When the the Heartworks Preschool in Williston was founded in 2002, it had four classrooms. Today, the school has eight classrooms, due largely to the quality and popularity of its programming. In 2017, five additional classrooms was added to provide care to six week olds through 23 months. The second largest of all of the Heartworks campses, Heartworks Williston enjoys a quiet, sunny location in Blair Park, with large, well-lit classrooms and three playground areas, as well as a small forest nearby for exploring nature. Heartworks in Williston has easy access to Tafts Corners and Interstate 89, and a location in the heart of Williston.
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 character development such as 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 faculty 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.
