Tel: (603) 659-5006
Great Bay Kids' Company is a non-profit organization dedicated to providing quality early childhood education and school age enrichment programs for children.
The Child Comes First" is the basic philosophy of our programs.
We believe that the program must adapt to the child and not the child to the program.
Planning revolves around the needs and cues from each child.
By respecting and encouraging individual abilities, we hope to develop a strong feeling of self-esteem in each child.
Since childrens' basic needs are diverse, we provide for all aspects of the child's development: physical, social, intellectual and emotional.
As part of the USDA Food Program, Great Bay Kids' Company provides nutritious meals daily.
A breakfast and afternoon snack are served in all of our child care programs.
For those children who are with us for a full day or for kindergarten wrap around care, we also provide lunch.
All of the meals meet USDA requirements and guidelines. The meals are served in the classrooms in a pleasant atmosphere in which the teacher sits with the children to encourage appropriate manners and conversation.
