Our state licensed Chickadee Preschool Program is based on Maine’s Department of Education Early Childhood Learning Guidelines. Using weekly themes the forward-thinking and creative curriculum honors the child’s imagination, and respects the role that teachers play in making learning exciting and relevant for every child. The teachers are coaches and leaders, encouraging children to discover new things and to learn by playing. Program Highlights Include: Kids in Motion Classes (Preschool Physical Education); Free Swim; Jesup Library Adventures; STEM activities and learning opportunities.

Children must be at least age three and fully potty trained. A Y membership is required. Financial assistance is available for membership and program fees.
