Oregon’s Early Learning and Kindergarten Guidelines are for everyone who interacts with children ages three to six. Through alignment of and, in some cases, adjustments or additions to the goals and progressions identified in the Head Start Early Learning Outcomes Framework and the Kindergarten grade-level standards identified in the Common Core State Standards, this document offers a shared view of and common vocabulary for child development and learning from age 3 through the end of kindergarten.
The Early Learning and Kindergarten Guidelines include a continuum of development and learning in five domains:
- Approaches to Learning
- Social-Emotional Development
- Language and Communication
