  • About Us

    As part of the Florida Department of Education, the Office of Early Learning dedicates its people, time and energy to ensuring access, affordability and quality of early learning services for the state’s children and families. Home to more than one million children under age 5, Florida welcomes nearly 600 newborns every day. As many as 700,000 Florida children attend some type of early learning program. We support these children, their families and the child care providers who serve them, through administration of 30 early learning coalitions across the state.
