“Start with the Arts”

VSA Vermont’s award-winning Start With The Arts program is an experiential, on-site literacy program for home- and center-based childcare providers and the children they care for ages 0-5.

Children deepen their engagement with quality children’s literature through experiences in every artistic genre, all designed to support engaged, creative learning. Our instructors support and guide providers, while providers practice creating and documenting their own Start With The Arts lessons. By the end of the program, providers have the inspiration and confidence to continue the use of the model on their own.
