ChildRoots will be opening a new Center location in April. ChildRoots NW is located at 1740 NW Flanders on the corner of NW 18th and NW Flanders, in the Pearl District. The Center is a 9,000 square-foot-space comprised of nine classrooms, with a total capacity for 110 children.
The space was formally a Children’s Creative Learning Center (CCLC) child care, (KinderCare). Because this space was previously home to another child care center, the remodel efforts and structural changes will be minimal.
We will spend the next few months focusing on set-up and design of the new Center. This space will feature a nice-sized outdoor area for play and its very own parking lot. We will also have an art and a science lab at this new location.
We have begun actively enrolling at this new site and we will be hiring a total of 35 new teachers to help run this program.
Our Preschool Director Beverly will be leaving our school to become Administrative Director of ChildRoots NW. Although we realize this is very sad news for our Preschool team (children and families included), this is a wonderful opportunity for Beverly, who has certainly proved to be an extraordinary leader and administrator in her current role. We will begin our search for a new Preschool Specialist to replace Beverly this week. For those of you in our Preschool program, look for more details about Beverly’s departure and plans for her replacement in coming weeks. Don’t worry, she won’t be leaving you right away!
Christina will continue to work at our main Burnside site but she will move her office to the new location. Renee will remain at the helm here at our main location. Our Infant Specialist Jessica and our Toddler Specialist Ethan will also remain here at our main location.
We will begin “hard hat tours” of ChildRoots NW in the next few weeks. If you know anyone who might be interested in enrolling at this new space, please contact email@example.com to set up a tour.
