Early Learning Division

Oregon Department of Education Early Learning Division  

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.
