Dear Early Learning Partners, Parents, and Caregivers: 

The health, safety, and overall well-being of your family and our ELCPBC family is our primary focus. In response to the rapidly changing situation with the Coronavirus disease (COVID-19) and to protect the safety and welfare of those we serve from the spread of COVID-19, the Early Learning Coalition of Palm Beach County has decided to suspend in-person interactions at all of our office locations and field locations. 

Effective, Wednesday, March 18th at noon, we will suspend in-person client appointments, and all Coalition operations and services will be provided remotely.

All upcoming public meetings will continue to be publicly noticed as usual but will be held via teleconference/webinar. 

While our locations will be temporarily closed to the public, our ongoing operations to serve the children, families, and early learning programs of Palm Beach County are operating at full capacity remotely. The same attention to detail and customer service will be offered via online, telephone, and virtual appointments. 

We are here for you:
  • To make a virtual appointment for re-determination, child care applications, or transfer requests, please call our Family Resource Line: 561.514.3300.
  • Apply online:
  • For any questions about child care in Palm Beach County during and after this time, call our Family Resource Line: 561.514.3300

To our dedicated providers, we have activated our Provider Warm Line to answer your questions about COVID-19 and child care in Palm Beach County. Please call: 1.877.767.4659.  

We know these are very trying times for our community, and the Early Learning Coalition wants to ensure that accessing and maintaining our services does not create an obstacle for anyone. We are here and available to you. Please let us know if there is anything we can do to assist you during this time. We appreciate your consideration and patience as we all try to do what is best to protect our community and flatten the curve during this health crisis. 

Continue to communicate with us:
We will update our website ( ) frequently and provide daily social media posts with information about local resources for families, tools and ideas for parents to continue early learning at home, and essential information related to COVID-19. 

Be well, stay safe, and we will get through this together.
