Kids at Hope

Kids at Hope is a national not-for-profit organization committed to the belief that all children can succeed, NO EXCEPTIONS! Its cultural framework is designed to rally all caring adults around the strengths, assets, talents, intelligence and characteristics each child and youth possess and to demonstrate how those skills can support their future success. The Kids at Hope movement is about seeing children at hope rather than at risk and creating a culture that supports its children through action, consistency and inclusiveness. It also ensures that every child has a sustainable relationship with a caring adult who helps them articulate their goals and dreams for the future and provides opportunities for success.
Kids at Hope is an initiative of the Roundtable of St. Lucie County, Inc. The Early Learning Coalition of St. Lucie County is proud to join organizations such as the Children’s Services Council in bringing Kids at Hope to local children.
Coalition employees are trained Kids at Hope "treasure hunters,” adults committed to searching for all the talents, skills and intelligence that exist in all children and youth.
For more information about Kids at Hope, contact Shaniek Maynard, Executive Director, Roundtable of St. Lucie County, at 772-871-5880.



Wait-list for School Readiness Program

The Early Learning Coalition of St. Lucie County will activate a School Readiness wait-list, effective Tuesday 7/9/2019 at 11: 59:00 pm, in order to focus efforts on EFS Modernization true-up for the fiscal year ending 6/30/2019. All applications received prior to this date and time will be processed accordingly. The Coalition expects the true-up process to be completed by mid-August, at which time, we  expect to begin pulling from the wait-list and continuing enrollment efficiently.  
The wait-list applies to the School Readiness Subsidized Childcare Program only and does not affect application for enrollment to the Voluntary Pre-Kindergarten program currently underway.
