Children’s Institute, along with partners from Regional Educational Laboratory Northwest and @orearlylearning, hosted a virtual presentation to elevate the importance of intentionally focusing on early literacy strategies for early child care providers, educators, and families.

📚 The presentation also revealed a new library of evidence-based early literacy resources and shared the latest funding updates from the state.

We’re always so thrilled to connect with Early School Success (ESS) teams and celebrate their wins! Spring showers certainly didn’t put a halt to ESS Cross-Network gathering on May 2, held at the Willamette Education Service District in Salem, Oregon. It was pure joy in the room, as school teams focused on play as a way to engage in creative reflection and to better understand the perspective of their students.🌸🌈🎨
