Heartworks Shelburne

Heartworks School in Shelburne is the home of our first preschool program, started by Louise Piche in 1988. Located just north of the village of Shelburne, Heartworks Shelburne is adjacent to the green at Shelburne Commons in Buildings B and C. These buildings provide spacious classrooms along with lots of green space to explore in the courtyard, a field and playground behind the buildings, and a nearby forest. The tremendous playground area also has a sledding hill for winter play. Heartworks Shelburne now shares a campus with Heartworks, Renaissance, and Endeavour’s Main Office, Endeavour Middle School and some programs for Renaissance Elementary School. Heartworks Shelburne enjoys easy access to Route 7, ample paved parking and close proximity to Shelburne, Charlotte and South Burlington.

My husband and I are continually impressed and comforted by the excellent care our daughter receives. She is growing, learning, and thriving in the supportive environment created by her teachers and other staff members.

Our Preschool Program:

At Heartworks Preschools, we are truly engaging in the “Work of the Heart;” our name reflects our commitment to provide a nurturing academic, social and emotional experience for each child. Through school-wide themes such as Stories Around the World, Animal Homes and People Homes, and Family and Friends, as well as a STEAM Program in the afternoon, we build on children’s natural curiosity about their world, with programs designed to enrich each child with a passion for learning, faith in the goodness of humanity, a deep connection with the natural world and a strong sense of compassion for all living things. In this warm and welcoming environment children feel safe and confident, enabling them to ask questions, to experiment, to develop supportive relationships with teachers and peers and ultimately to open their minds to the important lessons that will help them become successful learners and good citizens in their community and the world.

Our Heartworks teachers are experienced and kind; most are state-certified with degrees in Elementary or Early Childhood Education. Teachers differentiate instruction to meet the distinctive learning needs of each child and they guide children to recognize their unique potential, while maintaining a compassionate approach.  Within small classes, teachers strive to model exemplary character and curiosity, spark each child’s interest in learning and help each child to be successful as she or he navigates the world.
