Education cost money,

 but then so does ignorance.
-Claus Moser

 

 

 A teacher affects eternity;

 he can never tell where

his influence stops.

- Henry B Adams

 

 

You can teach a student a
lesson for a day; but if you can

teach him to learn by creating
curiosity, he will continue the

learning process as long as he lives.

- Clay P. Bedford

 

It is in fact a part of the function of education is

to help us escape, not from our own time

— for we are bound by that —

but from the intellectual and emotional

limitations of our time.
T.S. Eliot

South-Central Oregon Early Learning Hub

South-Central  Oregon Early Learning Hub  -  Selected to Lead Regional Early Childhood Coordination Efforts

Douglas Education Service District will be the leader and fiscal agent for the regional partnership of agencies designated by the Oregon Early Learning Council (ELC).  The South-Central Hub was chosen in the first round of competitive applications and will initially coordinate and improve the early learning activities in Douglas and Lake Counties.

Early learning is the focus of a broad-based state and national initiatives and legislation designed to get children ready for kindergarten and make sure children are reading well by third grade.   House Bill 2013, passed by the Oregon legislature in 2012, directs the state Early Learning Council to award up to seven Early Learning Hubs in 2013 and nine more in 2014.

In Douglas County, early learning services are provided by a large number of child care centers, family child care providers, preschools, as well as Family Development Center in Roseburg, Family Relief Nursery in Drain, Healthy Families of Douglas County, Head Start, Umpqua Community College, Douglas County public health, Oregon Department of Human Services, and many others.  The goal of the early learning initiative is to better coordinate these services and while involving faith organizations, businesses, parents, and other community members in this important work.

“This honor recognizes the hard work of our early learning partners over many years and the extensive documentation required in the application process. We are excited about the potential of this new Hub to build on the strong community support for early learning in Douglas and Lake Counties,” said Michael Lasher, Superintendent and Hub administrator.  “Becoming the Early Learning Hub will allow us to coordinate our activities better, improve children’s success in schools, and save money doing it.   It’s a home-run for our region.”
