A Child's Way Kindergarten-Preschool is a NAEYC accredited kindergarten and preschool that has been serving young children and their families in Portland for more than 35 years. Our developmentally-based curriculum utilizes a multi-sensory, hands-on approach to learning. It is planned around the whole child.
A Child’s Way Kindergarten-Preschool serves young children by providing a developmentally-based curriculum which enhances self-esteem and promotes problem solving skills.
A Child’s Way offers an experiential learning environment, encouraging high self-esteem, independence, and positive social interactions. We believe in helping children build high self-esteem in a non-competitive atmosphere…an atmosphere where mistakes or failures are viewed as natural happenings from which we learn. We believe that helping children learn to accept what is beautifully unique about themselves and others is of primary importance.
Empowering children to find creative solutions to their problems.
Our guidance policy is based on a problem-solving technique which empowers children to find creative solutions to their problems. This same technique encompasses our approach to all learning situations.
Lead teacher and assistant work together in every class.
A lead teacher and assistant work together to provide a warm, learning environment. The assistant adds an infusion of new ideas as well as continuity for the children. With a second adult in the classroom, the teachers are better able to meet the children’s individual needs in addition to enriching and broadening their ability to effectively interact with others.
A rich and varied, anti-bias curriculum.
We offer an anti-bias curriculum which is developmentally based. It is rich and varied, offering many experiences in art, music, dramatic play, large motor activities, blocks, games, science, pre-math, pre-reading, and pre-writing skills, social studies, and language arts.
