SE Richmond Preschool
Our SE Portland preschool is located in a converted house with a dedicated, light-filled art studio, a large, open layout, and backyard playground. The school is certified for 16 children, and we divide these children into 2 groups based on age.
Berries are a small group of 2 and 3 year olds. Their teachers meet them where they are at developmentally, and provide a multitude of opportunities for exploration and play. Each day has a song time and story time, opportunities for sensory exploration, motor skills development, and imaginative play. They focus on language development and forging healthy attachments as a community.
The Birdies are the older group of 3-5 year olds. Birdies take on responsibilities and stewardship of the school community. During circle time they are introduced to the Job Chart and they work in partnerships or individually to tidy and prepare the classroom. They begin long-term, investigative projects together, and extended time in the art studio.
