We believe in building a community with our child care providers.  Our monthly Provider Learning and Networking “PLAN” meetings are an opportunity for providers to collaborate, exchange ideas and provide feedback on current events impacting the provider community. You’ll also receive updates from the ELC Broward leadership team, community members and partners on topics that impact you, such as early care, education legislation and information relating to School Readiness and the Voluntary Pre-kindergarten program.
