Our mission & vision
ReVillage works to ensure that all Central Oregon families— across income, race, language, orientation & identity, and background — have the care and opportunity they need to thrive in work and in play by cultivating affordable, accessible, equitable childcare cooperatives; empowering parents; cultivating community; and advocating for system-wide, family-friendly practices and policies.
We imagine (and work toward) a world in which all families have the community support and access to care they need in order to thrive in work and play.
PLAY is the way
Play-based learning is a type of early childhood education based on child-led and open-ended play. It is child-centered. Play itself is a voluntary, enjoyable activity with no purpose or end goal. Play-based learning helps children develop social skills, motivation to learn, and even language and numeracy skills.
