Our history and mission

Kids' Corner is a non-profit, community-based childcare center in Bar Harbor, ME. It was designed primarily to serve the needs of families and businesses in the Mount Desert Island area. Kids' Corner opened its doors in September of 1990 after three years of planning. Representatives from eight local businesses in cooperation with a group of island citizens were responsible for its conception and realization.

The mission of Kids' Corner is to provide a high quality, developmentally appropriate program in a safe, responsive environment for children six weeks to enrollment in kindergarten. The center provides all day care, Monday through Friday. Our aim is to provide a safe, reliable environment for children so that they may feel secure and happy while spending the day at the center.

Kids' Corner aspires to be an inclusive program, a place where children of various backgrounds and with different needs can meet and play together. We hope to build a sense of community by providing a supportive environment for all children.
