The Learning Line
Call Now! 813-259-6415
This HOTLINE 813-259-6415 is supported by the Quality Early Education System (QEES), Conscious Awareness Learning Model (CALM) and Early Literacy Matters Program (ELM).
It’s specifically set up for all Hillsborough County Preschool Providers, Family Child Care Homes and their families (with children ages birth to 5).
Here’s how it works:
Call the hotline and leave a message. Your call will be directed to the early childhood specialist that will return your call to help meet your specific needs.
You will be given one-on-one guidance and provided age appropriate resources to meaningful learning experiences to help children stay engaged and continue learning during this uncertain/transitional time. The resources will range from social-emotional regulation, math, science and literacy.
We know the tremendous challenges early childhood providers and families are facing during this unprecedented time. It is our mission to help keep providers, children and families resilient, connected and learning. This will make us stronger as we work together with our beloved community.
