About the Provider

Description: We have been offering an appropriate educationally based program since 1982, taking the WHOLE child into account: socially, emotionally, physically, mentally, etc. We're not "just a daycare." LSYC is a 5-star program in VT's STARS, giving parents a 40% higher subsidy rate than programs not in STARS. Three enrollment options available: 1) school year session, 2) summer session, 3) vacation camp sessions (which are offered during the school year). Private one-on-one swim lessons available during summer session. Flexible scheduling to meet each family's needs. Open 7am to 5:30pm. Pre-K program is 8 am-2pm. 12 to 18 hours/week of FREE public Pre-K available for 3 & 4 year-olds. Many Dorset families can receive a scholarship from the town to attend our summer session for free. Parents provide their own child with food and drinks for the day. Special classes included during the school year, i.e. gymnastics, yoga, ice skating, Hullabaloo, music, Hildene workshops, etc., as well as several field trips. We also integrate Spanish and sign language into our curriculum. Many opportunities for parental involvement - completely voluntary, of course.
