An in home play based childcare located in two SE Portland neighborhoods (Montavilla and South Tabor,) that provides a comfortable, nurturing environment for young children to play, learn and grow!

We offer a variety of experiences for our group throughout our days together. We all work and play together in our mixed age environment which provides an element that is valuable for young children. It encourages leadership, patience, understanding, and respect for one another. We offer a loosely structured, play based learning experience, largely child driven, we follow their lead and expand on their interests and ideas.

such a relief

I’ve been working from home since the pandemic started and I was so nervous to send our daughter to daycare after 19 months of togetherness but it truly has been wonderful for our whole family! Our daughter can’t wait to go to “school” in the morning and I can tell all the caregivers love to see her when she arrives. It’s such a relief to have a loving, warm and FUN environment for our child to be when she’s not with us. 

We encourage you to schedule a tour when signing up for our waitlist.

Daily Rhythm

W e will have daily opportunities to go on outings in the neighborhood, experience imagination, art, reading, language, music and movement in a variety of ways.

To see our full daily schedule visit our curriculum page.

Infant Care

Infants are given the opportunity to be fully engaged with the whole group and while they are generally in the arms of a caregiver or very near by they get a variety of experiences throughout the day with all of the children.

Once they are mobile we give them space for safe and monitored exploration throughout the child care space at their pace. We try to follow their natural rhythms of eating and sleeping as closely as we can.



W e offer 2-5 day weekly schedule. Please see our Tuitions page for current rates.
