About Us

Mission Statement:

Sweet Pea’s mission is to create a space which is safe and nurturing for all children; where the “whole” child is encouraged socially, emotionally, and academically. We encourage each child to develop a strong curiosity for exploring and learning through play. We respect each child as an individual and offer opportunities to problem solve for themselves and to grow with a positive self-esteem.

Our focus is in creating a rich environment offering many centers for exploring, creating and imaginary play. The emphasis is on social and emotional growth during the early childhood years, ages 1-5. Our academic learning is introduced through activities, games, books themes and sensory play.


  • Sweet Pea Child Enrichment Centers began in 2004 with our first building in Gladstone Oregon.
  • Five years later in 2007 we moved into our second building in Milwaukie.
