Exciting Expansion for Early Childhood Education
July 15, 2015
Adelante Mujeres is excited to announce that our Early Childhood Education (ECE) program is gearing up to serve more children. Our new partnership with the Oregon Child Development Coalition’s (OCDC) Head Start program will allow us to more than double the number of children we serve and expand the services we provide.
To accommodate the growth, we will be moving the classrooms to a new location at OCDC’s building on Enterprise Circle in Hillsboro. The two organizations have a long history of partnership, which began when we shared a federal Even Start grant over ten years ago.
“We are very grateful to have leased space at Saint Anthony’s Catholic Church for the last 12 years. Now, we look forward to moving into a space with classrooms specifically designed for infants, toddlers, and preschool children,” says Adelante Mujeres Executive Director Bridget Cooke.
In addition to the new space, the partnership will allow us to serve infants, teach year-round, offer physical, dental, and mental health services, and provide meals. Read More.
