Early Learning Division News ReleaseThe Early Learning Division to Launch Website Promoting Brain Building in Children
(Salem, Ore.) – The Early Learning Division with the Oregon Department of Education is launching a website, Brain Building Oregon, to promote brain building in children from birth to five years old. The new site features 12 resources that are meant to serve as helpful examples for parents and caregivers who are supporting their children and getting them ready for kindergarten. Besides parents and caregivers, the website will also prove to be beneficial to early learning educators who are looking to add brain science into their work.

During these early years, the groundwork is being laid for skills in literacy, language, math, and more.
