Welcome Providing early childhood education to the heart of the Mad River Valley for over 40 years.
Mission The Waitsfield Children’s Center is committed to providing a safe, high quality, nurturing family environment for all, where children learn from discovering and exploring the world around them.
The Waitsfield Children’s Center is a non-profit organization that provides early childhood education. Our philosophy is to provide a high quality nurturing and learning environment for all children enrolled at the Center. WCC offers daily preschool, toddler and infant programs that combine structure with a play and nature based curriculum. Our program is guided by the needs of the children, nature and our surrounding environment.
Originally named the Valley Nursery School, the center moved to our current location at 6307 Main Street, Waitsfield Vermont in 1979. The center has been in operation for over 40 years, offering care to generations of children, some of which are now board members and teachers at the center.
WCC participates in Vermont’s STep Ahead Recognition System (STARS) for Child Care and Early Education. STARS recognizes the accomplishments of registered and licensed programs for achievement above and beyond what is required by state regulations for licensed and registered child care programs. The Waitsfield Children’s Center is a 3 STARS program
