A Burlington, Vermont Preschool and Kindergarten-Grade 3

The International Children’s School offers an exceptional early learning environment that honors the individuality of each student. Our classes focus on traditional academics like Science, Math and English while integrating lessons in Handwriting, reading, music, dance, painting and foreign languages (French, Spanish and even Chinese – when available!).

We often take local field trips (think Shelburne Orchards in the Fall and ice skating in the Winter) and host international learning events (United Nations Day).
Take a look at our Facebook page to see pictures and descriptions of our past trips and events!
