Infant Toddler State Self-Assessment

Oregon’s Infant Toddler State Self-Assessment

The Oregon Early Learning Division is working with the Oregon Health Authority and other partners across the state to conduct an assessment of infant and toddler policies, funding, and services. The three-part assessment is based on the Infants and Toddlers in the Policy Picture: Self-Assessment Toolkit for States created by the Zero to Three® Policy Center.

Results of the assessment will inform actions to build a stronger system of support in Oregon that honors the needs and choices of families with young children. A final summary of the assessment findings will be shared widely.

To inform this assessment, we need feedback from parents of 0-3 year olds to help us learn about parent experiences and what kind of support parents want and need.

Please participate in our Parent Survey!  To complete the survey in English, click here.  To complete the survey in Spanish, click here.

Survey will close Friday, February 9, 2018

How to get involved

Parent and provider participation and feedback are crucial for the success of this project. We want to learn from parents about the experiences they want for their infants and toddlers, and what it is like to access and participate in supports and services for children ages birth to two years-old. We also want to hear from providers who serve these families about their experiences. There are several ways to get involved and share your experience:

The Parent Survey for Oregon’s Infant Toddler State Self-Assessment is open Wednesday, January 17th thru Friday, February 9, 2018 in English and Spanish.

This survey is being offered to parents of 0-3 year-olds by the Oregon Early Learning Division, in partnership with the Oregon Health Authority and community organizations. The goal of the survey is to learn about parent experiences and what kinds of support parents want and need. Get involved by taking the survey and sharing it with others!

The Stakeholder Online Survey: Would you like to complete an online survey to share your thoughts and/or promote an online survey for providers and partners?   An online survey for individuals, businesses and organizations serving infants and toddlers and their families or working on their behalf will be posted here in February 2018.
