Sunnyside Sprouts Playschool is a private, play-based, whole child learning community, specializing in superior care and early childhood education for children ages 6 weeks through preschool. Our environmentally conscious space is located in the Sunnyside neighborhood of inner SE Portland, Oregon.
We are two career "educarers" who view all children as unique individuals. We believe that a warm, consistent connection between caregivers and children is necessary to create a healthy environment for growth and development.
"Setting an example is not the main means of influencing others; it is the only means.” -- Albert Einstein
Our belief is that children learn what they live. We model the behaviors we strive to foster in children: curiosity, hands-on exploration, and treating ourselves and each other with kindness, respect and fascination.
We are committed to helping children develop a lifelong love of learning, and cultivating the skills essential to authentic living.
