On behalf of the LPC Board of Directors (the Board), I would like to share news about a leadership change at LPC. Chris Giguere, Director of LPC, has decided to retire at the end of this calendar year. Chris literally built LPC from the ground up and has led this Center for nearly 40 years, impacting the lives of over a thousand children and families! Chris’s passion for early childhood education, play-based learning and excellence is the life-blood of LPC and she has provided a strong foundation for LPC’s future.

We are happy to share that Darcy Kiley will be promoted to the Director position (from Assistant Director) and Caz Harrison to the Assistant Director position (from All School Support Teacher), effective January 1st, 2023. 

We are very excited for Darcy and Caz to take on their new roles in the coming months. Chris has also graciously agreed to stay on as an advisory resource through the following year in an emeritus role. 

Chris’ last day will be December 23, 2022.  A proper goodbye ceremony for Chris is being planned for the spring when the warmer weather will allow us all to gather outdoors.

The Board would like to thank Chris, Darcy and the entire LPC staff for their thoughtful contributions to this upcoming transition. Please be in touch if you have any questions.

Best Regards,

T. Eric Ballard, Ph.D.

President, Lexington Playcare Center Board of Directors

Accepting applications of all ages for our waiting list.

Our toddler daughter attends LPC and we couldn’t be happier with the care and education that she receives there! The teachers are incredibly patient, kind, and creative – they come up with interesting and educational ways to engage the children. The student-teacher ratios are one of the best in the area and the facilities are clean, engaging, and fun for kids of all ages. After coming to LPC from knowing only a nanny her entire life, our daughter’s transition was seamless. One week of sadness has now translated into months of fun and excitement about attending “school”. We are so thankful to the staff at LPC and highly recommend it for any parent looking for a fun, educational, and engaging environment for their little one.


My youngest just left after 4 years, and my oldest was there for the 3 years before that. I absolutely love LPC – they loved my kids as if they were theirs, and supported and celebrated their very different personalities. It is the best! Almost worth having a 3rd kid so we don’t have to say goodbye.
