Early Childhood Programs

We offer developmentally appropriate environmental education for Maine’s youngest learners.

Our community preschool programs offer young children opportunities to interact with nature and each other in ways that foster stewardship and empathy, increase science knowledge and cognitive skills, and promote growth and development across learning domains. Our programs align with Maine’s Early Learning and Development Standards and can be adapted to fit the needs of your school or classroom.
