About Our School

Mission Statement

Portland Circle of Friends and Family Preschool (PCFFP) serves young children by providing a play-based program, which builds self-esteem and encourages problem-solving skills.

Who We Are

PCFFP has been in existence as a cooperative preschool in Portland, Oregon, since the fall of 1996. The preschool is operated by parents and guardians, and continues to provide a valuable educational service, at a low cost, to families within the community.

The Caterpillar class is for children aged 2 & 3 and meets Tuesdays and Thursdays, 9am-12pm.

The Butterfly class is for children aged 4 & 5 and meets Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays, 9am-12pm.

Our Philosophy

PCFFP offers an experiential hands-on learning environment that encourages independence, positive social interactions, and meaningful learning experiences.

We believe in helping children build high self-esteem in a non-competitive atmosphere where personal challenges are valued as a natural happening from which we learn. We believe it is of primary importance to help children learn to accept what is beautifully unique about themselves, others, and the world around them.
