Early Learning

Part of the Florida Department of Education, the Office of Early Learning dedicates its people, time and energy to ensuring access, affordability and quality of early learning services for the state’s children and families.

Florida welcomes nearly 600 newborns every day and is home to more than one million children under the age of 5. As many as 700,000 Florida children attend some type of early learning program. We support these children, their families and the child care providers who serve them, through administration and management of 30 early learning coalitions across the state.


School Readiness Curriculum Approval Process
Legislation requires the Office of Early Learning to adopt a list of approved curricula that meet the School Readiness Program performance standards and to establish a process for reviewing and approving a provider's curriculum to assess whether it meets the standards. The list of curricula approved for use in school readiness programs is available below.
