Early Learning Hub (ELH)

Vision: In Every Community, In Every Home, For Every Child, A Better Future

Our mission is to create a high quality early learning system that integrates and coordinates efforts to ensure all children are ready for kindergarten, ready to read by 1st grade and reading at grade level by the end of the 3rd grade. The following committees support the work of Early Childhood.

Councils and Committees


The Early Learning Hub Governance Council is a decision making body of the the Clackamas County Early Learning Hub. Our goal is to improve the early learning system. Representatives from early care and education, health and wellness, K-12 and higher education, parents, community organizations, and businesses serve on this committee.

The mission is to create a high quality early learning system that integrates and coordinates efforts to ensure all children are ready for Kindergarten, and reading at grade level by the end of the 3rd grade. The Governance council meets the second Tuesday of each month, except August, 8:30 a.m. to 10:30 a.m. Meeting locations vary.

Preschool Promise

Preschool Promise (PP) is an early learning program, funded by the State Early Learning Division, that provides high quality, culturally relevant preschool opportunities to children ages 3-5. To qualify, families must live at, or below, 200% of the federal poverty guidelines. 

The primary goals for this program are to:

  • Support young children to thrive and succeed in school and life.
  • Allow families to choose the preschool which best meets their needs.
  • Provide a common set of high standards to promote school readiness and active family engagement.
  • Provide culturally and linguistically responsive services and opportunities for underrepresented families.
  • Work with local Head Start programs, K-12 schools, child care programs, and community based-organizations.

Our Early Learning Hub was 1 of 8 Early Learning Hubs within the state to receive Preschool Promise funding. Our PP funding serves 18 children at Sandy Grade School, and 10 children at the Oregon Child Development Coalition site in Mulino.
