South Coast Regional Early Learning Hub
The South Coast Regional Early Learning Hub promotes the alignment of programs and resources for children 0-6 from Reedsport to Brookings by providing quality supports, sharing resources, and identifying community goals in collaboration with parents, early learning professionals, educators, healthcare and social service providers, and community members.
Coos, Curry, and Coastal Douglas Counties working together so families can be healthy and strong, and children can enter kindergarten ready to learn.
The South Coast Regional Early Learning (SCREL) Hub is one of 16 early learning hubs across the state of Oregon. From Reedsport to Brookings we support the alignment of programs for young children and their families, so they have the resources they need to thrive. We work within and across sectors to promote equity and systems change in our region. Our vision is a community where:
1. The Early Learning System is Aligned, Coordinated, and Family-Centered
2. Children are Raised in Healthy, Stable, and Attached Families
3. Children arrive ready for Kindergarten
Some of the ways we work to fulfill our vision include:
Coordinated Enrollment: The SCREL Hub is leading the Coordinated Enrollment Process for the new Preschool Promise slots in our region. We are working with families to find programs that best meet their family's needs, and with providers to ensure all programs have full enrollment.
P-3 (Prenatal to Third Grade) Coordination: Our P-3 efforts are focused on research-based strategies that strengthen relationships between early learning providers, elementary schools, and families, to build a strong continuum of support and learning for children from birth through early elementary school.
Home Visiting Systems Coordination: We are working to connect home visiting programs to build regional practices that strengthen and expand programs, support home visiting professionals, and increase awareness and participation in home visiting programs.
Community Investment Funds: We invest funds we receive from the Early Learning Division in collaborative and innovative local projects designed to fill gaps in services, reduce inequities, and create an aligned and coordinated local early learning system.
Our Governance Council is called the Steering Committee. This diverse group includes representatives across multiple sectors including Early Care and Education, K-12, Health, Business, and Social and Human Services. The Steering Committee meets on the first Tuesday of the month and welcomes the public to join.
