Summer and Fall Openings at ChildRoots

June 19, 2017

James

 

Need summer coverage? ChildRoots NW has openings!

At 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 preschool program is influenced by the schools of Reggio Emilia, Italy. We believe that children are powerful, independent, and capable; and our program is designed to nurture these traits to build empowered, confident thinkers, dreamers, and tinkerers.

  • We’re committed to building community. Multiple school-wide and class events throughout the year bring us together for celebration, conversation, and shared experiences.
  • Our daily summer camp program offers children the chance to explore a variety of topics in small groups. See a sample atelier term schedule below.
  • On-site art studio offers each child the chance to experiment with a variety of different media, including sculpture, collage, printmaking, and textiles.

Here are just a few of our daily SUMMER CAMP choices:

  • Tie Dye, Volcano Making, Terrariums, Astronomy, Mural Painting, Wilderness Survival, Sun Prints, and Fairy Houses

ChildRoots has three locations in the heart of Portland, and we currently have just a few openings for ages 2 - 6 at our Northwest location. Interested in learning more? Check out our website, give our enrollment office a call at (503) 235-1151, or shoot us an email. We can't wait to get in touch.

ChildRoots has Preschool Availability - Now and for Fall!

April 26, 2017

Julyparent

At 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 preschool program is influenced by the schools of Reggio Emilia, Italy. We believe that children are powerful, independent, and capable; and our program is designed to nurture these traits to build empowered, confident thinkers, dreamers, and tinkerers.

  • We’re committed to building community. Multiple school-wide and class events throughout the year bring us together for celebration, conversation, and shared experiences.
  • Our daily atelier program offers children the chance to explore a variety of topics in small groups. See a sample atelier term schedule below.
  • On-site art studio offers each child the chance to experiment with a variety of different media, including sculpture, collage, printmaking, and textiles.

ATELIER SCHEDULE: Motion

Week 1: Woodshop
Week 2: Horticulture
Week 3: Movement
Week 4: Animation
Week 5: Locomotives
Week 6: Chemistry
Week 7: Advanced Filmmaking
Week 8: Water Science

ChildRoots has three locations in the heart of Portland, and we currently have just a few openings for toddlers and preschoolers at our Northwest location. Interested in learning more? Check out our website, give our enrollment office a call at (503) 235-1151, or shoot us an email. We can't wait to get in touch.

New Italian Kindergarten Offers One-of-a-Kind Program in Portland Metro

April 12, 2017

123456 prek

Throughout Portland, kindergarten programs abound.  However, there is none quite like the new Scuola Italiana Kindergarten program which is slated to open next fall.  This unique program offers both Italian and English language instruction by fusing Italian language and culture together with the necessary English language kindergarten skills to create well rounded, world citizens equipped to enter any first-grade classroom.

Did you know that providing foreign language opportunities to kids is truly a gift that keeps on giving?  There are plenty of studies that illustrate the truly amazing and lifelong benefits associated with learning a foreign language.  Better problem solving skills, higher test scores, greater overall academic success are just a few of those advantages.  Now who doesn’t want that for their child?!  Additionally, children im
mersed in second language at an early age have the very real possibility of becoming native-fluent in that language.

It is not necessary to have Italian language experience yourself to enroll your child in kindergarten.  Our teachers understand that most parents will not know Italian, and they are prepared to share tried and true tips, fun and educational resources, and other helpful information that empowers you support your child’s progress.  For parents who might wish to learn the language simultaneously, we offer a comprehensive adult program

If your child is not yet ready for kindergarten, Scuola Italiana has several other wonderful opportunities available for you and your child.  We can begin by sharing Italian language with you and your child as early as 18 months through our free Mommy and Me Playgroup.  Playgroup is designed for toddlers aged 18 – 42 months old.  We also have an excellent Reggio Emilia inspired preschool program and after school and weekend classes too.   Summer culture camps are open between June and August when regular classes are not in session.

If you’d like to learn more about our new, one-of-a-kind kindergarten program or any of the other children’s classes, please join Scuola Italiana teachers and staff for an open house on Saturday, April 29th from noon to 2:00 pm.  The open house is at 1542 NW 14th AVE, Portland, OR 97209 (14th & Quimby).

Can’t make our open house?  Please email questions or arrange a visit at info@scuola.us.

Since 2006, Scuola Italiana has operated with a mission to promote the Italian language and culture to children and adults in a student-centered environment; nurturing responsible, global citizens by providing cross-cultural understanding and fostering a deep appreciation for world civilizations that intersect with the Italian culture.

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

Step by Step is Enrolling NOW!

We are now taking enrolling for FT and PT children.

Step by Step has been caring for children for over 30 years. We recently opened a second location on NE 29th and Dekum and we are enrolling children now!  It is a wonderful space, with great natural lighting and a spacious backyard! We keep with a 3:1 ratio which is great for babies, toddlers and preschool age children. We do cloth diapers to help with early potty training and we also serve 3 meals a day for your children! The philosophy we follow at Step by Step is one of allowing the children to explore and learn from their surroundings, in a loving and relaxed atmosphere. First and foremost, we strive to nurture a child's spirit, a strong and health self-esteem is the foundation for future learning. We believe in mutual respect and love with the children.
