The Burlington School provides a balance of academics and play, ensuring each student develops core proficiencies and discovers their unique skills and interests. In a truly nurturing environment, your child will gain a strong sense of self confidence while learning how to work in collaboration with others.

Program Highlights


  • Small class sizes: With an average 13:1 student-to-teacher ratio, every child receives individual attention on a daily basis. Your student’s talents will be fostered and they will be personally coached in areas of weakness.

  • Tailored academics: Small class sizes allow us to tailor academics to fit your child’s unique abilities. The pace of study is always set to maximize each student’s learning potential.

  • Thematic approach: Our thematic approach to teaching makes learning more natural and fun. As students discover how different subjects and disciplines relate to one another, they are able to learn in a truly holistic way.

  • Hands-on learning: All lessons are interactive and designed to engage young minds. Our creative kindergarten teachers foster social development through team activities and fun learning centers.

  • Technology integration: We prepare students as 21st century learners. Using computers, tablets, and Smartboards, your child will develop technological literacy while discovering new tools for problem solving.


Transitional Kindergarten

The Burlington School offers a unique transitional kindergarten program that provides continual development for students as they make the leap from preschool to kindergarten. This is an exciting full-day program for children with birthdays that exclude them from kindergarten eligibility, or those who would benefit from the gift of time to hone academic and socio-emotional skills before kindergarten.
