Let us come to you! A+ Child Care to You, established in 2007 is committed to providing high quality and affordable on-site event based child care which promotes play, fitness, and education.
We travel across the Multnomah County and beyond to set up a safe and engaging environment for children of all ages, including a variety of crafts and children’s activities. Meanwhile, parents are near by attending an event such as a conference, workshop, wedding, celebration or a community affair. While we supply all the bells and whistles for the children to have a great time, we ask the host requesting child care to provide the room, tables, chairs, and food.
We also offer on-call temporary child care for families on an individual basis.
These four goals drive all of our efforts!
- Establish A+ Child Care to You as an excellent resource and leader for on-site child care initiatives.
- Provide high quality child care that supports families balancing work and activities.
- Empower children’s developmental growth through exploratory and hands-on play.
- Bridge the gap between families needing access to high quality affordable child care and professionals whom provide optimal child care services.

As a proud parent and the business owner of A+ Child Care to You, I strive to put parents at ease knowing that their children are in a healthy, safe, and engaging environment. A+ Child Care to You is an outgrowth from Babysitters on Call, which is a similar business in Bend Oregon I worked with for 5 years full time and from afar have continued to work together as sister business partners. In addition, I have a great deal of experience assisting in early child development centers, elementary classrooms and student internships with professional organizations. With great excitement I completed my Bachelors in Child and Family Studies with a focus in Education from Portland State University in 2008.
