Sharing this update from Let's Grow Kids☀️The state of Vermont announced today that child care providers and K–12 staff and teachers will be eligible to schedule a COVID-19 vaccine as early as Friday, March 4 and for certain beginning March 8. We’re pleased to see the state’s vaccination strategy recognizing that child care, like pre-K–12 education, is essential.

On an ordinary day, Vermont doesn’t work without its early childhood educators. The last year has been anything but ordinary, but through it all, thousands upon thousands of Vermont’s early childhood educators remained on the front lines, providing consistent, nurturing, skilled care to our state’s youngest children. We are grateful for the selfless and tireless work of Vermont’s early childhood educators each and every day—especially in the last year—and we are so thankful to see them standing alongside Vermont’s PreK–12 teachers as the next in line to receive the vaccine.

What We Do

For Children

Child development is a process that involves learning and mastering skills like sitting, walking, talking, skipping, and tying shoes.

For Youth

Positive youth development services engage young people in intentional, productive, and constructive ways, while recognizing and enhancing their strengths.

For Families

All families should have access to economic and parenting supports to ensure all children have nurturing and stable relationships with caring adults.

Take Action

Every year, Vermont saves $2,131,041 when each of Vermont’s 15 Parent Child Centers prevents:

  • One woman from entering a correctional facility;
  • One teen pregnancy.
  • One child from needing foster care placement; and
  • One mother and child from requiring public assistance.

Help children thrive

3,877 individuals served in Central Vermont from July 1, 2018 – June 30, 2019
