Andover has a new childcare facility that can serve up to 160 children ages 2 months to 8 years old.
The Learning Experience had its grand opening Oct. 31 and is currently enrolling children, Executive Director Wendy Branconier said.
The center offers classes in various topics including Spanish, sign language and enrichment courses, like yoga.
They have had to implement stringent cleaning protocols because "with the pandemic, people are afraid to send their child to a care facility," Branconier said. "But we have health and safety protocols we follow every day."
The Learning Experience follows state mandates for checking temperature and cleaning regularly, she explained.
