Children's Place


We are partnering with Bright Beginnings Learning Center to serve more families in central Maine.

After two years of exploring many options, and with great consideration, it has been decided that The Children's Place Early Care & Education Center will end activities as a program of The Maine Children's Home on Friday, February 28th. On Monday, March 2nd, Bright Beginnings Learning Center - Waterville will open its doors.

Child care will continue to take place in the same building on the Dorothy 'Bibby' Alfond campus with a number of the same staff, and ideally with many of the same families, with room for more.
