Friendship House Preschool and Childcare is a certified program, subject to annual State, Health, and Fire Department inspections. We have operated successfully since 1997 and are proud of our zero-complaint record with the State of Oregon. We are a home-based facility, located in a separate space created exclusively for it. The size of the preschool building offers the space, equipment and design of a center, while the small enrollment provides the comfort and nurturing of a home atmosphere.
