QRIS Five-Star Rating!

Oregon’s Quality Rating and Improvement System (QRIS) has ranked us among the top child care and early learning programs in the state!

Our 5-Star rating is a testament to the quality and commitment of our incredible staff and the values of our program.

QRIS uses a rigorous criteria, and comprehensive evaluation process to determine program quality. This included an indepth review to determine if we are using best practices in adult-child interaction, encouraging parents to play an active role, and the level of training, accreditation, and support provided to our staff.

In all of these critical areas, and more, Childswork excels. But we aren’t content to rest on our laurels. We’re committed to continually improve our program, and bring out the best in our children every day.

In addition we have a few spots in our fabulous Parent-Child Two's class where toddlers attend class once a week with a parent(s). Please contact us if you would like any information about these options.
