As a preschool designed by a licensed Oregon educator focused on creating an enriching environment where young children grow and thrive, A Child’s Place develops the social, emotional and problem-solving skills necessary for positive relationships and success at home and school, and in the community.
This child-centered program:
  • celebrates the growth of each child as a unique individual in a group of learners within a larger community,

  • recognizes the challenges and opportunities of these critical developmental stages, and

  • provides the groundwork for joyous engagement in life-long learning.

These video clips are brief looks at the learning integrated into play.
Kids follow their interests in numbers and letters.
Zippers are soooo challenging!
Success is soooo satisfying!
Children share a universal need to develop independence and competence. Children learn best when they:
  • follow their interests,
  • have choices with a range of challenge and
  • many opportunities to practice,
  • struggle and succeed with a minimum of help, and
  • celebrate success.
As examples, look at books, building , puzzles, puzzling and science.
