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.
Tasha has been working in the ECE field since 2001. She started out as an assistant teacher and now works as a lead teacher in the TOT classroom. She spent most of her career at Wonder Works Learning Center at Crotched Mountain working with all age groups and even briefly as an assistant director. Tasha realized that her passion is working with the children, not the paper work. She lives with her three beautiful children-one of which attends White Birch! They like to spend their time outdoors, reading and just being together.

Dana is a substitute teacher at White Birch. She is a 1988 Graduate Of New England College with a major in English, Psychology and Early Childhood Education. She began working at White Birch in 1989 as the lead teacher for the toddler program. In 1996 she began the process of adopting the first of her two daughters. She then became a stay at home mother during that time and later on as her daughters grew older her and her husband Adam created and ran their own family centered surf school based at Jenness beach in Rye, New Hampshire. Now that their youngest daughter is in College, Dana is happy to once again return to the incredible White Birch Community which is and has always been dear to her heart.
