The Florida Chamber of Commerce and the Florida Chamber Foundation believe that a quality education is the best way to ensure Florida students can compete in a global economy. Securing Florida’s future over the long term means making the right policy choices in the short term. To help in this arena, the Florida Chamber Foundation’s Business Alliance for Early Learning identifies and tackles the challenges that will help tomorrow’s leaders succeed.
Early childhood education, particularly between ages 0-8, is essential for a child’s development of both cognitive and non-cognitive skills. Preparing our youngest students to learn provides a foundation for future success and helps them develop important skills such as self-discipline, persistence, and cooperation – skills that are essential to their future success and a quality workforce.
The goal of the Business Alliance for Early Learning is to focus on issues impacting children ages 0-8 and to engage businesses, families, and community leaders in securing Florida’s future through quality early education. Connect here.
