Important Message from the
Early Learning Coalition of Palm Beach County
Coronavirus (COVID-19) Update
March 23, 2020 @ 11:00AM
Dear Early Learning Provider,

We've received a number of important questions from the Palm Beach County Provider Community. In an effort to communicate more broadly and in a transparent manner, we are hosting a Provider Q&A Webinar on Tuesday, March 24th at 1:00pm.

Warren Eldridge, CEO, of the Early Learning Coalition will be sharing an update and taking your questions. Our goal is to remove the misinformation floating in the provider community, and focus on the facts as we know them today.

Lastly, please understand that you may have questions that we do not have the answers to at this time. We know that the absence of information is frustrating. There are several issues where we are waiting for Office of Early Learning (OEL) for guidance. However, we believe in being as transparent as possible during this time.
 
We hope you will join us. Please share with your teachers and colleagues.

Thank you,

The Early Learning Coalition of Palm Beach County
