Helen Gordon Child Development Center welcomes educators to visit our program with a long standing history and dedication to engaging with our colleagues in the early childhood professional community. As a program within Portland State University, we embrace the University’s motto: Let Knowledge Serve the City. We invite you to contact us to arrange a visit. Requests for individual and small group tours can generally be accommodated with some advance notice.

Each year Helen Gordon Center offers an annual Professional Development Initiative, welcoming Early Childhood Professionals from around the community to share our stories.

During these events, we are inspired to construct more meaningful and powerful ways to express our ideas and share our experiences. Sharing our thoughts and ideas with visitors offers a unique opportunity to get feedback on their work and consider even further possibilities. Our intention is to welcome you into a deep and thought-provoking exchange that moves us all.
