The theme for the 2014 Center on Early Learning Fall Conference was "Early Learning System: Stronger Together." The event, which was held in October at the Western Oregon University campus, focused on the partnerships in early learning and child care across Oregon, from the state level all the way to individual child care programs. Attendees included 121 early learning professionals, 26 early learning agencies/organizations, and 45 presenters and session leaders.

The opening key note speech was delivered by Megan Irwin, acting director of the Early Learning Division of the Oregon Department of Education. During the two day event, participants attended a number of sessions conducted by presenters from multiple state, local and private agencies that all aim to improve the care and education of young children in Oregon.
