School Notes

  • At the heart of the Whole Child Montessori Center community are two beautiful and carefully appointed Montessori classrooms and a lush and enchanting outdoor space that invite children to explore and to exercise their natural desires to learn, discover, and put their hands and bodies to work. Children feel safe and secure in their joyful exploration as they are guided by a highly qualified and dedicated teaching staff. Whole Child honors the importance of the collaborative spirit and is not simply a preschool, but a vibrant community of children, parents and educators.
  • Whole Child is nestled in the Woodstock neighborhood of SE Portland, in a space specifically designed and built to meet the needs of the young child and a small school community. The school draws children and families from all four quadrants of the city with an outstanding reputation for providing a professional, respectful and nurturing environment dedicated to authentic Montessori practice (Association Montessori Internationale accredited).
