My Bundle of Joy has been providing outstanding infant and toddler care in the Portland area since 1997. We have delivered our service to over 1,000 families during that time and currently care for 64 little ones in our four locations.
We are state certified infant and toddler care facilities; this means we care for little ones who are 8 weeks to 3 years old. Our infant/toddler to staff ratio is 4:1 so we are able to give lots of individual attention to the children in our care. We strive to make our homes the best in every way with one-on-one love and learning as well as excellent physical care. We maintain a media-free environment with lots of reading and music, where the needs of each child dictates the schedule, creating a soothing daily rhythm to our homes.
We are located in private homes that have been transformed for the children, each offering more than twice the state required square footage. Each My Bundle of Joy home has at least two playrooms including a “Jungle Room.” There are also three separate nurseries, which enable our little ones to sleep soundly in comfy cribs. We have two changing areas as well, and the children are free to roam about their home away from home. Fenced yards are a must and we offer lots of outdoor fun, under the watchful eyes of the providers. Our facilities are bright, cheery, safe, very clean and equipped with a large variety of toys, books, puzzles and all manner of fun things.
Our capacity for each home is 16 children with 4 full-time staff. Each family is free to use their child’s spot as much or as little as they need. Nutritious meals are included. My Bundle of Joy homes are very green; we recycle, and use all natural cleaners and laundry soaps. As we see it, helping to preserve the planet is the least we can do for the children, and their children!
Monet, our Owner & Director, has 21 years of experience operating child care facilities. Our Parent Handbook lays out the exact Policies and Procedures so every family understands what they can expect; as well as what is needed and wanted from them. As our Staff Trainer, Monet ensures every provider is fully trained to our standards from facility to facility and that each is able to deliver the level of service we require.
Monet also sees to it that every facility maintains our expectations for cleanliness, safety and repair. Our staff are an exceptional blend of people, each bringing their unique talents to My Bundle of Joy. They are the greatest assets we have by far! Each is certified in pediatric CPR and First Aid as well as health and safety training. All have passed their criminal history, work and reference checks. Each undergoes an intense training in the successful actions of 20+ years experience as well as forty hours in Early Childhood Development specific to infants and toddlers. But above all, it is their genuine love of children that truly sets My Bundle of Joy apart!
Our children and families here are of the utmost importance. Our Daily Diary Sheets keep an exact record of all care provided throughout the day and are referenced during the briefing when a parent comes to pick up their little one. We have a photo share site where we post many photos for each home monthly. A picture is worth a thousand words and we certainly have lots to say! In addition, each child’s birthday is made a fun and special celebration. Our Parent Resource page has many helpful items for our families: Menu, supply lists, calendars, photo link and inclement weather policy.
We know that finding the perfect Portland daycare for your infant or toddler can be an emotionally challenging experience. Since we opened our doors in 1997, our reputation has grown as one of the finest infant & toddler care providers in the Portland Metro area.
