Orchard Valley's Little Lambs Early Care Center opened in September 2016 and is located on Country Club Road in Montpelier. Little Lambs operates year-round, five days a week, from 7:30am to 5:30pm. Children may be enrolled for 2, 3, or 5 days per week. For children attending short-weeks, the available combinations are as follows (as openings allow):
Thursday/Friday (2-days/ week)
Our youngest children begin as infants in the Rosebud Room and move up to the next room as they age and achieve developmental milestones.
The Center provides infants and toddlers with warm, nurturing care from a staff led by a Waldorf-trained, Early Childhood professional. The children spend their days in a small, family-like group with children of different ages. Experienced and loving caregivers encourage children to develop their new sense of self in an environment designed to nurture and support their continued unfolding. The daily rhythm provides a balance between active times and rest times, nourishing each child's send of health and wellbeing.
