You’re the support system for so many South Coast families. And we’ve got your back.

Our children, families, and economy depend on our Early Childhood Programs and professionals. As an early childcare professional, you work hard to make sure our children are nurtured, taught, inspired, and ready for their next steps after leaving your care. South Coast Early Learning is here to support you so you can continue to care for children while taking care of yourself. 


The Childcare Accelerator Program prioritizes LatinX/Hispanic entrepreneurs and under-resourced community members with a focus on women, providing them with childcare business start-up tools and expansion technical assistance services in efforts to diversify childcare services throughout Southwestern Oregon (Coos, Curry, and Coastal Douglas Counties).
