Little Hands Garden School
We re-opened in June following the operational guidelines for Emergency childcares (we now have dual licenses). Details of the rules can be found here: https://oregonearlylearning.com/COVID-19-Resources
We are able to serve children of both Emergency responders and all other Portlanders who are able to adhere to the current rules. We are now operating almost exclusively outdoors, with our indoor spaces being mainly used for bathroom time and naps. We feel that with our very small class size, outdoor classrooms, and consistent, limited groups and staff, we are implementing best practices during this pandemic. Supporting small schools and outdoor education is always a great choice, but currently it is also the safest choice for early childhood education.
