Nestled among the trees in Southwest Portland, Oregon, is a place where children’s minds and bodies grow. At Multnomah Playschool (MPS) we’ve created an environment with plenty of room and time for children to feel safe, believe in their instincts, become bold, and believe in themselves. MPS is more than just a preschool, it truly is a warm and supportive community committed to the future of our children.

Come grow with us.

Multnomah Playschool (MPS) is a parent-cooperative preschool for children ages 3 through Pre-K. We seek to provide a safe, healthy, developmentally appropriate environment for children to explore their growing sense of self and understanding of the world.

Incorporated into our play-based curriculum is an emphasis on social anti-bias, understanding and acceptance of diversity.

In our program, children learn to get along with others, exercise their developing gross and fine motor skills, communicate verbally and explore creative materials. Abundant opportunities for self-expression are offered. Outdoor play is integral to our daily curriculum.
