Creative Children's Center in Beaverton

January 14, 2009

I just wanted to share some information about Creative Children's Center in Beaverton.  My son has been going there since he turned 2 and we love the school.  CCC is Oregon's largest parent-child cooperative preschool and Kindergarten.  They actually have programs from 14 months to 6 years of age.  I love being a part of my son's school experience and my husband actually parent helps once a month, so he gets to have his own special time with my son at school.  It's been fantastic seeing my son become an independent child.  He loves school and wants to go everyday!

They're holding an open house on Saturday, January 17th & Saturday, February 21st from 9:30am to 12:30pm.  There also visitation days available during the week on January 21, January 27, February 4, and February 10th.  Visitation hours are from 9:30 to 11:30am.

Infant Montessori Co-op Interest & Help

April 15, 2008

Myself and a couple other mammas with infants (ages 8 months to 12 months) are interested in putting together a co-op Montessori close-in East side.  Does anyone have any experience with putting together a co-op or a resource for "how to's"?  Is there a good resource that you may know if for used Montessori materials, furniture, etc?

I would love any feedback.  kiradennison@yahoo.com

Looking for a couple 2 year olds for NE Nanny Share

October 03, 2007

Hi there, we are a group of NE families that have a nanny share/co-op thing going for our 2 year olds, we are looking for a couple more families that might be interested in joing our group on Thursday mornings. The group runs from 8:30am to 12:30pm and it's $20 a day.  With our wonderful Nanny, our goal is to create a fun group so our toddlers can interact with each other and learn through play .   This is also a great way for parents to get a much needed break and time to run errands without the little ones.  If this sounds like something you would be interested in please email. Thanks so much
