"We must realize the truth of ourselves. . .We are one human family. One part of the other. My old workhorse Teddy and the fancy registered horse visiting us had no trouble eating out of the same dish. We must discover the same." -Lucy Poulin
H.O.M.E. Daycare is a non-profit organization and is licensed by the State of Maine as a
Small Child Care facility. We provide high quality, affordable child care to families of
all income levels, assisting low-income families to become self-sufficient. Our well
qualified, nurturing staff offers a developmentally appropriate and safe learning
environment for young children while their parents work, receive training, attend school,
or have a day for themselves.
We believe that....
*All children deserve quality learning and individual learning experiences
*Relationships with caring parents, caregivers, and their peers are key
*Children learn best when they feel safe, loved, and secure
We serve children ages six weeks to twelve years of age in our daycare center, and we
are able to have up to twelve children per day. We also offer after school and vacation
care for children aged six to twelve. Children will be admitted without regard to race,
culture, sex, religion, orientation, ancestry, or disability when a slot is available. The
program will attempt to accommodate a child with special needs consistent with the
requirements of the ADA. Developmentally appropriate practices help guide our
curriculum which emphasizes on creativity, choice, growing, independence, cooperation,
and building friendships.
