A Message from our President:

Dear Friends:

We welcome the New Year with a renewed sense of hope as we look forward to the opportunity to support the children and families we all serve.  In 2019 we will boost our efforts to work with our community and state partners to improve the quality of early learning programs and outcomes for children.

Every child should have the opportunity to enter kindergarten ready to learn. This only happens when that child attends an early learning program that provides all the necessary building blocks for successful learning.  In support of that goal, we plan to expand a pilot started last year in Monroe County to increase enrollment of 4-year-olds in the VPK program.

When we all work together, we can ensure that children in Miami-Dade and Monroe Counties have access to high-quality early learning programming that sets them up for future academic success.

Wishing everyone a New Year filled with health and prosperity.

As always, we thank you for your partnership and encourage you to follow us on FacebookTwitter, and Instagram for up-to-date information on our programs and events. 


Evelio Torres
