Zero to Three has an excellent article summarizing early childhood policies of 2009 online at: http://tiny.cc/587PR.

Two points of interest in Oregon:
 9 applications for Early Head Starts in Oregon have already been approved to receive federal funding and are in the early stages of planning.  The approved programs will be announce early in 2010 so keep your eyes on the news!
This Summer and Fall the Oregon Center for Career Development in Childhood Care and Education distributed approximately $700,000 in federal stimulus funds to childcare providers taking professional development classes.

Subject: Interesting Information

Hi Katie,

I just came across this information from Zero to Three and found it interesting and hopeful for support of early literacy.  You may have already seen it, but I thought it was at least a bit encouraging.


We'll be looking forward to the Ready to Read Grant information on what other libraries are doing!
