Schoolhouse programs nurture each child’s innate curiosity and encourage independence of mind, self-reliance and resourcefulness. Our goal is to lead children to discover the rewards found in the process of active inquiry and in respectful, cooperative work with others. We seek to support respectful awareness of self, community and the environment.

Programs include Story Time at The Schoolhouse (preschool for 2-4 year old children), Elementary (early K-5th grade), Middle School (6th-8th grades), Afterschool (for 4.5-13 year olds) and Camp (summer and vacation camps for 4.5-13 year olds).

The Schoolhouse Learning Center is a State of Vermont approved elementary and middle school and licensed childcare center that has provided quality programs for over 40 years. The Schoolhouse is located in South Burlington on 28 acres of fields and wetlands with a large playground, gardens and three ponds. We also partner closely with Bread and Butter Farm, giving our students access to the farm and the surrounding forests. Our signature Farm Food Forest program is an integral part of the school-wide curriculum.

The Schoolhouse also supports low- and moderate-income families through dedicated scholarships. We offer compassionate needs-based scholarships, accept childcare subsidy, and we are eligible to receive Act 62 funds from sending districts for 3- and 4-year-olds.
