We are a privately owned and operated company. The center has been designed to provide the highest quality childcare and early childhood programs for families in the greater Bangor area. We offer an enriched learning environment in a high quality setting for the children and families we serve. We utilize the Creative Curriculum™ which provides emotional, social and cognitive experiences for your children during their most important years of learning and development. In addition, our location is a secured building with key code access for our Parkside families. The center is equipped with modern, spacious classrooms and plenty of natural lighting, a professional Early Childhood teaching staff and park-like playground.
Our objective is to provide an enriched learning environment in a very high quality setting for the children and families we serve. Parkside CLC utilizes Creative Curriculum which is a program that NAEYC recommends. Creative Curriculum incorporates the goals of teaching children to get along well with others and become enthusiastic learners. The difference with Creative Curriculum is that it enables teachers to teach children HOW to learn for a lifelong love of learning. The Creative Curriculum focuses on four areas of development: Social/Emotional, Physical, Cognitive and Language.
Childhood Nutrition, Art, Music, and Literacy classes are provided!
Maine Discovery Museum science classes with Miss Trudi, Nature Science classes with Miss Bryn, winter trips to Fields4Kids, family events, classroom volunteering, and field trips for 4+ are all a part of our curriculum.
