Peninsula Children's Learning Center's mission is to provide high-quality, affordable childcare and education as well as family support programs that contribute to the vitality of North and Northeast Portland. Peninsula's unique economically and racially integrated program is built on a foundation of positive relationships with and between diverse children and families.
Here at Children's Song we provide a mixed age setting for children three months to six years. We offer children respect and support as competent beings to play, learn, and grow, providing them with a play-based nurturing environment that encourages them to explore their world and develop naturally into lifelong learners.
ChildRoots is a progressive and thoughtful learning community in the heart of Portland. We make space for loud, exuberant play, plan for puddles, and take time for independence. We maintain nurturing and beautiful environments where children are treated with compassion, deep respect, and love. We strive to empower children to be their true, authentic selves. Through wonder, experimentation, and play, ChildRoots kids develop flexibility, resilience, and confidence.
