A coalition of early childhood advocates, including Children’s Institute, has identified early childhood programs and services that should be funded if the legislature can raise additional revenue. The priorities include investments in high-quality preschool (Oregon Head Start Pre-Kindergarten and Preschool Promise), early intervention services for children with diagnosed developmental delays and disabilities (EI/ECSE), voluntary home visiting services, and more. Read our 2017 Legislative Priorities fact sheet for a complete list of early childhood legislative priorities.
