The mission of the Burlington Early Education Program (BEEP) is to provide
high quality, play-based early education in a variety of settings in our community. We provide assessment and special education services for eligible children within these inclusive settings. We are committed to supporting the growth and development of young children and their families through home, school and community collaboration.
The Burlington Early Education Program uses a collaborative, team-based approach to provide high
quality, play-based early education for children between 3 to 5 years of age. Children attending our
program are provided opportunities to develop skills in each of the early childhood learning domains: science, math, literacy, motor, communication and social-emotional skills.
Children learn best through playful engagement with peers and teachers. Instruction is designed to meet the needs of all learners within a positive, nurturing and diverse environment. All classrooms follow the guidelines of the Vermont Early Learning Standards. We value families as children’s first teachers and as our partners in supporting each child’s growth.
Our teachers and service providers are advocates and leaders in early childhood education at the local, state, and national level. We collaborate with parents, colleagues, partner programs, health professionals, local organizations, and local and national legislators. As teachers and advocates for the earliest learners we have a vital role in preparing children for 21st century learning.
