We encourage children’s creativity, kindness, and learning through an active and supportive program of play and discovery, and are proud to hold accreditation from the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC) and to be a Maine Roads to Quality (MRTQ) Level 4 program – the highest designation offered by the state’s early care and education professional development network.
