We build a better tomorrow by investing in children today
Did you know that quality early education programs can produce higher IQ’s, boost future academic and economic achievement and even help prevent incidences of chronic diseases and obesity in adulthood? Early learning programs also build socio-emotional traits which have greater effects on later life outcomes than most other cognitive skills a child will learn!
Aside from the obvious benefits to our children – there are economic incentives too. Every public dollar spent on preschool returns $7 through increased productivity and savings on public assistance and criminal justice. In a 2010 report, the Institute for a Competitive Workforce found that for every dollar invested in pre-K today, savings range from $2.50 to as much as $17 in the years ahead.
More than anyone, the Early Learning Coalition of Hillsborough County understands the impact of quality early education programs and continually works to support both our children’s and community’s future.
Because every child deserves a Promising start
We work to provide children with a foundation from which all things are possible. Investing in outstanding early learning and development programs cultivates the skills, academic achievement and economic prosperity needed for a vibrant future. Whether you are a parent, grandparent, teacher, neighbor or business owner, you play a vital role in ensuring quality education opportunities for children in our community.

Their futures are invaluable
Thousands of little miracles are born into poverty every day and aren’t given the opportunities to succeed. If we invest in programs that promote learning beginning at birth, the statistics will change, the stories will change, and the future will change.Watch the Video
