Child Development Center

The Preschool Experience

The Child Development Center (formerly NorthStar Learning Center) offers an educational experience uniquely tailored to the individual needs of children from the time they are toddlers until they enter kindergarten. Our program is staffed by certified teachers, each with a strong foundation in early childhood development and special education. Our low 1:1, 2:1, & 3:1 student to teacher ratio classrooms support individualized attention in an atmosphere of integrated learning. Developmentally appropriate learning experiences are designed around curriculum tools and based on the latest scientific research on how children of all abilities develop and learn. As part of Easterseals Maine, we provide pediatric expertise to support an integrated curriculum and to provide therapeutic intervention when and where it is needed.

Our Philosophy

The Child Development Center values the uniqueness and dignity of all children. It is a joy and a privilege to be part of a child’s time of discovery, learning, and growth. We provide a safe and nurturing environment where each child’s accomplishments are treasured. Children are active participants in individually tailored learning experiences that promote their cognitive, emotional, physical and communicative development.
