The Early Learning Council has launched their beta website (http://oregonearlylearning.com/).  There is information for parents, for communities (i.e. libraries!), about the kindergarten readiness assessment, on activities of the Early Learning Council, and more.

Oregon's Quality Rating & Improvement System (QRIS) website has also launched (http://www.wou.edu/tri/QRIS/index.html). This is primarily a good resource for libraries to know about because the childcare providers you work with will be participating in this program. As childcare providers begin to participate in the QRIS they will need continuing education to improve their rating. The Early Words curriculum, which is based on Every Child Ready to Read, is most appropriate for childcare providers and is currently being updated at the Oregon Registry so keep your eyes open for training of trainer opportunities later this year. The Every Child Ready to Read early literacy curriculum is best used with parents and family, friend, and neighbor providers (people who "babysit" more than once a week for the same child/children in their life).
