Oregon has data for all regulated programs on characteristics of child care that research has found to predict quality. These conditions are associated with how the program interacts with children and families. When these conditions, known as structural indicators of quality, are strong, there is a greater likelihood that interactions and activities will support children’s development.
Oregon partners collect data from all regulated child care and early education facilities and produce annual reports on the following structural indicators: education and step levels, training, center teacher compensation (wages and benefits), retention and accreditation by a nationally recognized accrediting body.
The 2018 report is the most current available.
In addition to the state overview, you can find detail for all counties or Early Learning Hubs.
