Our mission is to empower children, families, and educators to use language - in all its forms - to develop relationships that enrich their personal lives and inspire positive change in the world. We do this by offering the highest quality classes for children & families, workshops for new parents, language & cultural campsand coaching & consulting services for educators related to Sign Language and Spanish language & Latin American culture.

Portland Early Learning Project is the realization of Christina Webb-Schabow and Kara DeGiovanni's shared love of language and its profound impact on a child's development; not only cognitive, social, psychological, and academic development, but especially their overall quality of life and confidence to participate in their larger world.
