Bar Harbor, ME 04609 | (207) 288-0004

We strive to provide a developmentally appropriate environment for preschoolers based on the following belief -Children at this age have an amazing capacity for imitation and learn best through hands on experiences and by watching others. At this age, the emotions are still wide open and the child is very sensitive to his/her environment. As such, our preschool is a gentle place filled with opportunities for meaningful play and learning through discovery. The school features beautiful, natural toys and surroundings and loving teachers worthy of imitation.

Contact me for a tour and to get to know my philosophy and care model. Finally a home daycare centered on organic food and philosophy and preschool called Growing Tree Childcare. I have an expansive organic vegetable garden that will be providing some of the food, will be following an eco-healthy model and will become Eco-Healthy Childcare Certified. I do not use pesticides, or other chemicals. We are in Westbrook close to the Windham/Portland town lines. I have a BA from Georgetown University and a Law degree. I've been teaching children in the setting of babysitting/nannying since I was a child up until I had my three wonderful children (8, 5.5 and 2.5). I also coach minor league baseball and tball. Both of the other teachers have their education in early childhood development and one has been a headstart teacher prior to working with us. Our age spots range from 6 weeks up until 6 years. Hours are 7:30-5:15 pm and all food (breakfast, snacks and lunch). At age 2.5, children are transitioned to the preschool program at no additional cost. I am putting the finishing touches on the layout of the daycare. I plan to be open September 4 at the latest and am accepting applications now! A one week deposit secures your child's spot. In the event we are unable to open at the designated time, any deposits will be refunded. Please contact me at 286-5475 or I look forward to helping your children grow!
