CHILDREN'S VILLAGE DAY SCHOOL

Early Childhood Education                               Tigard & Vancouver Locations

In the Extended Developmental Pre-K program there is an atmosphere that is safe and nurturing. We provide security, fun, freedom, achievement and respect while teaching children limits and responsibility by allowing them to make choices.

Our goal is to create a positive learning experience and to prepare children for a positive future. We use the "play at learning" theory as our base. With respectful guidance and a familiar schedule, we negotiate this playful world with an eye toward increasing self-esteem, free expression and pro-social interaction.
