Who We Are
The mission of the Early Learning Division is to support all of Oregon’s young children and families to learn and thrive. We value equity, making a positive impact for children and families, dedication, integrity and collective wisdom all to benefit Oregon children and families.
We work as an integrated team focused on: Child Care, Early Learning Programs and Cross Systems Navigation, and Policy and Research.
How We Started
As part of the 40/40/20 education goal and Governor Kate Brown’s vision for a seamless education system from birth through college, the Early Learning Division came together as a collective of people from different units. We were put together to focus on the future of children.
