Re: “Vermont Chess Camp of Champions

This was an excellent experience for my son. He took part for the first time last summer and even though he was new and didn't know anybody, he was easily welcomed into the group. William is a fun person and a very knowledgeable chess teacher. My son loved the chess lessons and games, but also the outside times playing games like Capture the Flag. This was the highlight of the summer for him, and we are planning on doing it again.

Re: “Vermont Chess Camp of Champions

My son has participated in a number of these camps and loved them. William is a great teacher, but also makes sure there's lots of fun involved for everyone regardless of their skill level.

Re: “Vermont Day School

VDS is an incredible community for our children. The curriculum is individualized, relevant, and engaging. There is a strong sense of community throughout the building- friendships form across classes from the youngest students to the oldest students. With seamless incorporation of 'extras' such as Spanish, music, drama, STEM, and art the students receive a well rounded education within the school day. Children are learning real life skills that many people do not master until adulthood- executive functioning, organization, working in teams. Each member of the school is welcoming, caring, excited and engaged. As parents we feel we can finally take a deep breath and watch our children grow in this incredible school! Thank you VDS we look forward to many more years!

Re: “Renaissance School

Our child loves attending the Renaissance School. She has excelled with the reading, math, writing, and foreign languages. We love that our child is exposed to languages at an early age. We believe our child is reading far above other kids who are attending public schools. The school fosters a great environment for learning and the teachers are amazing with the kids. We have seen not only in our child but with other kids at the school a bond among all kids regardless of age. There does not appear to be any exclusions among the kids or behavioral issues. The number of teachers to student ratio is great. We believe in the education that the school provides and the teachers and school personnel will do everything to foster a great learning environment for our child.

Re: “Renaissance School

I went to Renaissance from 1st grade until 5th. When you walk in the school you are always happy to be there. All the students are kind to each other and the younger and older grades work together and form friendships. Instead of just doing worksheets, we go outside and learn the lessons by doing a project. My favorite class was French- I loved the interactive games we played to learn vocabulary.

Re: “Renaissance School

My son and daughter are in their second year at Renaissance and are thriving in so many ways. My children transitioned seamlessly into school and feel very at home at Renaissance. Within a couple of months, I was astonished at how much Spanish and French they had learned! I had been trying to teach my children Spanish at home for years, but at school the teachers play games, do projects, and make learning a second language fun. My children have both been challenged academically and are able to work at their level. My daughter reads far above grade level and I was very impressed at how the teachers met her needs and were creative in finding a way for her to be in a reading group at her level. The classes use nature to enhance their learning and spend time outdoors often. They also go on many field trips to places such as a bird sanctuary, apple orchard, pond at Shelburne Farms, Flynn Theater, Echo, Burlington Electric, and more. Because of the small school feeling, my children have developed relationships with children in all grades and feel very connected to kids of all ages. The students are kind and inclusive, follow the rules, and over all treat each other with respect. I have been so pleased to see how much my children have grown, how happy they are, and the many wonderful friendships they have developed at The Renaissance School!

Re: “Renaissance School

I currently have 2 children at Renaissance and it is an incredible school. The teachers are supportive and encouraging and my kids love going to school each day. It is a wonderful, nurturing place where the children in all grades interact as one big family. The language program (Spanish and French for all grades!) and the outdoor classroom at Shelburne Farms are huge bonuses. I am incredibly grateful to have my kids attend such a great school.

Re: “Renaissance School

Renaissance is an amazing school. My children have a love of the outdoors, a kindness in their hearts and are better citizens because of the wonderful academics at this school. Two children went to this school and the third on his second year. We are so grateful to have this gem in our community.

Re: “Renaissance School

We have been renaissance parents for the last 5 years, and we can not begin to express what an incredible education our three daughters receive. The curriculum has far surpassed our expectations and the school does an incredible job of instilling a love of reading in the children. Most importantly, the children love their school and we see this among the whole student body as children enter the classroom with excitement and a smile on their faces each morning. The community is inclusive, fostering a student body that truly cares about one another and instills a strong sense of leadership, camaraderie, and empathy. Together, the school spends a full day at the outdoor classroom at Shelburne Farms, where everything they learned is put into practice in the environment. This is a special place.

Re: “The Janet S. Munt Family Room

You're not going to find a more relaxed or nurturing place for you and your child to bond. Everyone is so supportive and there are no expectations except for you to be supportive, curteous, and the parent you want to be. The diversity of families represents greater burlington and integrates your child immediately into the acceptance and appreciation of different cultures. I went here with my 1st born who is now six! and im planning on bringing my 2nd once he arrive. (And its a plus that the food is amazing). Cant recommend it enough!

Re: “Arabesque Etc Dance

Martina not only has an amazing dance studio with Arabesque Etc., she has created a dance family that nurtures, challenges and loves every one of its members. My daughter is 9.5 and is in her fourth year with the studio. She has loved every minute of it, especially the opportunities for performance - from the Nutcracker Tea before Christmas to the Themed Showcases to the incredible story shows. It's incredible watching her learn and grow as a dancer and a young lady with the unconditional support and caring of Martina, her amazing instructors and the older dancers. Martina's excellence in dance and theater combined with her HUGE heart and love of dance makes Arabesque the ideal home for dancers of all levels. My daughter has loved the camps in the summer and is very much looking forward to camp this summer. Don't miss the show this year (2018) on June 2nd at Colchester High based on Mary Poppins!

Re: “Arabesque Etc Dance

My 10 year old daughter has been dancing here for 3 years, and it's a wonderful environment. The older dancers often help with the younger, and she really look up to them (and they are good role-models!). The kids all support each other and the instructors are all extremely positive and encouraging. The shows are amazing and incredibly creative.

Re: “Arabesque Etc Dance

My 15 year old daughter has been dancing with Arabesque, Etc. for the past several (3-4) years. It has been amazing for her on so many levels both mentally and physically. She is able to participate in several different genres of dance and the high level of teaching combined with the family friendly atmosphere is exactly what we are looking for. Great community, amazing shows, top notch!

Re: “Arabesque Etc Dance

If your kid loves to dance, this is the studio for you. A variety of styles of dance, offered at convenient times. Local kids can take the bus straight to the studio. Before or after childcare can often be arranged. My daughter started taking ballet when she was 13 and this has been such a terrific community for her.
