Our Story

Learning Years has been a locally owned Preschool in Washington County since 1973.  Our schools were founded and operated by Bob and Lis Richardson who believed in providing a safe, loving, and educational environment for children of working families in our community.  Their daughter Amy was a student at the school and later had her first job there.


In 1998 the schools were purchased by daughter Amy Kight and Lis's sister Tina McDaniel, each of whom had spent many years learning about and working in all functional and operational levels of the schools.  The integrity and deep roots in the philosophy of providing each child with the very best in care and early childhood education was thereby assured.

 

There are currently three Learning Years locations:

Landmark Learning Years is in the Tanasbourne area on the corner of Evergreen Parkway and Venetian Dr, owned and operated by Amy and John Kight.

 

Jenkins Learning Years is in Beaverton on Jenkins road near Cedar Hills Crossing, also owned and operated by Amy and John Kight.

 

Hawthorn Farm Learning Years located in Hillsboro on Elam Young Parkway, owned and operated by Tina McDaniel.   

 

Together with a holistic approach to early childhood education, our creative environment and nurturing teachers provide enriching experiences that stimulate children’s senses and spark their curiosity to promote a love of learning that lasts a lifetime.

At Learning Years, our mission is to provide a safe, loving environment in which to learn.  It is in this environment that a child can open up and experience a sense of wonder and playfulness that will build a foundation for a lifelong love of learning.
