As an Early Learning Hub, the Lane Early Learning Alliance is able to provide state funding to programs that support the health and well-being of families, and early education and kindergarten transition programs for children across Lane County.
Bridging communities and schools to assist families in supporting their children’s educational success.
There are Family Resource Centers (FRCs) housed within school districts throughout Lane County. FRCs refer families to resources, provide basic needs supplies like food, clothing, and diapers, help families navigate the public school system, and provide parenting programming like Raising A Reader, Story-Times, and LaneKids Parenting Education. Visit LaneKids.org for a list of locations and contacts.
The Lane Early Learning Alliance is partnering with the Kids in Transition to School (KITS) program to give children a big boost to their early literacy, self-regulation, and social skills through a system of positive teaching and behavior change strategies.
KITS also builds strong families by providing parents with tools and skills to teach and advocate for their children at home, in school, and in the community.
