Generating Positive Outcomes

For many students, school can be a daily challenge. For some, there’s no one at home to help with school work. While for others, there are language and cultural barriers to overcome. Many also deal with personal and family issues that make it difficult to focus on their studies. All of these issues can lead children to believe that they can’t be successful at school – or life.

Neighborhood House’s School Age child care program serves as an important force in the lives of Portland-area youth and their families. Our highly regarded school-based program promotes educational success and family involvement, providing culturally-relevant content thanks to our committed and multicultural staff.

Enrich Your Child’s Life

The School Age Child Care Program

Neighborhood House runs before- and after-school programs at four Portland Public Schools elementary campuses in N and NE Portland: Boise-Eliot/Humboldt, Chief Joseph, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr, and Sabin.

Children from working families have a safe, fun, and nurturing home away from home.

Parents have the peace of mind that comes with quality, affordable child care.

Extended-day activities include:

  • Homework help, tutoring, and academic classes.
  • Art, sports, and other enrichment.
  • Safe, supportive spaces before and after school.
  • Summer enrichment programs.

Full-day care is offered on vacation days, teacher in-service days and other days students have off from class.

During the summer, the School Age program holds several weeks of full-day summer camp. Each week has a theme, which includes special guests, field trips and fun activities. Schedule and applications will be available in April.
