Preschool (36-48 mos)

The White Birch Center for Early Learning is a year round child care program for children ages one to five years old. As a License Plus designated child care center, White Birch is committed not only to quality child care for children ages 1 to 5 but also to early learning. Our early learning center also includes a kindergarten wrap around program to accommodate families who need child care and also have children in the morning or afternoon kindergarten program at Henniker Community School. White Birch Center has two playgrounds, a one- and two-year-old playground and a three- to five-year-old playground. All ages have individual classrooms located in the same building.
