Now Enrolling for Fall 2014!

HFP is now enrolling children aged 3-5 for Fall 2014!


Hawthorne Family Playschool is a play-based cooperative preschool in Southeast Portland. Families are deeply invested in the community and are proud of this school. We’re excited to open the doors for new children and families in the fall.

We offer:

Intimate class size for individualized attention. (14 students with teacher, 2 parents, and often college intern students)

Highly experienced, educated, passionate teacher with 24 years of experience and Masters coursework in Human Development.

Thoughtful and equitable financing (sliding scale tuition, tuition assistance, thoughtful fundraising, fairly compensating our teacher)

A focus on nurturing connections to nature (children are outdoors daily, we have a lush nature playscape instead of a manufactured/static play yard, we collect items from the natural world and use them indoors, we take field trips to natural settings and farms)

Please contact our Membership Chair for more information and to schedule a tour!
