The ReadySetMom Preschool & Childcare Directory for the Portland, Oregon metro region is designed to help parents find appropriate care for their young children. The information listed for each preschool and childcare provider is current to the best of our knowledge. We are constantly receiving new listings and will be building this directory during the coming months. Ultimately it will be the first stop for parents who are looking for early childhood education and care for their children.
Most parents look for preschools or daycare providers either near their home or near their work. Use the CATEGORY listings on the left-hand sidebar to choose the area of town where you need care. Then, scroll through the easy-to-read listings to find appropriate matches for your needs. Where listed, visit the Web sites and learn as much as you can about the school or childcare provider. Call to schedule a tour or an informational meeting. On the right-hand sidebar, you'll see listings for IMMEDIATE OPENINGS and OPEN HOUSES, which will also assist you in your search for care.
We've also included some specialized categories on the left-hand sidebar for parents seeking particular programs, such as Cooperative, Religious, Language Immersion, Waldorf and Montessori programs. By clicking one of these categories, you'll pull up the specialized program listings for the entire metro region.
This directory was created by Heather and Renee, founders of ReadySetMom. Both moms have gone through the process of finding childcare and preschools for their children and wish a comprehensive directory had been around a few years ago! We've tried to make it as user-friendly as possible, but are always open to suggestions. Feel free to drop us a line at readysetmom [at] gmail [dot] com!
