Let's ReVillage Our City.
Do you need affordable, part-time childcare for ages 0-5?
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 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 accompanies individual villages, as well as channel the energy of those villages into advocating for systemic change so that, one day, all families might have access to the childcare they need and deserve.
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 a little village for ourselves and other households in the co-op.
We help you find your Village of families
We connect you to other families in Bend with kiddos ranging from 0-5 years old while taking personal preferences and needs into account. Our vision is for our villages to be diverse across background and income.
We ask for a minimum 3 month commitment of full engagement and participation in your Village.
We find a location that will work best for your village. Oftentimes, we tend to lean towards spaces that are already “up to code” such as church nurseries and empty educational facilities but if your village is comfortable in operating out of a house, we can help you with the resources and tools to set up a safe space to do so.
