Owl is an equal opportunity employer that has been in business for 11 years. We are made up of two small schools that provide for 36 families in and around the Portland Metro area. One school is our infant and younger toddler school which then feeds to our older toddler/preschool location. We offer consistent caregiving for the first 5 years of life by having the majority of our teachers working at both schools. We opened as a Montessori school but evolved into a community that has strong influences in both Montessori, Reggio & RIE philosophies. Our school grounds are good certified Backyard Habitats and our indoor spaces are designed with the utmost care in regards to the environmental health of the children at our schools.
