The Milton Early Education Program believes that high-quality early childhood experiences positively impact a child’s future academic and social success. We provide an individualized, whole-child curriculum based on each child’s unique abilities. Our research-based curriculum is aligned with Vermont Early Learning Standards and supports development in nine developmental areas: social-emotional, language, cognitive, physical, literacy, mathematics, science and technology, social studies, and the arts. Learning experiences are designed to meet the needs of all children within the context of a positive, nurturing, and inclusive environment. We value families as children’s first teachers and as our collaborative partners in supporting each child’s growth.
The Milton Early Education Program currently operates eight half-day sessions; four in the morning from 8:30 am to 11:30 am and four in the afternoon from 12:30 pm to 3:30 pm; as well as one full-day session, which is in collaboration with Champlain Valley Head Start. Classrooms are taught by Early Childhood Educators or Early Childhood Special Educators in collaboration with Speech-Language Pathologists, and Occupational and Physical Therapists. Children in our program attend Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays. We are licensed to serve up to 135 children.
