First Years has been educating and caring for children on the Island for more than 23 years. We have children as young as 4 weeks, all the way up until the day before they start kindergarten. Our teachers are thoughtful, and they strive to nurture each child’s cognitive, social/emotional, language and physical development at his or her own pace. We offer scholarships to our families, and employees, for our child care center. We also award an annual college scholarship to a graduating Bainbridge High School student who plans to further their own education in the Early Childhood Education field, courtesy of donations and fundraising efforts. Our employees all have access to a fully paid for by grant college education as well. We understand the importance of quality education, and believe it’s never too early, or too late, to start!
