Let's ReVillage Our City.
Do you need affordable, full-time childcare for ages 2-5?
Do you need affordable, part time childcare for ages 0-2?
Do you desire to build meaningful community among other families?
Do you feel alone in the champion work of balancing parenting, work + everything else in life?
ReVillage is a non profit, play-based, community-centered, childcare co-operative hosted in Bend by families like you.
As education professionals and community organizers, we know that when families create community, they are more powerful together. ReVillage strives to be a nurturing, relationship-centered childcare and co-working cooperative that utilizes the care and skills of teachers, parents and community volunteers to create affordable, high quality child care for all families.
HOW REVILLAGE WORKS
Our set up works best for families that view this program both as an affordable option and an opportunity to be active participants in building & sustaining this co-op.
Our infant, part time program also takes place in a classroom at First Presbyterian Church in Bend.
Because this option (infant care) is part time, it is a true "co-op" model and is mainly led by alternating parents participating in the program with the support of the head teacher of ReVillage who is on-site.
This program is T,W,Th, 8am-12pm with the option to add another day with more participating parents.
Parents give a 4 hour shift per week and receive 2, four hour shift in child care in return.
Parents make monthly, sliding scale payments of $5-$50.
ReVillage - Full Time Care
ReVillage full time, high quality child care takes place at the nursery inside First Presbyterian Church in Bend.
Families are asked to commit to a minimum 3 month participation in the program while making monthly sliding scale payments ranging from $300 - $500.
In order to keep tuition low, parents are included in our ratios as a teachers aide and are asked to "give" time by supporting our lead teachers 8 hours a month. There are options to give morning shifts (8am-12pm) or an afternoon shift (12pm-4pm).
Giving time is an important aspect of our program. If your hours or your partner's hours do not allow for you to give time to the co-op during our operating hours, other arrangements can be made.
Part Time Care
6 weeks - 23 months
Participating family members must complete a background check and have their fingerprint clearance card in order to participate in the program.
Participating family members must complete a day of orientation and training (CPR & First Aid, Safe Sleep, Child Abuse, etc.) prior to starting.
While "giving" time to the co-op, the lead teachers will need your support and will guide you on how to help throughout the day.
We offer online videos, parent education, and webinars either pre recorded or on zoom regarding child development, play based learning ideas, and social emotional learning.
