Little Animals

Be the kindness you want to see in others

Our mission is to provide childcare that embraces children’s natural desires to play and explore in natural and inclusive environments, protected from the hurried life beyond our doors. Kids as we all know, growing up too fast, and in these times are making them grow up even faster! We are focusing on slowing things down and taking a calmer approach This will be applied to arts and crafts, to reading, playing and overall. Allowing the children to work on things at their own pace in a structured environment allowing them to stay focused.

Crystal King

Maine Values. Maine Daycare

Hi! My name is Crystal King. Many of you may not be familiar to me in our small town of Boothbay, because I am relatively new to the area. My family and I moved to Maine to be more emersed in the wildlife, among many other things! That is why I have decided to call us Little Critters! I had been out on Maternity leave with my youngest boy when we first moved. When we were all settled in, I went to look for work and I quickly realized, there was a lack of daycare in the area with wait lists for quite a while! With me out of work and a need for myself and the community, I decided to open my own daycare. With having my own children in daycare from a young age, my standards are of the utmost high. I want to run a daycare I would feel more than comfortable with my own children going to.

We aim to provide high-quality education and care for your child, in a secure and exciting environment. Our service promotes equality and values diversity.
