make certain that all of the young children living in our community receive the care and enriching learning opportunities they need to succeed in school and later in life.

Tenure and Professional Development Incentive (TPDI)


ELCAC recognizes the essential role that teachers and caregivers play in the lives of the children we serve. The TPDI stipend is offered annually to eligible teachers who work in centers that serve children enrolled in the School Readiness program.
