About Us

About Parkside

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, as well as physical development during their most important years of learning and development. In addition to experiences for your child, our location is a secured building with key code access for our Parkside families. The center is equipped with spacious classrooms and plenty of natural lighting, a professional Early Childhood teaching staff, and natural playground. 

Our Staff

We strive to provide the highest quality of care; this begins with our teachers.  We have built a team of teachers, which many of have been part of our team for many years.  This begins with our Preschool Manager, Miss Lisa who has been part of our team since 2007.  Our leadership team also includes our infant and toddler manager, Lynna, who has been here since 2009 and our Office Manager, Allison has been here since 2014.  Our managers provide support in our classrooms, train our teachers and oversee the educational services of our program.  We have consistent teams in our classrooms to help provide continuity; it is our goal for parents to see their child’s teacher at drop-off and pick-up times.

Our Center

Our priority is always the safety of the children in our program.  We accomplish this by having a locked system in place at the entrance of our building.  All of the equipment in our building is up to date and code.  All of our full-time teachers are CPR and First Aid certified; we also encourage our part-time teachers to attend these trainings.  For the safety of the kids in our program, we have a professional cleaning service who comes in at the end of our business day.  Our program is a “shoe free” program where children can safely play on our floors and know that foreign materials will not be in our play areas.
