Greetings and welcome to the Early Learning Coalition of Pasco and Hernando’s (PHELC) remodeled website! Our mission is to create a supportive network to build the necessary foundation for our children to be successful in school and life. The Coalition is a non-profit organization that administers early learning programs for nearly 13,000 children annually within our communities. The children are served through the Coalition's two main programs - School Readiness, a financial assistance program for working families and the State of Florida's Voluntary Pre-Kindergarten (VPK) program for all 4 and 5-year old children. Through the commitment of our employees, board of directors, and business and community partners, PHELCs programs and supportive services have vastly improved the lives of children and families in both Pasco and Hernando Counties.
We’re glad that you’ve taken a moment to visit our website and we hope that you’ll contact us if we can serve you and your family. If you discover programs or services that may be of assistance to you or someone you know please contact us. You will also see that you can make a meaningful difference in the lives of those we serve whether you are looking to volunteer your time, or donate financially to one of our programs. Please take some time to learn more about us. If you have questions or need to talk with someone directly, please call our main office at 727-233-8291.
