Welcome to Little Vikings Child Care

Located on the campus of Portland State University!

Are you 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 children ages 6 weeks to 12 years old. You can reserve care in advance, or just walk-in (although we can’t guarantee space will be available unless you reserve it). PSU students, staff, and faculty 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. Little Vikings serves PSU students, staff, and faculty, but we also have select openings for the greater community.  Click Here for our Community Rates.
