EARLY EDUCATION

The BRSU is committed to providing and supporting high quality early education programming. The BRSU provides in-district early education programs at the Manchester Elementary Middle School, the Mettawee Community School and the Mt. Tabor Preschool. The BRSU also partners with many other local preschool programs within our Supervisory Union boundaries. Vermont legislators recently signed into law Act 166 which requires all Vermont school districts to provide universal publicly funded prekindergarten education for a minimum of ten hours per week for 35 weeks annually for all 3, 4 and 5 year old children who are not enrolled in kindergarten. Please see the links below for accredited preschool programs in the state of Vermont who are eligible for Act 166 funding. Our school boards have proposed to create a Pre-Kindergarten region in accordance with Act 166. This proposal is will be reviewed by State agencies. The proposed region would include Bennington, Rutland, Windham and Windsor Counties. For more information, please contact Daryl Houk at 802-362-2452 ext. 1518.
