ChildRoots is Enrolling Toddlers and Preschoolers!

November 09, 2016

DSC_5164

This is ChildRoots. We believe that children are capable and strong. They deserve beautiful spaces, high-quality materials, and curriculum that is built upon their interests. They deserve to be listened to and respected — their ideas are powerful. They deserve organic, whole foods; and spaces to run, jump, skip, and yell. They deserve a community that nurtures social and emotional intelligence and introduces letters and numbers. They deserve teachers that enliven their natural curiosity and foster a lifelong love of learning. We’re inspired by busy brains, running feet, and muddy puddles to stomp in. We ask questions, and respect each child’s innate curiosity. We look closer.

Our schools provide exceptional care for children ages 6 weeks - 6 years. Our preschool program promotes language, literacy, math, and kindergarten readiness through a holistic, child-led approach. Our on-site art studios spark creativity. Our atelier program offers children the opportunity to delve deep into such fascinating topics as engineering, history, physics, kinetic art, printmaking, and drama. Open-ended, natural toys and loose parts inspire wonder and enliven curiosity. The loving relationships that children build with teachers and friends over their years here shape their community.

They say that it takes a village to raise a child. Welcome to ChildRoots -- we’re here for you. We’d love to be a part of your village.

For more information, please visit our website, or give us a call. We’re here to help.

In Home Daycare SE Montavilla

October 27, 2016

Infants to 4 years are my specialty. Science shows this is the most crucial time for brain development in our children and my home is an ideal setting for the education, stimulus, and care to give your loved ones.

I have over 30 years 'experience with children in my home, where they will interact with each other and learn valuable social skills, practice letters and numbers during our daily lesson time, enjoy family-style dining for breakfast, lunch, and snacks, and explore the neighborhood and learn about nature in our annual garden.

My low ratios ensure that each child is given the individual attention they need to thrive. I have been the care provider for many of my families for their childhood and am now caring for their own children.

I also understand that sometimes parents need some adult time, I offer an affordable way for you to go out to dinner or have a night alone as well by extending my services later or overnight on occasion.

 I currently have 2 openings, rates start at $200/week, I'd love to give you a tour, give me a call today!

Part-Time Nanny Needed in SE Portland

October 24, 2016

Hello! We're looking for a caring, dependable, education/play-oriented part-time nanny for roughly 25 hours a week. Our two children are 7 and 4, and love arts and crafts, music, books, and being outside.

The schedule is M/W/F after school, and all day Tues/Thurs. The location for care switches weekly between our 2 houses, dad's in South Tabor and mom's in Woodstock. Some very light housekeeping would be helpful--mainly just cleaning up after craft time, etc., and some meal prep (really just snacks and lunches).

We'd love to know a little bit about you, your child care philosophy and methods, and how you see yourself a great fit for joining our family. Compensation is negotiable, but hoping to land around local average pay. Please email Brian at bk@fatpause.com if interested.

Humming Hive has openings! Nature-immersion programs for preschool-age children - just across the river from St. Johns

August 31, 2016

Summer camps

Humming Hive has openings for children ages 3-5 years old for a 3 day/week Waldorf-inspired nature-immersion program.  We sing, tell stories, make plant medicine, garden, do art and crafts, learn wilderness skills, and spend part of every day exploring the magic of the forest.  We offer wholesome snacks cooked on our rocket stove and in our cob oven.  We are outside every day, rain or shine, and have covered areas to eat and work on crafts, including a woodstove-heated yurt. 

Please visit our website and our facebook page for more information, and e-mail Christy at humminghiveforest@gmail.com for enrollment.  We meet Tuesday through Thursday, 9am-1pm, September through June.  We look forward to hearing from you!

Woodsong Preschool in South Tabor has Fall 2016 Openings!

Woodsong Preschool is a small in-home, Reggio-inspired preschool nestled in the heart of South Tabor across the street from Clinton Park. We accept ages 2 1/2 through 6, and are open from 8:30-4:30. Woodsong preschool is play-focused, project-based, child-led, and art-infused. We believe that children are natural scientists and learners, who can discover their knowledge through play, questioning, creativity and authentic experience.
