PDX Child Care is a directory of child care options in the Portland area. We include the following types of child care providers on this website:

  • Day Care: An environment for children to play and socialize, often while a parent is unable to provide care due to working. See all day cares.
  • Preschool: An environment for children to play, socialize, and become familiar with academic concepts, such as pre-literacy, pre-math, and problem solving.

We provide you the opportunity to claim and own your listing so that you can make sure it’s always up to date.
