The Gorge Early Learning Coalition is active in both Skamania and Klickitat County in Southwest Washington State in the heart of the beautiful Columbia River Gorge. We are a group of educators, librarians, child care providers, business owners and parents that have been working together since 2007.
Parents are a child's best teacher, and we support that 100%. Having parents and caregivers realize how easy (and important!) it is to provide their child the skills for learning, whether in a public school or at home, is behind our mission of preparing our youngest children for success by connecting families and communities.
