St Clare Preschool is a Catholic early childhood education program that fosters joy, curiosity, confidence and spiritual connection in a welcoming community.
The Toddler Class is a place of exploration and socialization:
Hillary: I grew up on the Oregon Coast in Manzanita and moved to Portland as a teenager, I have lived here since. I have fourteen years experience and training in early childhood education. I have worked at several different preschools and enjoy all ages of children. I spend a lot of time outside. I love kayaking, backpacking, and horseback riding. I have two wonderful children. I see every child as a total individual and create curriculum around that vision.
Annie:I grew up in Wasco, a small town of about 300 people in Northeastern Oregon. As the daughter of a rancher I developed a love for the outdoors. I especially love to spend time with my malamute puppy Khaleesi and my horse Marti on my frequent visits to my hometown.I joined St Clare Preschool in 2014, prior to that I worked as a Certified Nursing Assistant at OHSU.I love working with children and I am thankful for the opportunity to work in a nurturing environment where children can learn and experience new challenges that will help them build their confidence while at play.
