Welcome to Little VikingsĀ Child Care at Portland State University!

Are you a Portland State University student, staff or faculty looking for just a few hours of care for your child ages 6 weeks to 12 years? Or perhaps your school-age child has a “no-school” day when you still have class? Little Vikings was created just for you! We provide walk-in, reserved and occasional care for the children of PSU students, staff and faculty. You can reserve care in advance, or just walk-in (although we can’t guarantee space will be available unless you reserve it). You can reserve care for the entire term, up to 5 hours per day and 20 hours per week. We also provide day camps for days when Portland Public Schools does not have school, but classes are still in session at PSU.
