Welcome to Early Childhood CARES

Clarification 4/5/20:

All of the Early Childhood CARES classrooms and in person home visiting services are suspended at this time. We are waiting for further guidance from the Oregon Department of Education about when we will resume in-person services. All of our services will be provided remotely and will include options for phone, mail, email, paper/packet drop-offs or a virtual meeting platform (i.e., Zoom, Facetime or Skype). Please check back for further updates.

Dear Early Childhood CARES Families,

We are thinking about you during these very challenging and uncertain times and hope all are staying safe and healthy. Early Childhood CARES staff are working very hard to design ways to support you with your child’s learning during the next weeks and months. Everyone returns to work on Monday, April 6, 2020. Expect to hear from your service coordinator this coming week for a check in and a conversation about how best to support your child and stay connected.

In these times of great uncertainty and stress, we want you to know that we deeply care about you and your family and will do all in our power to continue our commitment to you

Take care and we will be in touch.
