Educare Maine

Maine Educare is the first Educare site in New England and is designed to serve between 150 and 200 mostly low-income children from before they are born to age 5, during this most critical brain development stage. The goal is to measurably increase their school-readiness and significantly reduce unnecessary special education costs.

Parents and caregivers are essential partners in preparing children for school and Maine Educare will support them with education and comprehensive supports to improve health, self-sufficiency and long-term parent and child well-being and success.

A private/public partnership, Maine Educare will serve as a state-of-the-art professional development and resource center for child care professionals across the state, as well as a teaching lab for students seeking an early childhood degree in Maine.
