Over 16 Years Of Loving Care, Joyful Learning, & Unshakeable Parent Partnerships

Preschool & Child Care Center Serving Salem, OR

Parents Are Active Partners In Care

You work with teachers and staff to give your precious little learner the best start possible. Build trust, and feel heard and understood in an ongoing parent-teacher relationship that prioritizes and centers around your child.

Lesson Plans Meet Your Child’s Unique Needs

Expert teachers use the Creative Curriculum® to plan daily learning to include your child’s interests and support overall development. Engaging activities and hands-on, messy play in a carefully guided environment ignite their natural curiosity.

Open-Ended Activities Promote Independence

Child-led learning focuses on activities that engage their interests and allows discovery without the restrictions of set outcomes. Selecting the materials they want to work with promotes independence, while exploring the possibilities through play supports self-confidence.

“Loose Parts” Play Inspires Exploration

With access to simple items made from natural wood, like napkin rings and cotton reels, your child uses their imagination to experiment. As they use loose parts to stack, count, sort, and create, they build problem-solving and self-expression skills.

Preparation For The Future With Socio-Emotional Guidance

Teachers use the Second Step® curriculum to help children build the empathy and social tools they need for school success. With support and gentle guidance, children learn to share, take turns, and communicate effectively.

Fun And Adventures With Multiple Outdoor Playtimes

Your child gets out into the fresh air every day, whatever the weather, for the chance to let off steam. More messy, active, and loose parts play in the garden builds motor skills and a connection with nature.

Lena and Priceless Treasures have been a fantastic child care facility for our littlest one. It is obvious that Lena and her team are dedicated to the kids and giving the best care and it shows. You get to see what is going on during the day with what they are doing, eating, sleeping, and it's great. This is a fantastic place to trust your kids at and would not hesitate to recommend anyone to Priceless Treasures.

I can confidently say Lena has really built something special and hired a phenomenal team. Both of our daughters are so excited to go each day and love telling us about all the fun things they’ve done when they come home. The Brightweel app they use is fantastic with photos/videos posted throughout the day as well as information on what they ate, when their naps were, diaper changes, and other updates/announcements. The whole experience made us so happy!

My son entered a little after age 2 and has thrived in this environment. My son had some developmental delay concerns I wasn’t aware of and his wonderful and perceptive teachers brought it to our attention in a caring and professional way and his doctors and therapists are constantly impressed with how much he is improving in his daycare setting. The entire staff is amazing and the owner is very involved and personable.

My son is 9 months old and currently in the infant room with Chelsea and Yesenia. He has some challenging health needs, which means that my husband and I are constantly communicating with daycare, to relay the latest recommendations by our medical team. Chelsea and Yesenia have been absolutely WONDERFUL, ensuring that all of our son's care needs are being met and quickly and effectively communicating with us should any issues arise. We cannot recommend Priceless Treasure highly enough!

I love that I don’t have to worry leaving my son when I go to work. I know he is safe and loved, not only by his teachers but by all of the staff. Chelsea and Yesi are an amazing team and provide lots of love, hugs, and age appropriate activities for all the littles. There are never tears with drop off, and that means the world to my husband and I.
