The division works to support Oregon’s young children and families, so they will have opportunities to learn and thrive. With a vision for a seamless education system from birth through college, the division was created in 2013 to focus on the future of children.
The division’s work includes supporting safe early learning environments, improving the health and development of young children, ensuring children are entering school ready to learn, helping parents gain access to affordable, quality child care and helping to develop a professional early learning workforce.
