Looking for a Second Child for a Private Waldorf Preschool Class

March 27, 2017

We have a very sensitive sensory girl who is 4.5 and who does not do well in preschool because of the number of children.  Her last preschool teacher (a certified Waldorf teacher) offered to host a two hour, once per week preschool session for her and one other child.  This teacher and her preschool are absolutely amazing!  We are looking for one other child between the ages of 3 and 5 who would join us for this adventure.  Maybe another sensory child like her who struggles with larger groups of children.  Or, a non-sensory child who is quiet and would like the opportunity to experience a beautiful Waldorf school once per week.

We would meet for two hours on Thursday afternoons.  The preschool is on Mt. Scott. 

Please contact Heather at hblankenheim@gmail.com if you are interested.

Join me in creating a playschool for 2-3 year olds!

March 06, 2017

Cyndi Perczek is a creative play specialist who leads co-op preschools for 2-4 year olds. For the past 11 years, she's provided out-of-the box education that allows her and other families the freedom to create early childhood experiences that are both intimate and adventurous. With a BA in theatre and an MS in education, she combines the two to make stories and make- believe the driving force of her curriculum. Interactive storytelling keeps the class on their feet by acting every moment with their voice and body. Cyndi has worked with organizations like Story Pirates, Music Together, Brooklyn Beanstalk, and Spellbound Theatre as a teaching artist and has worked at Montessori schools, daycares, and mommy and me classes as a Spanish teacher. During the summers she leads a detective camp for 5-8 year olds that solve mysteries by finding hidden clues and letters in the outdoors. She is moving to Portland in July and her Brooklyn co-op community is happy to give recommendations and tell you about their experiences with Cyndi. 
 
If you're interested in creating a cooperative playschool with me for the 2017-2018 school year please email me at cyndi.perczek@gmail.com. Thank you! 20160926_105421

Now Accepting applications for 2017-2018 waitlist (4 guaranteed spaces open, availability now), for ages 2.5 years -6 years. Children must be in pull-ups for September 1 2017.

We love our work with children and view every day as an opportunity to see the best that humanity IMG_5677

We are delighted when we glimpse the compassion of a child rubbing another's back during story-time or asking another if she needs a hug, and we are joyed at the independence of a three year old setting up a tea party and inviting his friends. Each day is something new and amazing at Olive Branch School, a Montessori Primary School environment serving children ages 2.5-6 years old and their families.

Our school offers a range of experiences that encourage resourcefulness (critical thinking), support the building of self-control, discipline and decision making skills (cognitive and executive functioning) and nurture the emotional and spiritual growth of each child through positive social interactions. Children attending Olive Branch School are a part of a supportive, shared community experience 5 days a week. Our class size is small and responsive with a 7:1 ratio, 14 child maximum. A Montessori education truly gives a child the keys to the world and sets them on the road to loving learning.

Mighty Oaks Preschool has two 4 day spaces!

July 18, 2016

Mighty oaks banner logo

Mighty Oaks has two 4 day spaces coming available in August! We have four boys and one lady. We're hoping to have two more ladies join us to balance the energy.


Mighty Oaks is beginning its 5th school year in the Grant Park neighborhood. At Mighty Oaks, children engage in a student-interest led, play-based curriculum which encourages creativity, independence, and problem solving strategies while incorporating academic skills. The curricular inspiration comes from a variety of constructivist theorists including Maria Montessori and John Dewey. Mighty Oaks believes that children learn best by doing and experiencing life first-hand.


At Mighty Oaks students have the opportunity to create art, engage in dramatic play, get dirty, get inspired, discover favorite books, explore, learn, laugh, and grow together. Children have the opportunity to explore their natural environment on nature walks, digging in the organic garden beds, and interacting with the school’s three chickens; Dorothy, Blanche, and Rose. A typical day at Mighty Oaks follows a predictable daily rhythm which serves as a guide so that students benefit from the stability of a schedule while maintaining the flexibility necessary to thrive with a play and discovery-based curriculum.


Mighty Oaks’ Founder & Director, Brittany Smith, is a licensed teacher with over a decade of experience working with young children, as well as a Masters degree in Early Childhood and Elementary Education from the Lewis and Clark Graduate School of Education. Smith is passionate about providing quality education to a diverse population of learners and learning styles.

As a non-profit, Mighty Oaks has the opportunity to delve more deeply into supporting the community and the whole family unit. Smith has cultivated a number of relationships in the community that help to refine and focus Mighty Oaks’ holistic educational and familial support goals. In addition to Smith, the Mighty Oaks board of directors includes: David Cannon, an AMI certified Montessori school teacher/director and owner of Montessori Children’s House; Ann Summers, a Reading and Math Intervention Specialist, who serves on a committee to advise the Department of Education on measuring school readiness for preschool and kindergarten students; Amanda Fitzpatrick, a SE mother of twins currently attending Mighty Oaks, who is a graduate student studying family health and family systems; Tara Carmichael, a NE Portland mother of a Mighty Oaks alum with a wealth knowledge and experience in art education and working with diverse populations. Additionally, Smith collaborates with local elementary school teachers to ensure that Mighty Oaks offers a nurturing, developmentally appropriate, educational environment that fosters kindergarten readiness and independence while endeavoring to instill a lifelong love of learning.

WEVILLAGE OPENS FOURTH FLEXIBLE CHILDCARE LOCATION IN NORTHEAST PORTLAND

Portland, Or.  WeVillage founder Karen Beninati opened her innovative, flexible childcare facility at Northeast 19th and Broadway. The beautiful, 2,000 square foot space is designed as a unique play and learning area with a custom built play structure emulating some of the surrounding homes in the neighborhood, a preschool area, and a separate area for the infants and toddlers to explore.

The Northeast Broadway location was created by Beninati and a team of experts from Andersen Construction, the company that also designed and constructed Ibarre, WeVillage’s neighbor next door.  The vision was to use materials leftover from various larger commercial projects done by Andersen Construction.  The result, 96 per cent of the materials is reclaimed from existing wood saved from the original space.  The ceiling is a reclaimed concrete shoring form.  “We used LOW VOC adhesives, the panels are reclaimed from a high-tech industry project, the doors and windows were left over from some of Andersen’s larger commercial jobs”, said Beninati.  “Our mission of providing exceptional flexible childcare spaces that are beautifully designed for discerning parents has been achieved and we’re very excited to show our concept off in our newest location,” she added.

A special grand opening celebration will be held SEPT 24TH 4-9pm BIG PARTY! with BOUNCE HOUSE, FOOD,COCKTAILS AND FACE PAINTING,  ICE CREAM BAR!

IBARRE IS ALSO CELEBRATING 1 YEAR IN BUSINESS

 

“We also look forward to many events, birthday parties, and celebrations creating special memories with our WeVillage families at each of our WeVillage locations in the Pearl, Orenco Station (Hillsboro), Happy Valley Town Center and our newest here on Northeast Broadway,” she added.

About WeVillage
