Current members of the ad hoc committee on child care at Reed College (2015): S. Alston, J. Corpus, N. Nicholson, G. Sherman (chair), and J. Sonntag.
Reed has contracted with Growing Seeds, which has two other locations in Portland and was chosen from a pool of several highly qualified providers. It stood out for having an educational philosophy and approach the committee believed would be most compatible with the Reed community. In addition to the quality of their care, the committee was also impressed that food for meals and snacks would come from owner Kyrie Eppley’s organic farm.
The facility is located in an existing campus building at the corner of SE 28th and SE Steele. It opened on August 1, 2015 and currently serves 55 families from both the Reed and Portland communities.
