NOTICE: WE’RE COMING BACK!! We will begin training again in September, but dates will be limited to 2 or 3 per month. We have a couple of new workshops too! If you are interested, please be sure to contact me ASAP to book a session. I’ll come to your center!
Welcome to Early Learning Tools NW – A Place for information about Early Learning and to find training opportunities throughout Oregon.
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 the years!
I am a certified Master trainer through the Oregon Center for Career Development. Click here to see what’s going on right now!

Instructor was knowledgeable. I felt the level of her involvement and getting people involved in the conversation was good - one of the best in awhile.
Helen is an amazing trainer! She was so thorough with the information, I really felt like I walked away with a way better understanding of how to implement the curriculum! It was amazing for discussions and a very supportive environment. Everything was explained in immense detail. Our trainer Helen was so supportive and offered very helpful feedback on our lesson plans! Thank you Helen!
You need to move around more during the training. But I enjoyed the content
I really enjoyed your calm presentation style.
Very good mix of information given & hands on learning.
You were excellent – one of the best trainers I’ve had.
Learned a lot about child development and how being outdoors helps a child grow in healthy ways. Loved the nature tape bracelet! Wish I could have a cool outdoor are at my center, but learned some fun ways to bring it to what we have.
