Preschool Promise Program Year:

  • September 8, 2021 – June 9, 2022

Description: The Mission of La Casa del Árbol [The Treehouse] is to offer high quality education, and areas of interest have been prepared to provide a safe and comfortable environment with creative and reflective capacity, rich with training and educational experiences, helping in the formation of moral, ethical, and cultural values that help children to develop all of their abilities and talents, keeping in mind the skills and abilities of each child within a framework of rules that promote individual respect and love for oneself, for others, and for the environment. Promoting committed family participation, which contributes to the success of the child, the family and the community.

The Vision of La Casa del Árbol [The Treehouse] is for all children to receive high-quality education in an environment of equity and inclusion, recognizing that each child is singular, and therefore it is necessary to make individualized adaptations to create strategies to support their development, that is, including making adaptations to cover the needs of each one of the children, where there is no prejudice based on their race, language, or beliefs, avoiding stereotypes, valuing these first years of life, promoting inclusion and diversity.

The Philosophy of La Casa del Árbol is to promote the curiosity of every child in a multicultural environment where dignity is provided for their culture, language, beliefs and customs, and in this way the child gets the best performance for his or her development and reinforces his or her own identity. Families are encouraged to collaborate and make suggestions, knowing that their viewpoints will be respected and valued when it comes time to make decisions related to children’s development, therefore I will make sure to show them empathy and sensitivity. A weekly study plan is prepared, designed with activities to support each child, keeping in mind their abilities and their own interests, with a goal being development in all areas, the observations and evaluations of each child being necessary, as they are the guide for covering all their needs. Play is an important tool for developing self-control and promoting language, cognition, and social competency. Knowing that the important thing is that we teach them to recognize their emotions and provide them strategies to be able to regulate themselves, which is necessary for conscious coexistence, which is to say, helping them to develop respect for the dignity of other people and also respect for their own rights and responsibilities as well as those of others, establishing equal relations and avoiding all types of violence, allowing them to prepare their own rules and thus learn to have good relations and work in collaboration with those around them, and in this way inclusion and respect for diversity arises in a natural manner. In La Casa del Árbol [The Treehouse], we follow a mixture of philosophies, primarily Waldorf, the child is encouraged to love, respect and care for our planet so they can make this connection with the environment.

My educational purpose is to be able to have a positive impact on the life of a child, families, and society, and this is why I make sure not to forget my role and the responsibility I have to deliver high-quality education, and therefore I have to pay attention to the methods that I use in teaching, what I teach and the way I do it, including that the way of evaluation must be in a conscious manner. I have learned that when children have time and materials, they express themselves in their way, freely and at their own pace.

Experience or specialized trainings: I have attended RCC Community College since the year 2012, in which I completed basic education for childcare, and I continue to attend college to this day, regularly taking advanced classes, classes focused on child development, I attend conferences every year and trainings to continue learning more about child development, in this way I prepare myself to provide high-quality care, implementing best practices in childcare and thus being able to comply with the standards indicated by the State. Through the years, I have had the opportunity to provide my services to children of different ages, but in the past year I have only had children of preschool age, meanwhile I continue to be focused on acquiring more knowledge and continuing to progress in quality. I have participated in the Spark program and have received 3 stars. I continue to work to get a 4-star grade and ORO has given me a step 8 qualification.

Description: Dear families, we invite you to be a part of the Preschool Promise family. We are eagerly awaiting the beginning of the 2021-2022 school year. We are very excited to get to know you and your child(ren). We encourage you to write to the Preschool Promises program so your child can have the opportunity to get prepared academically so his or her transition to kindergarten can be much easier, for your child as well as for you. Here at Sunrise Child Care we hope to be able to help you with this transition, which can occasionally be very difficult when it deals with separation in their first years of life. We invite you to take a look at our early learning program. Contact us by email or by phone call or text message to schedule a Zoom interview to get to know us and our classroom.

Here we will share a little bit about what we do in our classroom: we support children to recognize and value their feelings in an appropriate manner, keeping in mind that each one is different and that we need to understand them differently, we work very hard in the four areas of development with the children. These areas are Socioemotional, Cognitive Development, Physical Development, and Oral and Written Language Development. Supporting children to value their cultures and beliefs, we implement and believe their values, we have children of different races and ethnicities, who help us grow as persons and learn new things.

Other services provided: Here at Sunrise Child Care Inc., we support families who have to work and leave their children for periods longer than the hours offered by the Preschool Promise program, keeping their child busy with various learning activities for their children before and after the program.

We are also registered with DHS for those parents who qualify for those services.

Preschool Promise Program Year:

  • August 16, 2021 – June 23, 2022

Description: At Kids Unlimited PREKU, we value all children and families and want to provide the best experience for all who take part. Our philosophy is built on a holistic approach to learning, ensuring that the whole child is cared for and embraced for who they are. We value children as individuals and understand that to feed the curiosity to learn, we must support aspects of learning such as social emotional skills, physical well-being, and divergent thinking through play-based learning. Our holistic approach means that families and community will also play a crucial role in our school.

Our program utilizes Creative Curriculum in order to meet the academic and social emotional goals of our students. The curriculum’s scope and sequence aligns with Oregon’s Early Learning and Kindergarten guidelines.  This comprehensive academic curriculum uses research-based methods to teach and assess 38 different objectives throughout the year. Areas of learning include: Social Emotional, Physical, Language, Cognitive, Literacy, Mathematics, Science and Technology, Social Studies, The Arts and English Language Acquisition.

We value social emotional learning-building important problem solving, self-regulation and social skills. Before we teach children what to learn, we want to make sure they understand how to learn. To do this, we want to provide learning experiences that encourage problem solving in interactive ways. Student focused, hands-on, play based learning are all woven into the thematic curriculum that will be presented throughout the school year.

For most children, preschool is the first exposure to a school experience. As the families of our students, we ask that you be a present, active part of your child’s learning. As educators, we will facilitate learning in a meaningful way and provide positive interactions for your children to cultivate a foundation for learning. Together, with full support from staff, families and community resources, we can encourage curious, compassionate and confident learners.

It is our goal to create meaningful and diverse experiences for all children. Through equitable teaching practices we want to empower each student to be their true selves within the classroom community. We learn and grow from one another, embracing the differences that make us unique. It is our goal at PreKU that we build a culture of not only acceptance for all, but the appreciation and empowerment for all.

Program utilizes social-emotional learning (SEL) curriculum or approach (example: Conscious Discipline, Second Step, etc.): Yes

Experience or specialized trainings: Our staff offer many years of experience in Early Childhood Education, and complete more than 20 hours of Early Childhood Professional Development each year. Our Teachers all have obtained Bachelors degrees in Early Childhood or Elementary Education, and our support staff are continuously building on skills through CDA course work, Community Training, and College Courses.

Description: At Kids Unlimited PREKU, we value all children and families and want to provide the best experience for all who take part. Our philosophy is built on a holistic approach to learning, ensuring that the whole child is cared for and embraced for who they are. We value children as individuals and understand that to feed the curiosity to learn, we must support aspects of learning such as social emotional skills, physical well-being, and divergent thinking through play-based learning. Our holistic approach means that families and community will also play a crucial role in our school.

Our program utilizes Creative Curriculum in order to meet the academic and social emotional goals of our students. The curriculum’s scope and sequence aligns with Oregon’s Early Learning and Kindergarten guidelines. This comprehensive academic curriculum uses research-based methods to teach and assess 38 different objectives throughout the year. Areas of learning include: Social Emotional, Physical, Language, Cognitive, Literacy, Mathematics, Science and Technology, Social Studies, The Arts and English Language Acquisition.

We value social emotional learning-building important problem solving, self-regulation and social skills. Before we teach children what to learn, we want to make sure they understand how to learn. To do this, we want to provide learning experiences that encourage problem solving in interactive ways. Student focused, hands-on, play based learning are all woven into the thematic curriculum that will be presented throughout the school year.

For most children, preschool is the first exposure to a school experience. As the families of our students, we ask that you be a present, active part of your child’s learning. As educators, we will facilitate learning in a meaningful way and provide positive interactions for your children to cultivate a foundation for learning. Together, with full support from staff, families and community resources, we can encourage curious, compassionate and confident learners.

It is our goal to create meaningful and diverse experiences for all children. Through equitable teaching practices we want to empower each student to be their true selves within the classroom community. We learn and grow from one another, embracing the differences that make us unique. It is our goal at PreKU that we build a culture of not only acceptance for all, but the appreciation and empowerment for all.
