Sellwood Community House has a half-day preschool program for children 3-4 years of age, and a half-day pre-Kindergarten program for those aged 4-5 years. For our younger participants, the focus is on learning social and listening skills, beginning language and math concepts, following directions and cooperating with others. In the 4-5 year class, those basics are built upon with more pre-academics in reading and math for Kindergarten preparation. Play and exploration are the main tools for both groups’ growth and learning. Children can be enrolled for 2 or 3 days a week (Mon/Wed/Fri or Tu/Th) or a full 5-day week.
