Yellow Wagon believes that children need an opportunity to explore and experience activities through themselves. Children will be free to select materials and activities that are designed to help them discover and problem solve.  As well as teacher-based activities to work one on one with your child and their individual educational needs. At Yellow Wagon we will view every child as a unique individual and will plan to meet each child’s needs.
Our primary goals at Yellow Wagon:
  1. To be prepared for kindergarten
  2. To build confidence and a positive self-image
  3. To have fun!

How we

stand out:

*Small Class Size

*Small teacher
to child Ratio
(8:1 Ratio)

Yellow wagon has been the best choice for our kiddo. We were attending another preschool before yellow wagon but due to the pandemic our old preschool was closed down. Luckily enough, Yellow Wagon was up and running while our old preschool continued to be shut down. Our son who had some hurdles to get over, was able to flourish in a way we had not seen from him. Rachel and Amy are incredible. They have been able to help him tackle and overcome those obstacles and prepare him for big kid school. I would be lost without them. I am so grateful for this school and the teachers. I would highly recommend Yellow Wagon to anyone. It is truly a blessing to have had such a wonderful experience and warm loving teachers. I really feel like when I drop him off, he is loved and cared for the same way he is at home.

Rachel has grown up in the Portland Area all her life and couldn't imagine a better place to grow her business!

It has always been a dream of hers to have her

own preschool facility after graduating. In 2015,

she opened her own child care facility in Hillsboro.

In August of 2019, she relocated and opened doors

to our current Preschool Program here in Beaverton!

 She is very passionate about helping children

and teaching them new things. Her favorite part

about working with children is listening to the jokes.

In her free time she loves cross stitching, playing volleyball and hanging out with her husband and pup, Luna!

Amanda has always had a passion for working with children. She has over 12 years of experience in early childhood education. In 2010 she decided to quit working after the birth of her first child to be a full time stay at home mom. Now, after spending the last 12 years focusing on her own kids, she is ready to get back into the classroom. 
During the last 12 years at home she has continued working with children by becoming involved with the PTO at her son's school and becoming the art literacy co-coordinator. She loves teaching art lit and planning events and fundraisers for the school. 
In her free time, Amanda loves spending time with her husband and 3 children. The beach is her "happy place" and her families favorite weekend getaway! She also loves crafting and weekly family movie nights.
