Serendipity Child Care Center, LLC is a state licensed child care facility serving the children of the Central Maine Community 3 to 5 years of age and their families. All staff members are First Aid & CPR certified. Our license will not exceed 20 children so it’s almost like having a private daycare.
A Developmentally Appropriate curriculum creates a wonderful environment for children to learn, grow, and prepare for Kindergarten. Our classroom is made up of interest learning centers that your child will explore throughout the morning. The children will have the freedom to choose between them during “Work Time” and will experience a balance of Teacher-directed and Child-directed activities. We know that children learn constantly through hands on play because they work so very hard at it! We support the importance of play on a growing child’s mind, body and spirit.
Our director, Marla Duperry, brings a rich heritage of child care experience to the center. Beginning as her family nanny, she went on to work in a child care center, became a Home Day Care provider, a Head Start Teacher, Center Director, always a Preschool Teacher and her greatest role: a mother. All the while teaching and bringing music to children and communities wherever she was. A guitarist for over 40 years Marla believes strongly in the magic and importance of music in the development of young children.
Our day care center provides a joyful learning atmosphere, where children sing, explore and play simple percussion instruments. These developmentally appropriate activities support several State of Maine Early Childhood Learning Guidelines including but not limited to: Listening Skills, Artistic Expression, Discriminating Sounds, Independent Exploration, Phonological Awareness, Following Directions, Interacting with Others, Coordination and Balance, Developing Speech, Understanding Basic Concepts and Spatial Awareness.
