About the Hattiesburg Early Learning Collaborative

The Hattiesburg Early Learning Collaborative is one of only 19 early learning collaboratives in Mississippi. We are the largest early learning collaborative and are funded to serve 329 preschoolers. All 20 HELC classrooms are provided with the same resources, assessments, high-quality curriculum, and experienced teachers. We are dedicated to ensuring that Hattiesburg preschoolers are ready to succeed in kindergarten and beyond.
