Early Learning Hub releases Regional Data Book for community

The Early Learning Hub of Linn, Benton and Lincoln Counties, housed at Linn-Benton Community College, has released a Regional Data Book intended to guide and support strategic decision-making by its Governing Board and community members.

This data book presents health, education, social and economic factors for our target population of children ages 0-6. This consolidated repository of early childhood data will be useful in increasing family stability, improving kindergarten readiness, and ensuring service coordination that is equitable, and culturally and linguistically appropriate for our region.

The data book also addresses challenges facing our region’s youngest children who are at risk of arriving at kindergarten unprepared. Early learning community partners can use the data to help them better-serve children and families.

The Regional Data Book is available for no charge on the Early Learning Hub website. For more information, contact Kristi Collins, Early Learning Hub director, at collink@linnbenton.edu.
