Thrive by Five Pinellas

Thrive by Five Pinellas (TBFP) is a collective impact approach to ensure an equitable, accessible, responsive and accountable early childhood system that will increase the percentage of children in our community ready for kindergarten. The Early Learning Coalition of Pinellas County is working with diverse partners throughout the community to achieve a multi-faceted common vision, ensuring that children, families, schools, and the community are aligned in supporting the development of young children. The Foundation support for the initiative is a $538,625 grant over a three-year period.
