Early Learning Center Year-Round Childcare Program Details

  1. The program is licensed, working towards higher STARS status (currently have 2!), and have highly trained (and lovable) staff.
  2. We have a primary focus on developing age-appropriate social and emotional needs, with a secondary focus on outdoor exploration.
  3. Enrollment is open, with the understanding that there will be many transitions in the next few months.
  4. Transportation will be provided from the bottom of the Bolton Valley Access Rd. Scheduling will be determined by the demand.
  5. We currently accept preschoolers (3-5 yrs) in our mixed classroom setting. A waitlist has started for preschool slots in our separate learning space, and will roll out as soon as we have enough interest. This program will accept universal pre-k funding, and will be nature based (with some swimming on the side).
  6. Open Monday – Friday,  8-5pm, with extended hours starting soon.
  7. If you’re interested in our drop-in program, please make sure to contact April Hayes to make a reservation.
