A Description of our School:
- Our aim at Mount Desert Nursery School is to provide a high quality, integrated early education and childcare service.
- We care for children ages 2½ to school age whose families live or work in the Town of Mount Desert, Bar Harbor, Trenton, Southwest Harbor, Tremont and surrounding communities in Hancock County.
- We provide a rich, developmentally appropriate curriculum in a fun, safe and caring environment.
- Our program encourages and assists children to increase independence, develop self-confidence, relate respectfully with people and promotes a growing awareness of their world. Independent daily living skills focus on physical coordination and growth, emotional expression and communication, social interactions and group participation.

-Both programs include an early education curriculum, interactive environment and home cooked lunch.
