The Schoolhouse Learning Center nurtures each child’s innate curiosity and independence of mind.

The Schoolhouse Learning Center is a state of Vermont approved K-8 elementary school and licensed childcare center that has provided quality programs for over 40 years. Schoolhouse programs nurture each child’s innate curiosity and encourage resourcefulness and independence. Families are invited to be a part of all Schoolhouse programs and are a vital part of the educational experience.

Programs include Story Time (preschool for 2-4 year olds), Elementary (K-5th grade), Middle School (6th-8th grade), Afterschool (for 4.5-13 year olds, enrollment open to other area schools), and Camp (summer and vacation camps for 4.5-13 year olds, also open to the public).

The Schoolhouse is a STARS-rated program (4 stars) and is eligible to receive childcare subsidy and Act 166 funds. The Schoolhouse also has a generous scholarship program.


Story Time at The Schoolhouse is for children 2-4 years old, with a focus on play- and nature-based activities and gentle nurturing of emergent reading in older students.
