The University of Maine Children's Center, Our Experience

  • Established in 1974, the Children's Center has over 30 years of continuous child care service to the University community.

  • Our first infant-toddler program started in 1981, one of the first infant-toddler child care programs in Maine. Since opening, staff members have cared for over 1,160 infant, toddler and preschool aged children.

  • College-level students, enrolled in early childhood courses, are sent to our programs to be mentored by our very capable staff members. Administrative staff members serve as a resource for statewide child care program and policy development.
