About Keene Day Care Center

As you walk through the pink doors of the Keene Day Care Center, the first thing you notice is the sounds; the sounds of children doing what children do best – exploring, discovering, moving, questioning, discussing, and interacting.  You hear the laughter, and sense the warmth and caring.  You realize that you are entering a special place.

Keene Day Care Center children are “learning to play and playing to learn” – a reflection of what current research indicates about young children and brain development and the assimilation of new information.  It implies a child-centered curriculum rich with the magic and wonder of figuring out how things work.  It lays the foundation for a lifetime of learning.

Two year old Jonathan has chosen a simple 5 piece “tools” puzzle to play with.  He picks up the piece shaped like a hammer.  He knows exactly what to do.  Bang, bang, bang!  He smiles with the satisfaction of creating a loud noise.  This catches the attention of two of his friends, and together they team up to create their own special puzzle-piece orchestra.
Isn’t it interesting how such a seemingly simple activity can be so full of complex social, cognitive, sensory, and physical learning experiences?

Keene Day Care Center is proud to have been caring for the children of the Monadnock region since 1970. For the children enrolled, Keene Day Care Center is a fun place to be.  For the parents of these children, it is the peace of mind that allows them to be part of a productive workforce in the community.
