Southern Maine Children's Academy

Inclusive Early Childhood Education


“When we treat children's play as seriously as it deserves, we are helping them feel the joy that's to be found in the creative spirit. It's the things we play with and the people who help us play that make a great difference in our lives.”

-Fred Rogers

Southern Maine Children’s Academy (SMCA) offers a preschool program that encourages children to learn about themselves, their peers and the world around them. Our philosophy is that each child should be recognized as a unique individual, and that their growth should be nurtured through active playing and learning. 


The staff at SMCA recognize that play is a child's primary occupation. Our goal is to facilitate the development of skills that will serve as a foundation for your child’s learning and development throughout their childhood. Our highly trained teachers not only facilitate play and pro-social relationships, but also provide learning experiences that address all domains of The Maine Early Learning Guidelines.


Our open door policy and daily communication with families will enrich your child’s overall learning experience. We have created a warm and nurturing program that is welcoming to all children and their families.
