The SVSU Early Education Program received a 5 STARS rating when we received a Certificate of Achievement for "demonstrated accomplishments in providing quality child care above and beyond compliance with the State of Vermont's basic regulatory standards for licensed programs".

SVSU Early Education Program Mission:  Children and families are the heart of our mission. Center and community based services are provided through direct services, consultation, and collaboration. We create and promote nurturing, inclusive, and developmentally appropriate learning experiences for young children.
