Someday Bigger Daycare

Someday Bigger Daycare is here to help kids ages six weeks to six years find their happy place so you can be out finding yours. We are located just up the road from South Ridge Lodge across from the ski school area with a convenient drop-off right at our facility. We are a fully licensed childcare facility through the State of Maine Department of Health and Human Services. 

Someday Bigger Daycare is open for guests on Saturdays and Sundays from December 2 through March 31.

Reservations are required and can be made online. Reservations must be booked at least 24 hours prior to arrival. We suggest booking early as space is limited. 

The state requires that children be separated by age so that child/staff ratios can be met, however, an older sibling may be allowed to visit a younger sibling in the younger sibling’s room, for brief periods 

Age Groups 

Infant

Ages 6-Weeks to 12-Months

We realize that babies like to enjoy their own schedules. When you arrive, the staff in the Infant Room will want to know all about your child’s normal routine.  

Toddlers

Ages 13-Months to 2-Years

Toddlers enjoy a daily schedule of free play, snacks, puzzles, songs, and large motor activities. Weather permitting Toddlers will go outside to play as well. Naptime is in the early afternoon. Please bring any comfort items for rest. 

Preschool

Ages 3-Years to 6-Years

Preschoolers participate in a play-based program. We follow a daily schedule that includes crafts, story time, group time, rest time, snacks and lunch. There are toys and materials that support a growing mind and body such as puzzles, art materials, books, trains, cars, and imaginary play.

We take the children outside to play on the playground or go for walks, depending on the weather and business levels; for the safety of the staff and children, during busy times the decision to spend time outside will be at the discretion of the Director. Snacks and lunch are included in the daily rate.
