Hawthorne Family Playschool is a Co-operative preschool in SE Portland for children ages 3-5. Join Teacher Susan and the Hawthorne Family Playschool community for a meet and greet and tour of our wonderful school.
Susan takes great satisfaction in influencing young people and their parents, as evidenced by her professional stance on early childhood education:
In an age in which teachers are pressured to teach academics, stripping learning from any meaningful context, HFP values play at the heart of our curriculum.
In an age in which face-to-face time diminishes along with the increase of screen time, we nourish children’s social learning as we assist them in gaining skills to build valuable relationships.
In an age of extreme individualism, we believe in the value of a caring and engaged learning community.
In an age in which parents of young children are exhausted and isolated, we bring families together for meaningful work, social engagement and support.
In an age of oppression, we challenge narrow gender scripting, biased language, and stereotyped portrayals, providing children with more expansive notions of what it is to be human.
At a time when there’s a growing awareness of the disregard for our planet, we take seriously our role as stewards of the earth, nurturing children’s connections to the natural world.
HFP safeguards childhood so children may learn joyfully.
