About Creative Minds Portland

Creative Minds Learning Centers, Portland offers nurturing childcare and preschool programs for families in NE Portland. This school served as a preschool in the community for over thirty years prior to us opening our doors, but needed major remodeling before it became the first Creative Minds location in 2000. Our preschool center features two cottages, a fenced playground, and an outdoor gardening area.

Preschool Programs

Our Educational Philosophy

We take a balanced approach to early childhood education and have created a preschool environment where children find joy in learning. We are focused on the social, emotional, and intellectual development of each child in our care and we work towards the acquisition of meaningful and useful academic skills.

We give each child the tools to succeed so that when they enter more formal educational systems later in life, they have the skills and confidence to thrive. Our preschool and childcare programs encourage positive relationships and the development of critical thinking skills, which evolve through experimentation, exploration, and play.

Family Involvement

Communication between parents and school is a critical aspect of a successful early educational experience. We have a Parent Orientation prior to your child’s start date, parent conferences each April, and constantly provide feedback on your child’s development.

We have an open door policy and encourage your involvement in our preschool community. Many parents stop by to read to the children, help in the garden, participate in school events, or join us on field trips.
