Welcome to the Oregon Registry Program!

The Oregon Registry: Pathways for Professional Recognition in Childhood Care and Education is a voluntary, statewide program to document and recognize the professional achievements of people who work in the childhood care and education profession.

The Oregon Registry recognizes two pathways for professional development:

  1. A degree or certificate pathway
  2. A college course credit or community based training pathway

The Oregon Registry recognizes that individuals may use a variety of sources to gain increased knowledge in the core body of knowledge for the profession.
