ELC's Group 2 has been reading the books in the How to Train Your Dragon series since the beginning of the school last year (2011-2012). This year we continued where we left off.

Florida continues to make great strides in providing affordable health insurance for our children. In the past two years, Florida’s uninsured children rate has dropped from 16.7 percent to 12.7 percent. With the new “Kids Oughta Be Covered” campaign recently launched by the Florida KidCare program, we hope to continue to see the number of uninsured children decrease. To find out if your child is eligible, visit the Florida KidCare website or call 888-540-5437.
