Now enrolling for the 2015-2016 school year.

 

Located near the Adidas Village in North Portland (close to the intersection of N Greeley and N Killingsworth), Little Imprints is a licensed, in-home preschool. We offer care Monday through Friday, from 8:30 until 2:30. Half days are available from 8:30 until 12:30. Care is available for preschool aged children, between 3 and 5 years old. We follow the Portland Public School schedule for all major holiday and seasonal closings. Our summer care program will run from July 6th until August 14th.

Our daily routine involves a multitude of authentic, open ended materials, engaging art, nature, and music activities, and healthy organic snacks. We believe that less is more in the preschool environment, and the materials and objects within the school are tailored to expand upon the interests of each and every child. We have a large, fenced in backyard, and frequently explore the neighborhoods and parks surrounding the school. Indoor and outdoor play are equally important, and we go outside each day rain or shine.

At Little Imprints, we believe in instilling a love of learning, play, and exploration to the children in our care. Our school is designed with the intent of teaching children to become confident and effective communicators. We achieve this aim by having a maximum of 6 children in our care each day, while providing a safe, comfortable environment for the children to practice all the important life skills they will need to prosper.

Hawthorne Family Playschool Open House!

January 25, 2015

 

Come play with us during our OPEN HOUSE! 


Photo-2

When: Saturday, February 7th,2015, 10 AM - 12 PM

Where: 2828 SE Stephens Avenue
Portland, OR 97214

Hawthorne Family Playschool is a Co-operative preschool in SE Portland for children ages 3-5. Join Teacher Susan and the Hawthorne Family Playschool community for a meet and greet and tour of our wonderful school.

Susan takes great satisfaction in influencing young people and their parents, as evidenced by her professional stance on early childhood education:
In an age in which teachers are pressured to teach academics, stripping learning from any meaningful context, HFP values play at the heart of our curriculum.
In an age in which face-to-face time diminishes along with the increase of screen time, we nourish children’s social learning as we assist them in gaining skills to build valuable relationships.
In an age of extreme individualism, we believe in the value of a caring and engaged learning community.
In an age in which parents of young children are exhausted and isolated, we bring families together for meaningful work, social engagement and support.
In an age of oppression, we challenge narrow gender scripting, biased language, and stereotyped portrayals, providing children with more expansive notions of what it is to be human.
At a time when there’s a growing awareness of the disregard for our planet, we take seriously our role as stewards of the earth, nurturing children’s connections to the natural world.
HFP safeguards childhood so children may learn joyfully.

In our classroom children participate in baking, gardening, painting and handwork. Songs, stories and puppet shows provide rich material for the imagination and teach about the natural world. Children develop problem solving skills through cooperative activities and guided conflict resolution.

At Rising Song parents participate in their child’s school experience through weekly journal entries.  Family gatherings are scheduled throughout the year to foster community and celebrate the seasons.  For more information please visit our (soon to be updated!) website at:  www.risingsongpreschool.org

is hosting an

Open House

July 24th from 1 to 3 pm

in celebration of our new space

221 NE 117th Ave

We are currently an intimate in-home school for children 3 months to 3 years old. We see this time as one for free exploration and developing a sense of self. Infants are just learning about their own bodies and developing the abilities they will need for all later learning. Toddlers are coming into their own. They are learning their place in the world, developing and refining their skills, and asserting their independence. The classroom is the children's space - child-sized, beautiful, and completely accessible to their need for doing things on their own. It is a peaceful place that gives them the chance to choose what they want to work on within a routine that is predictable and limits that help them feel secure. Learning develops the whole child - physically, cognitively, socially, emotionally, and spiritually. There are no "right" answers but only more exciting questions. And we love to share their enthusiasm with them in an attitude of acceptance, patience, and love.

We have seen a growing need for high quality Infant and Toddler care in Northeast, Southeast, and East Portland so we are expanding our program into a new home dedicated solely to the children. This cute home with airy, bright rooms and a large versatile yard is on a quiet cul-de-sac, making it the perfect location for a small community-oriented program. If you are interested in learning more you can visit www.theearthtortoiseschool.com or give us a call at (503) 252-9956. Thank so much in your interest and we hope to meet you soon!

We even enrolled her in another one prior to Montessori Children's House only to pull her out because we were disappointed in our experience there. I wish that we had discovered this school sooner! It would have saved us a lot of stress.'

Montessori Infant and Toddler Program Expanding and Enrolling for the Fall

June 27, 2011

The Earth Tortoise School is currently an intimate in-home school for children 3 months to 3 years old. We see this time as one for free exploration and developing a sense of self. Infants are just learning about their own bodies and developing the abilities they will need for all later learning. Toddlers are coming into their own. They are learning their place in the world, developing and refining their skills, and asserting their independence. The classroom is the children's space - child-sized, beautiful, and completely accessible to their need for doing things on their own.

Learning develops the whole child - physically, cognitively, socially, emotionally, and spiritually. There are no "right" answers but only more exciting questions. And we love to share their enthusiasm with them in an attitude of acceptance, patience, and love.

 Montessori Education begins at birth and builds confidence and self-esteem as even the youngest children are respected as individuals, allowed the freedom to develop their skills at their own pace, and validated as important members of the community.

We see a large need for high-quality infant and toddler care and are expanding our program this fall. Our new location is in a quiet neighborhood on a cul-de-sac with bright airy rooms, a versatile yard with a sandbox, vegetable garden, and lots of room to explore. Because we are moving, we have a few spaces available for September. If you are interested in learning more, please visit our website at www.theearthtortoiseschool.com. To schedule a tour please give us a call at (503) 252-9956 or email us at theearthtortoiseschool@gmail.com

We will be hosting an Open House on Sunday, July 24th from 1 to 3pm. Please contact us for our address and to RSVP. We hope to meet you and your family! Thank you!
