A Message from the Executive Director

A new name. A new logo. A new website. We’ve had quite a facelift. But you should know that the decision to rename and rebrand our organization did not come to us casually. In fact, our strategic branding work began more than a year and a half ago. We have spoken at length to parents, community partners, staff, and board members to develop a full, authentic vision for who we are and where we are going as an organization. We know our true story is an important one to tell. And it’s time to really tell it.

Did you know, for example, that we are a premier early learning program in Central Maine? Our teachers are not only licensed, but degreed, and they engage children in a results-driven curriculum. Our goal has always been to help prepare children for success in school and opportunities beyond. As a result, more than 90% of our students meet or exceed developmental targets for school readiness after just one year in our program.

We have a strong history. Now we’re positioning ourselves relevantly for the future as we continue to respond to the evolving needs of our most important constituents – the children and families of Androscoggin County.

We believe Promise Early Education Center more accurately reflects who we are and what we do for the children and families we serve and care so deeply about. Furthermore, we are just so excited about our new name and look. Promise Early Education Center will continue, as we have for 51 years, in providing children with high quality early education and whole-family support to help both children and families reach their full potential.

We are thrilled to welcome you to Promise Early Education Center. Here, we believe that every child, every family has promise.
