Early Learning Center

Who Are We?

We are a non-profit early learning center serving infant-preschool aged children in beautiful York Harbor.  We believe quality early education and care should both nourish the hearts and minds of children and be accessible to all families.  We focus on nurturing the whole child as well as our school community.  Located steps from Fisherman’s Walk, we take full advantage of our location down the road from York Harbor Beach and The Wiggly Bridge.  

Through a combination of traditional preschool lessons, play-based learning, and place-based learning, we foster the magical sense of wonder that shines so bright in the early years.

Who Do We Serve?

We currently have 3 classrooms serving infants through preschool aged children in the greater York area.  We aim to provide a fair tuition rate and welcome families who qualify for Child Care Subsidy.  

Hours and Rates

We are open Monday- Friday from 8:00-5:00. 

We do close for Holidays, a one week Winter Vacation and a one week Summer Vacation.  

Infant rate: $290/week

Toddler rate: $275/week

Preschool rate: $260/week


We believe that childhood should be joyful, filled with great stories, songs, and lots of imaginative play.  We provide a day that is softly structured so that a predictable routine is present but can flex around the needs of the children.  Teachers present traditional lessons in math, science, and literacy including phonics and phonemic awareness.  We welcome members of our community to visit for storytime or music class.  Most importantly, each child is treated with warmth, love, and respect.  Our teachers are very attuned to the emotional needs of young children and provide positive reinforcement, encouragement, and gentle corrections when needed.  

Nourishing the Whole Child

We are so lucky to have a wellness coordinator on staff who meal plans and prepares balanced meals with fresh, local ingredients.  Children are provided breakfast, lunch, and afternoon snack each day.
