Welcome

Welcome to Early Learning Tools NW – A Place for information about Early Learning and to find training opportunities in the Oregon Willamette Valley area.

Early Learning providers are constantly evolving.  Each day is as different as the children in our care.   It is this continual change that makes it so important for us to find out what is happening in the world of children.  Staying abreast of the new studies and laws that have an effect on child care and early education helps us to be better at what we do – and what we do can make an impact on a life forever.

Hi, I’m Helen Fern.  I’ve been working in the field of Child Care and Early Learning for over 35 years.  It’s not my job, it’s my passion.   I am a step 10 in the Oregon Professional Development Registry with a Master’s Degree in Leadership – and I’m excited to share with you what I have learned through years!

Currently, I am a certified Community trainer and all the training offered is set one in the Oregon Registry Online (ORO).   Click here to see what’s going on right now!

If you are interested in having a session at your site, either send me an email request or give me a call.
