Little School — Early Education for Ages 2 to 5

Portland Christian Little School

“I thank my God every time I remember you.” – Phil. 1:3 NIV

Portland Christian Little School is comprised of Christian teachers who strive to provide an extension to families where children ages 2 – 5 can learn and grow in a loving, nurturing and safe environment. Our primary goal is to guide children in experiencing the love of our Lord Jesus Christ. The Little School uses a biblical worldview curriculum that stimulates physical, mental, social and, most importantly, spiritual development. Research shows that early childhood is the most important time of development in the life of a child and the foundation of everyday skills prepares a child for future academic success. We believe that “play” is the work of a child, and they learn best by doing so through teacher guided and child initiated centers. Daily activities and centers are focused on the weekly Bible story, phonics, math, handwriting, and imaginative play.

PCS Little School also provides on-campus enrichment activities such as:

  • Weekly chapel services
  • Stretch & Grow
  • Bricks 4 Kids
  • Kona Ice Truck
  • Bookmobile
  • Crikey Creek

PCLS Announcements & Reminders

Important PCLS Information

  • Label, label, label! Please make sure that your child’s belongings – backpack, lunch box, water bottle, and sweaters/jackets – are labeled with your child’s name or initials.
  • With cooler weather approaching, it’s a good idea to go ahead and keep a light sweater or jacket in your child’s backpack.
  • We are enjoying our outdoor time on the playground! To prevent injuries, please send your child to school in tennis shoes every day. Sandals and Crocs are cute but tend to get mulch in them on the playground.
  • Car line – morning car line begins at 7:40 and runs until 8:05. During this time, teachers will be outside to help assist your child out of the car and into the building. Parents, for the safety of our teachers and your children, we ask that your preschooler be on the passenger side of the car so that they will be safe from vehicles passing on the opposite side. Thank you!
  • Families of half day students can utilize our midday car line for pick up as well beginning at 11:30. You may pull up in front of the Little School and form a line. Teachers and staff will escort your child to your car and assist them with getting in.
  • Our email address is – littleschool@portlandchristian.org. This email will be checked daily by the Little School administration. Please send any questions that are not classroom specific to this address, including questions regarding billing, schedules, illnesses and other general questions.
