Mission:

The Early Literacy Learning Model (ELLM) confronts the effects of poverty on school readiness, particularly in the area of literacy, in at-risk Pre-K classrooms and childcare centers throughout Collier County.  ELLM is designed to close the school readiness gap for at-risk 4-year-old children in Collier County.

 


 

Naples Children & Education Foundation (NCEF) selects Blueprint Partners that exemplify the highest levels of efficacy and accountability. The Early Literacy & Learning Model (ELLM) is a partnership with Florida Gulf Coast University that provides leadership for NCEF’s Early Learning Initiative, a groundbreaking effort that brings nonprofits together to achieve a greater collective impact.
