Executive Director

Penacook Community Center, Inc.

For over 60 years the Penacook Community Center has provided exceptional programs and affordable services to the residents of Boscawen, Bow, Canterbury, Concord, Loudon, Franklin, Penacook, Pembroke, Salisbury, Weare and Webster. The Penacook Community Center is truly a cornerstone of this immediate region and plays a critical role in providing safe, healthy and constructive opportunities for physical, social and emotional well-being, as well as educational and recreational enhancement.

Our professional, caring and dedicated staff is proud of the Center’s rich history, and we salute the men and women who gave so much over the years to make the Center what it is today. Though times have changed, our focus remains the same: we too are committed to providing a safe, enriching and happy experience for the people we serve. We have renewed energies at every level throughout the organization and we continually strive to improve the quality and variety of our programs and services. We are very proud to say we are a NAEYC accredited education facility and community center that serves thousands of individuals in all of the varying programs offered.

The families we serve at the Penacook Community Center are primarily working-class families where the primary caregiver(s) must work just to make ends meet. Sending their children to a childcare center is a necessity for most and many of the children are in our care 10 hours a day, 5 days a week, 52 weeks a year. We offer these families affordable quality childcare programs, before and after school programs, vacation camp programs and summer camp programs for children from 6 weeks to 12 years of age.
