Help NDS Become First Net Zero Preschool in Oregon
A dynamic preschool in the heart of SE Portland offering full day programs for 2 1/2 to 5 year old children.
New Day School offers full-day preschool programs with 2, 3, and 5 day schedule options.
We help children to uncover the interconnected relationship between their own lives and the garden.
We prepare each year for our festival of lights by creating lanterns and learning traditional Diipavalii songs.
The children love our spring festival where they get to dance around the May Pole.
You can now support New Day School through Amazon Smile. Learn more on our In the Community page.
Daily outdoor time, rain or shine, in New Day’s expansive play yard and gardens, provides opportunity for the children to explore and imagine in a natural setting. Natural playscape, sturdy climbing structures and bountiful gardens create many playful options and challenges for the children.
At New Day School we nurture the curiosity and thirst for knowledge inherent in all young children. Our curriculum is designed to allow children to gain confidence in their personal strength, an awareness of their individual gifts, and the desire to share their joy with others in society.
