Looking to Become a Coalition Provider?

The Early Learning Coalition of St. Lucie County contracts with child care centers and family child care homes in good standing with the Department of Children and Families (DCF). Our contracted providers offer Coalition children quality early learning experiences in a caring environment. They include legally operating child care providers throughout St. Lucie County.  
 
Providers meeting program requirements, Coalition criteria and quality standards may be eligible to contract with the Coalition as a School Readiness (SR) and/or Voluntary Prekindergarten (VPK) provider. Once contracted, a provider must continually meet state standards. The Coalition provides quality initiatives such as training and technical assistance to help providers meet these standards. 
 
All providers applying for a contract with the Coalition must meet all DCF requirements.

Glow Bowling Birthday Party

Join the folks at the Early Learning Coalition of St. Lucie County for a Glow Bowling Birthday Party at Superplay in Port St. Lucie on Wednesday, July 31, from 7-9 PM. Your $10 admission includes two games of bowling and bowling shoes, birthday cake & lemonade, all to celebrate the 20th birthday of the Early Learning Coalition, in support of early childhood education, in St. Lucie County.

No bowling pledge sheets needed here as this is a P-A-R-T-Y not a bowl-a-thon, but you can bring the whole family out for glowingly great time.

We want you to party like it's 1999, which is when the ELC was established to promote early childhood education and administer the free Voluntary Pre-K program in Florida.
