Description

Summary


The Plymouth Schoolhouse is a 4 STAR accredited Early Child Care Center, serving children 24 months to 12 years old and their families in Plymouth, Vermont. The Program has been in operation for the last four summers. Our emergent curriculum recognizes the importance of play and strives to create connections with the natural world and the community in which we live. Teachers plan curriculum based on the demonstrated interests of children and the belief that children actively engage in the construction of their own knowledge. The classroom is set up to be a teacher in itself and values natural light, green plants, quality materials and toys and a warm, welcoming atmosphere.


The Plymouth Schoolhouse will be shifting into an Infant/Toddler childcare later this summer, accepting children as young as 3 months old by the Fall, and operating year round. New furniture will be purchased and the space rearranged to accommodate the young children of our town. The Executive Director and the Program Director/ Classroom Teacher will work closely to support the families that The Plymouth Schoolhouse serves.
