Our Preschool Facilities

Our preschool center was carefully designed with soothing colors, lots of natural light, age-appropriate equipment in every classroom, and murals painted by our featured artist, Stephen Williams. We have beautiful commercial kitchen with a chef who prepares a healthy lunch every day and snacks in the mid-morning and mid-afternoon. There’s a laundry facility on-site to launder soiled clothes and cloth diapers. This school also features an indoor gross motor skills area for those rainy Oregon days and a community room for enrolled families, which has a comfortable area for nursing mothers.

Our preschool features the same excellent programs embraced at our other schools such as High Reach Curriculum, music and dance, Reggio Emilio inspired art, science, gardening, and drama. We regularly take walks in our local community and offer field trips to educational places such as the Oak Bottom Wildlife Refuge.

Family Involvement

We hope you will become involved by participating in classroom activities, joining us on field trips, and attending school events. Your participation broadens our child care programs and benefits our children and staff in a very special way. Parents are always welcome to visit their children at any time.
