Little Eagles Daycare & Preschool offers a preschool program for children 3-4 years old. Our school serves families in the greater Houlton area and is designed to help your child grow in a positive, Christian, learning environment. Academic, social, and motor skills are addressed in a play-based, teacher-directed, Bible-based curriculum for children. A licensed childcare center, Little Eagles offers year-round services Monday through Friday with child drop-off as early as 7:45 a.m. and pick-up as late as 5:00 pm.  Learning at Little Eagles Preschool is purposeful but fun! Here, students will learn through individual and group play, circle time, and one-on-one time with staff. A typical day at preschool includes free play at our learning centers, circle time that includes pledges, weather exploration, an introduction to a letter of the week, numbers, shapes, colors and opposites.  Good habits and manners are also integrated into all we do each day. We at Little Eagles have the special privilege to care for and teach your child in a positive Christian environment! Our program is designed to meet your family’s needs whether it be only a 3-day educational experience or full-time 5-day daycare that includes education as a bonus! Introduce your child to a solid biblical and academic foundation that will complement what you are teaching your child at home.   We believe every moment is an opportunity to learn and grow. Whether we’re engaging in play, creating art, or participating in a game - each activity is thoughtfully planned out to make the most of our time with your child. If your child is enrolled in our High Flyers Afterschool Program, you can have peace of mind knowing that, not only are they being cared for, but they’re also being engaged with and ministered to as well.  We pride ourselves on using a custom-made curriculum created just for us that incorporates S.T.E.A.M activities, games, crafts, videos, and devotionals to enforce the year’s theme! Serving students up to 12 years of age, the High Flyers team has restructured the program to allow for great age-appropriate activities and more opportunities to connect and engage. The participants are separated into three groups based on maturity: High Flyers Junior, High Flyers, and High Flyers Elite throughout most of the program between 2:30 and 5:00 pm. Our afterschool program is more than just a place for your child to wait around while you finish out your workday, it is their next adventure of the day!
