Portland Circle of Friends and Family is Now Enrolling for 2011-2012 School Year

Who are we?

Portland Circle of Friends and Family Preschool has been in existence as a cooperative preschool in Portland, Oregon since the fall of 1996. The preschool is operated by parents and continues to provide a valuable education service, at a low cost, to families within the community.

Mission Statement

Portland Circle of Friends and Family Preschool serves young children by providing a developmentally appropriate play-based program, which builds high self-esteem and encourages problem solving skills.

Our Philosophy

Circle of Friends offers an experiential hands-on learning environment, encouraging independence, positive social interactions and meaningful learning experiences.

We believe in helping children build high self-esteem in a non-competitive atmosphere, an atmosphere where personal challenges are valued as a natural happening from which we learn. We believe that helping children learn to accept what is beautifully unique about themselves, others and the world around them, is of primary importance.
