Oregon’s Early Learning and Kindergarten Guidelines

The Early Learning and Kindergarten Guidelines align and expand on Oregon’s learning and development standards for children ages three through six in five domains:

  • approaches to learning
  • social-emotional development
  • language and communication
  • literacy
  • mathematics

The Guidelines give early learning professionals and kindergarten teachers a set of common goals and vocabulary for children’s learning and development, while also supporting developmentally appropriate, culturally and linguistically responsive practices.

The Guidelines in English, Spanish, Russian, Vietnamese and Chinese, as well as a set of supporting resources, can be downloaded at the Early Learning and Kindergarten Guidelines web page.
