At Child and Family Opportunities (CFO) we understand the needs of working parents. Our child care centers are open hours that accommodate most parents needs for care. Children spend their time at our centers with well-trained staff who provide guidance and care for them throughout their day. Activities are based on children’s interests and developmental needs both in the classroom and outside on our playgrounds. We provide nutritious, well-balanced meals (breakfast, lunch and afternoon snack) at no additional charge to all enrolled children.
Our classrooms are designed with children in mind. We provide multi-age groupings in our classrooms. We believe that mixed age grouping provides for continuity of care (maintaining relationships with their teachers or caregivers), more individualized curriculum and it feels more like a “natural” family. Our staff receive ongoing training and professional development that increase their skills in developing caring supportive relationships with children and families.
Our child care rates are competitive for our area. In addition we accept State of Maine subsidies including Voucher, ASPIRE and TANF transitional childcare (TCC) subsidies. We also offer a sliding fee scale and in-house subsidies for eligible families.
