TO: RFHF Participants and Supervisors

Hi all

I just wanted to let you know that we have sent information about RFHF
participating programs and the  Every Child Ready to Read (ECRR) curriculum
and training sessions to the state Child Care and Head Start  offices. 

They  have been provided with:

.         a one page summary of the ECRR curricula including a description
of the three workshops, the Oregon Registry Set and Core Knowledge Category,
and the link to the list of Oregon Registry ECRR Standardized Trainers, plus
a current list of those trainers by county.

.         a one page newsletter article which provides a summary of the ECRR
curriculum as training for child care providers as well as early literacy
training/resources that participating library staff could provide to

.         a flyer outlining early literacy activities and resources
available at the library with a link to find their local library. Included
is a listing of all of the library and Healthy Start programs who have
participated as of March 2010 in Reading for Healthy Families as possible
local resources.

The state offices will forward this information along to local Child Care
Resource and Referral offices; Head Starts and early Head Starts as well as
send the information to Child Care newsletters.

Hopefully, this will be the start of some further early literacy training
and collaborations. So, don't be surprised if you receive a call from a
local Head Start or child care program regarding ECRR or RFHF.

Please let me know if you have any questions.

Thank you.
