Part Day Preschool

Educare Central Maine’s preschool program, in partnership with the Department of Education, welcomes children from three to five years old and equips students with the skills they will need for success in kindergarten.

Experienced teaching teams implement a developmentally appropriate curriculum that supports school readiness by developing language, literacy, math, social-emotional, physical, and other skills necessary for successful learners. A safe and supportive learning environment promotes knowledge, interaction, and creativity through individual instruction and collaborative work with parents and families.

Classes are held during the school year, Tuesday through Friday, with a choice of a morning session 7:45–11:15 am or an afternoon session 12:00–3:30 pm.

Meals include breakfast and snack for the morning session and lunch and snack for the afternoon session. Menus follow federal and state guidelines and are prepared by our on-site professional chef and crew.
