South Coast Regional Early Learning Hub


Coverage Area: Coos and Curry counties

Vision: It is with a collaborative spirit that Southern Oregon Coast will move into the next phase of developing a system for early learning services inclusive of human, fiscal and community capital from Reedsport to Brookings.This process will begin with our Comprehensive Children’s Budget for the SCREL and continue to develop with the goals of having children ready for kindergarten, raised in stable and supportive families and having systems that are effective and integrated. Our most vulnerable population, our children, will only succeed with strong systems that share vision, resources and ultimately the responsibility for outcomes.We are charged with changing the trajectory of the 795 kindergarten students who will be the Class of 2025 from a graduation rate of 65-70 percent to 100 percent. This outcome will be accomplished with all sectors of each community in our region working toward collective outcomes to effect change.

Purpose: Our purpose is to develop a system that provides positive outcomes for children and families in our region which includes:

  • System integration and development across all sectors of our communities; assessment of current services for children ages 0 through 6 with strengths, gaps, overlaps and outcomes that focus our development of a comprehensive menu of choices for families; effective service delivery; Family Resource Manager functions being assessed and defined; cross-sector outcomes developed with implementation and utilization of developmental screenings (Age sand Stages Questionnaire-III); cultivating a strong Hub Steering Committee with inclusion of all6-sectors represented and providing Board training opportunities; continue to provide existing services support while transitioning to more regionalized services in the following years; relationship building within our communities and with regional partners focusing on a unified vision of the services children and their families require to achieve targeted outcomes.
  • Enhance development of regionalized services for children ages 0 through 6 inclusive of new, developing or existing outcome-based programs by providing: training opportunities, collaboration, mentoring/monitoring, and resource sharing to be successful; implementation of a data base system that is accessible by all partners within our target population, is cross-sector friendly and provides the data required to achieve measurable outcomes; development/attainment of fiscal resources through in-kind, grant and community fundraising opportunities that help systems continue services beyond the scope of our State/Federal biennial budget to achieve targeted outcomes.
