Choosing childcare isn’t easy! Here are some resources that may help you in finding childcare in Bangor:

Local childcare providers with a website:

Search services:

  • Penquis: Penquis’ search form requires registration, and I found that I got the most results when I left all fields blank.
  • State of Maine: The state’s website allows you to search for licensed caregiversby ZIP code, town, type of care, and number of children being served.


  • Craigslist: Maine’s Craigslist offering is pretty heavily weighted to the southern part of the state, but there are occasionally people in the Bangor area posting daycare openings or searching for childcare.
  • allows you to search for sitters in your area.
