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.

We've moved to our new permanent office!

We've moved our office to a NEW, PERMANENT, MORE CONVENIENT location! Our new office is on the Third Floor of the Treasure Health Building, 5000 Dunn Road, in Fort Pierce (on the corner of Midway Road and Dunn) with regular office hours of 8:00 am - 5:00 pm Monday through Friday. 

Our phone numbers and extensions have all remained the same.  Reach us at 772-595-6424.
