The goal of Brattleboro Centre for Children is to promote the healthy development of children. We recognize that all children are special, and we work as a team to provide the best care and education possible. Children are allowed to grow and learn at their individual paces. Our child to adult ratio is lower than state recommendations, and our teachers meet or surpass all state guidelines. Our teachers are provided numerous opportunities for professional growth, thus promoting a learning environment for all.
We are located in downtown Brattleboro, which allows us to access KidsPLAYce and Brooks Memorial Library on a regular basis. We are influenced by the wonderful diversity that comes from being in town. We have our own gardens to raise our own vegetables, and the Loaves and Fishes soup kitchen provides lunches and meals for children and families on a weekly basis.
Our program is staffed with a team of teachers for each classroom. Each team consists of a minimum of a teaching associate and a teaching assistant. The teacher's qualifications meet or exceed the Vermont Child Care licensing requirements.
