Top-Rated Childcare In
We’re Open 7:00 am - 6:00 pm
(Mon - Fri)
With a focus on individualized care and relationship building, Atlas Immersion Academy fosters both intellectual and emotional growth, leaving your child ready for Kindergarten and all that lies ahead!
Everything we do is centered around our amazing children and it is our mission to raise the next generation of culturally and linguistically competent global citizens through language immersion early childhood education. This is a magical time in your child’s development and we know that children learn best when emotional bonds are secure and they feel safe. This is why at Atlas we place a high importance on understanding the uniqueness of each child and family. We tailor the physical environment based on this knowledge, to ensure that all children feel at-home and like they belong in their “class family”.
Young children’s brains are like sponges, meaning early childhood is the ideal time to not only immerse kids in a new language, but also to provide them with a stable environment filled with all kinds of people and perspectives.
At Atlas, we value the diversity inherent in a group of multilingual, multinational staff and families, and celebrate that beauty through meaningful sharing, rituals and traditions throughout the year. In turn, children grow to expect that other people may look different from themselves, speak differently, and that these differences are not something to fear but rather embrace and respect.
Research has shown that early childhood is the most effective time to gain fluency and native-like pronunciation in more than one language, and at Atlas we pride ourselves in exposing children to new languages through play, structured environments and routines, and a curriculum which is built upon best practices in early childhood education all in the target language!

What We Believe
At Atlas Immersion Academy, we not only nurture the development of the children, but also foster a growth mindset among our teachers and staff! Our team receives ongoing, annual education and training, surpassing Oregon’s state standards for early childhood educators.
We also partner with parents to create a positive and supportive environment. Frequent parent-center communication is facilitated by a messaging app that keeps parents up-to-date on their child’s day and allows them to receive photos and videos throughout the day. Our open door policy means that parents are always welcome to come into the center or set up a time to talk to the teacher or Director when they have questions or feel the need to talk. Parent-volunteers share their culture and traditions with young learners, widening the understanding of the world and global cultures for all the children in our care.
We believe that by combining the highest quality training for our teaching team and inviting parents to be involved throughout their child’s time at Atlas Immersion Academy, we are able to work as a “village” to raise open-minded, eager learners!

About our West Linn Location
Situated in West Linn, our school provides easy access to the 205 Freeway or the Oregon City Arch Bridge, at the end of HWY 43. This makes it convenient for parents to access during their commute between work and home.
Since our start in Gabriel Park in 2011, we have worked incredibly hard to create the best possible language immersion child development centers in Portland. Our team works continuously to improve our facility and ensure that we are always following the latest and most up-to-date industry practices, especially in regards to health and safety.
Some of the aspects that make our center unique include…
Full Language Immersion! Teachers speak to your child and conduct all lessons in Spanish to provide children with a solid foundation for language development.
Extra Enrichment Activities to add sparkle through art, STEM, music, cooking, and other fun and engaging “specials”.
A Calendar Full Of Fun & Informative Events for the whole family! From monthly virtual cooking classes to language exchange classes, there are many ways to feel like your family truly belongs at Atlas!
Outdoor Time, Rain or Shine! Our belief is that children need to explore the outdoors to engage all of their senses and aid their physical development. Even on gloomier days we go out twice per day. Don’t forget your rain boots, raincoats, and “muddy buddies”!
Healthy, organic, minimally processed meals are made freshly on-site, and are provided every day to fuel busy minds and bodies. No extra cost, just peace of mind!
We’ve got you covered! There’s no extra cost for essentials like diapers and wipes! Classrooms are stocked with everything your child needs to be happy, healthy, cozy, and comfortable all day long!

We require on-going training for our staff through state classes, orientation videos, in-house training, and other certified professionals in the education field.

Here at Atlas Immersion Academy, we take the safety of everyone seriously. We have put protective measures in place throughout our school to ensure we maintain a safe, clean, and secure facility. We have been committed to this cause from day one, and we are fully transparent so that parents can check in at any time.
We employ a daily janitorial service, using eco-friendly products, to maintain an environment that stops the spread of germs. We also teach good hygiene, including diligent handwashing.
We strictly limit access to our facility to authorized personnel and parents and family members who have express permission to be here. Your child’s safety is our top priority.
We understand that you’re probably wondering what your child is up to when they’re not with you. That’s why we allow parents to check in throughout the day via Brightwheel, an easy-to-use parent app.
