Founded in 1990, Creative Children’s Center offers classes for children ages two through third grade with both half day and full day options available. We provide early morning care beginning at 7:30 and after school care (creativity club) running until 5:30, for our working families. In the summer months our Creativity Summer School expands to grade six and welcomes teen counselors. Our program is located on the border of two Oregon communities, Hillsboro and Beaverton.
Once a farm and vineyard, CCC has kept it’s unique country appeal, with three dynamic classrooms, a large nature inspired playground, and gardens designed by students and caring adult friends.
Our director, Lucy Chaillé, has worked in partnership with parents and teachers, creating a program that is a true collaboration. We believe in a child’s right to a quality education, guided by loving adults working in unison with children.
Our leadership team has been actively engaged in the study of the schools in Reggio Emilia, Italy, who like us, believe in social constructivist education and the Rights of Children. We have been pleased to welcome Amelia Gambetti and Lella Gandini to our campus as we adapt the Reggio Approach to our learning community and thank them for their guidance and support.
