Welcome

Annette's Preschool has been an integral part of the Hinesburg community for over 20 years now! Located between Addison and Chittenden Counties, it has given a Smart Start to generations of children from Hinesburg, Bristol, Starksboro, Monkton, Williston, South Burlington, Shelburne, Charlotte, and Richmond! These generations have touched our lives here at Annette's Preschool and in return we have been, and will forever be, committed to enriching the lives and educations of every child we meet.

Our Preschool is open to children from 6 weeks to 12 years. We have designed our program with three different levels to accommodate the appropriate cognitive, physical, social, and emotional needs for different developmental stages. The programs are the following: Infant/Toddler, Preschool (Pre-Kindergarten), and School Age. Located within these links will be information regarding our goals, curriculum, assessment tools, physical space, and any other information pertinent to a specific stage of development.

Philosophy

At Annette's Preschool, our philosophy of early childhood education is based on two very strong beliefs. First and foremost, our staff believes that each and every child is a unique individual capable of learning and success! We provide an inclusive setting that recognizes and caters to children's varied abilities, needs, and learning styles. We believe that to create such an inclusive setting, we must provide the children with balance.

In addition, our staff believes that young children thrive and learn best in an environment that is nurturing, stimulating, and provides a variety of developmentally appropriate experiences and materials intended for the “whole child”. We believe that children learn best through meaningful play and exploration, and encourage a balance of child-centered activities with teacher-instructed curriculum. Our programs integrates curriculum that encourages social, physical, emotional, and creative growth. We believe in positive language, active problem solving, appropriate and defined limits, and positive consequences for desired behaviors.

As teachers it is our duty to serve as positive role models and facilitators, to create empathetic and caring classrooms, and to stay updated with our trainings and certifications to ensure best practice. We believe in the power of love, understanding, acceptance, exploration, autonomy, and balance.
