Directors of early learning programs participating in Oregon’s three-year Contracted Slots Pilot program were surveyed at the time the program was launched in the late summer of 2012. The Pilot had a threefold goal of increasing stability of low-income children in high quality programs, supporting employment stability of their parents, and increasing the financial stability of high quality early learning providers. Directors of participating early learning programs were surveyed at the beginning and end of the Pilot’s first year. This report captures director perceptions of the benefits and disadvantages of participation in the Pilot for children and parents and early learning programs at the time the Pilot was being launched.
