Wow & Flutterville Come Meet Us For Our Open House Sunday, Feb. 2nd from 9-10 am~


NE Portland Child Care Center


4114 N Vancouver Ave., Portland, OR
Our NE location has easy access to I-5 for parents who work in downtown and live in the northeast.

Your child thrives in a community of kindness, empathy, & inclusion.

Infants and toddlers are beautiful observers who experience the world so lovingly with their newly discovered senses. As caregivers, we honor the way your precious one experiences its world, and we value their unique internal clock and rhythm. Our “homes-away-from-home” philosophy embraces the Waldorf-inspired, Lifeways Early Education. We provide a loving community designed to support your little one in their work of exploring, discovering, and learning through nature-based free play in our Global Playground.

What is a Global Playgarden?

The staff of our Global Playgarden is made up of at least 50% refugees from countries including Afghanistan, Iraq, Costa Rica, and Somalia. These well-educated women with degrees in chemistry, math, and early childhood education share their culture through songs, stories, art & food.

Facilities, food, activities, and exploration

Your child's daycare environment is a peaceful space where they feel safe to explore, play, create, and “just be” in peace and joy. We serve vegetarian foods use only green cleaning supplies, low-VOC paints, and natural/organic materials, as well as beautiful and gentle colors. Along with our daily rhythm of activities, we explore the local Northeast Portland community. Our children also dance and learn from our weekly visits from Music and Japanese teachers. 

I just wanted to let you know how much we love love love the girls’ teachers. In both rooms, they are so loving and patient. They are o good at communicating with us and keeping us updated on interactions that we can then mirror at home.
— Elle, mother of two wow and fluttterville friends
