Our Mission & Philosophy

Orono Early Learning strives to provide every child with a valuable, safe and developmentally appropriate learning experience.  In developing young minds, we recognize the importance of collaboration among parents and teachers and therefore we cultivate open, mutually respectful and communicative relationships with parents.  We build a solid foundation for each child’s school and life success by helping them gain key social, emotional, academic, physical and creative skills. By holding ourselves to high standards of excellence, we can help each child develop a love for learning which they will keep with them far beyond their Orono Schools experience.
