Programs & Initiatives
The Lane Early Learning Alliance is partnering with the Kids in Transition to School (KITS) program to create measurable increases in children’s kindergarten readiness, with a focus on improving alignment between early learning programs and early elementary school.
- KITS targets the pivotal transition to kindergarten by providing children with essential school readiness skills in early literacy, math, and approaches to learning and also equips parents with tools to support their child’s transition.
"...Devoting resources to early learning programs is the most cost effective and high-yield investment we can make as a state...Children who arrive at Kindergarten ready to succeed are more likely to read at grade level in third grade, graduate high school on time, and move on successfully in life."− Governor John Kitzhaber
