Welcome and thank you for your interest!
The Early Learning Coalition of Alachua County serves as a resource for families and childcare providers. Our mission is to ensure that all children in our community have the chance to participate in enriching opportunities that allow them to explore, create, play, and grow. By working towards this goal, we believe that all children will reach their full potential. Our coalition uses an integrated service system that links parents, educators, policy-makers, and volunteers together to ensure that children receive the early education they need to succeed in school and in life beyond graduation. Since we are a non-profit organization, you can trust that our mission is addressed with benevolence.
Neuroscience and behavioral research guides our practice towards continuous quality improvement and early investment for all children in Alachua County. High quality care incorporates both academic and non academic learning opportunities to support the whole child.
