Kindercare To Move Headquarters To Portland

MONTGOMERY, Ala. - KinderCare, the nation's largest preschool and child-care company, plans to relocate its corporate headquarters from Montgomery to Portland, the company said yesterday.

Company officials said the relocation will be carried out in several phases throughout 1997 and possibly into early 1998. The company expects to find a facility in Portland by the end of March. At least half of the administrative functions will be moved to Portland this summer, company officials said.
