$225,000 LA tax dollars have been dedicated for Early Education Programs in Pointe Coupée since 2016.

The second annual School Readiness Tax Credit (SRTC) fundraising campaign was another success!!  SRTC contributions made by qualifying businesses at the end of 2017 brought $120,000 LA tax dollars that will be invested directly in our community, not to the state fund.  These tax dollars will provide high-quality early care, development and education programs for children birth to four and their families. 

The investments will be dedicated to continue developing a professional certified early care workforce in our community.  Experienced certified early education professionals train and mentor our early child care workforce weekly.  All provided at no cost through the benefit of our community’s investments. Through high-quality care and education, our professional workforce will get our youngest children emotionally and academically ready for kindergarten.
