Growing Seeds North
I just received more info from the new Growing Seeds that is opening in NE Portland this spring. The location is 6501 NE MLK Blvd, at the intersection of NE MLK and NE Portland. It sounds like it will be a great full-service program. Here is a more detailed description, as sent by one of the owners:
Growing Seeds North will offer full range of care from 6 weeks to Kindergarten-ready. The space will be licensed for 76 children. It will consist of 5 rooms of full-day only. It breaks down to 8 infants, 8 one year olds, 10 two year olds, 10 three year olds, 20 4 & 5 year olds, and a room of 20 half-day preschool only children. Each class will have a Spanish-speaking and an English-speaking teacher. At this point we are requiring families to attend a Growing Seeds open house and fill out a waiting list application. By March 15th, we will be collecting our enrollment fees and first month tuition to hold spots for when we open. This enables us to properly hire staff and train for the predicted amount of children who will be attending.The rates are the same as Growing Seeds. One major difference at Growing Seeds North is that we will have a full kitchen and will provide all organic fruits, vegetables, dairy and meat, including lunches. We will also have two outdoor areas, one for infants and wobblers and one for toddlers and preschoolers. It is quite exciting to have been able to design the room layouts and the spaces. It will provide the children with more space and room than the current Hollywood location has available for them.
