Good Beginnings = Great Endings!

The Early Learning Coalition of Marion County is dedicated to providing children and families in our community with access to quality early learning programs that nurture their learning potential and prepare them for their educational success. It is our mission to provide leadership and foster partnerships to optimize a quality early learning environment for our children through child care, voluntary pre-kindergarten and parent education.

Community Stories

Having this opportunity to receive financial assistance for childcare was a gift from God. We were struggling and I’m very thankful. She is learning so much. I could have paid less for her to be at home with a babysitter but I knew she wasn’t going to receive the educational opportunity and the interaction with other children.
