Nearing the Finish Line for 2019

Castine's 1895 water tank is transforming into a community early learning center. Windows and doors are in!  Follow our progress on Facebook!

Getting Ready for the Future!

In the Summer 2019, the Community Childhood Learning Place will be moving to its new community-built facility at 39 State Street in historic Castine, Maine.
The community's 1895 standpipe on Windmill Hill has been redesigned and repurposed by the architectural firm of Mohr & Todd of Charlottesville, VA and Southwest Harbor, ME into a 4,000 square-foot learning center for the children of Castine, Penobscot and Orland on the Blue Hill Peninsula.
We are very excited to be nearing completion of this project by August 1, 2019. Your support is still needed and very much appreciated! Donate your tax-deductible dollars today to finish the building. 



From water tank to learning center – follow our transformation!

We have hired a Director, Margaret Allen 

Please welcome her to our community.

We are still interviewing for teacher positions.
