The Children’s Garden – Downtown Campus provides educational programs and childcare to infants, toddlers, preschool, pre-kindergarten, and kindergarten students. Our high-quality education experience is focused on helping students develop emotional intelligence and mindfulness. What sets us apart from traditional daycare centers is our emphasis on academics. We use a unique curriculum that combines the best aspects of different educational theories, including Montessori, Reggio, Waldorf, and RIE.

Our thoughtful, engaging classrooms have evolving themes that highlight and extend children’s interests. Individual areas of learning and collaborative activity centers challenge and enhance critical thinking skills.

All of our teachers form a partnership with each family to ensure that every child’s unique needs are met. This helps create a strong sense of community within our school.

We believe in providing a well-rounded education to our students. In addition to our specialized curriculum, we offer exciting enrichment programs such as foreign languages, soccer, theater, dance, and more.

Since 1988, we have proudly served children and families in the Portland metro area.

We invite you to visit us and see for yourself what makes our school so special.
