Preschool Promise

Preschool Promise (PP) is a state funded Early Learning Division program that provides high quality, culturally relevant preschool opportunities to children ages 3 and 4. 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 one of 8 hubs within the state to receive Preschool Promise funding in 2016-2017. Our PP funding serves 18 children at Sandy Grade School, and 8 children at the Oregon Child Development Coalition site in Mulino.
