Little Vikings is an Oregon certified Childcare center. Our staff follows all procedures and practices outlined by the State of Oregon. We are certified to care for a total of 15 children, including up to 8 infants at a time. Our childcare license number is CC502824.


Marisol Barce is our Lead Teacher and Director.


Little Vikings Childcare staff meet all Oregon Certified Childcare standards for training and background checks. Many of Little Vikings staff are students here at Portland State University. Staff are required to have training in First Aid & CPR, Recognizing and Reporting Child Abuse, and all other state of Oregon required training. Children must be kept within strict adult to child ratios, this is why we love it when you reserve care ahead of time. All of our staff bring experience and a love of children to Little Vikings – you can get to know them a little bit below!
