The Lane Early Learning Alliance is working to improve our community’s early learning system by building on existing resources to achieve better results for young children. It seeks to ensure young children and families thrive by making programs and supports more available, accessible and effective. Using the theory of Collective Impact, we believe that bringing together early learning providers, K-12 education, healthcare providers, human and social services, local businesses, and parents and families will allow us to develop a system to best meet the needs of all children and families in our community.


Vision & Goals
