We enrolled our son in Burlington Little School last fall, and it has been such a wonderful experience! The student to teacher ratio is great (2 teachers for 9 kids in the pre-school class), there are several different options for schedules, the staff is passionate and cares deeply about the school and the kids. He's learned so much, academically and socially. There's a wonderful sense of community within the families enrolled. I'd highly recommend this school to any families looking for the best preschool around.
My daughter is in the pre-kindergarten class and she loves it! The teachers are wonderful and the class is the perfect size (13-14 students) so there are plenty of kids to interact with but the teacher-to-student ratio is low. The staff is really helpful and the school encourages parents to be involved in the school. The curriculum encourages social, emotional, and academic development. My daughter is always learning something new and am I always happy to listen to her talk about it. I highly recommend this school.
I have had my kids at Burlington Little School for over a year now. The school grounds are great. Children get a lot of outside time. The staff is excellent. My children are learning letters, numbers, reading, being exposed to science and social studies and a controlled fun environment. In addition, there is great community and community support.
We enrolled our daughter in BLS last year, primarily for socialization. We visited other schools, but only BLS had an environment we felt comfortable with. It allows kids to be playful children, while still teaching early literacy and math skills. The teachers incorporate the interests of the kids with their lesson plans and work to make each student feel accomplished in their strengths, while gently guiding their weaknesses to a better place. We couldn't be more pleased with our choice of schools for our daughter and highly recommend other parents to take a look!
We as a family had a wonderful time last semester at Burlington Little School. Our son has acquired a great set of friends, sprouted quite a vocabulary, has maintained a great relationship with his teachers and most importantly had a wonderful time. In being new to the area, my wife and I really appreciate the openness of the school, the innovation in the working garden, natural surroundings, and classroom activities. For us as parents, we ve met quite a lot of really interesting people with similar interests. For us as a family, we feel that Burlington Little School is a really great fit for us.
