Burlington Integrated Preschool

Thank you to Bob Mercier for the opportunity to present the benefits of the Burlington Integrated Preschool to Town Meeting on Monday Night.  I am attaching the presentation – burlington-integrated-preschool.  Expanding preschool opportunities for Burlington families is good for children and is a smart investment.  A Burlington school district goal should be to provide a high quality preschool experience for every Burlington family that desires it.



One way to ensure high quality, but allow for variety is to form an Early Childhood Council.  Every community where I have worked either had an existing early childhood council or started a council.  The council involves all early childhood providers – public, private, religious, and secular.  I am happy that Louise D’Amato, our Integrated Preschool Director, is taking the initial lead on this council.  See her invitation below…

To Whom It May Concern:

The Burlington Public Schools is looking for participants to be part of an Early Childhood Council in Burlington. Your membership is critical to our success to work in expanding quality preschool opportunities for Burlington families. This Council will host monthly meetings to discuss strategies and ideas on how to best serve all preschool age children in Burlington. In addition, the Council will develop and host monthly workshops according to its needs.  I anticipate that the Council will also want to open up some of its workshops to the Burlington community when the workshop topic is such that the Council and Burlington families would benefit from this mutual participation.


I would appreciate it if you would please take a few minutes to answer the attached survey questions. Once you have completed the survey, please return it to me in the self-addressed envelope provided at your earliest convenience.  


Thank you for your time and I look forward to working with you in expanding quality preschool opportunities for Burlington families.


Louise D’Amato

Director of Burlington Integrated Preschool
