The Center for the Development of Children

Sandy's Pandas - Preschool for 3 Year Olds

We have one Panda room which is led by Sandy  and Jean

Sandy  enjoys reading, hiking, crafts and spending time with her family. Sandy has been with us since 1997. Sandy's philosophy in teaching children is; "Every child should have fun while learning!"

Jean has been with the center since 1994. She enjoys baking, taking walks, reading and knitting. Her personal teaching philosophy is, "I treat every child they way I would want my own child to be treated."

Maryellen is our floater. She was a Boston school teacher for many years. She enjoys skiing, playing golf, and watching most sporting events. She also enjoys cooking, spending time with family and all things "Maine". 

Our Panda room has a three day minimum enrollment policy.
