BRATTLEBORO -- The Little Arrows Early Childhood Center will host a series of three open houses. They will be held Aug. 9 from 5 to 7 p.m.; Aug. 11 from 9:30-11:30 a.m. and Aug. 15 from 5 to 7 p.m.
Little Arrows is an educational program under Vermont Center for the Deaf and Hard of Hearing, Inc. Little Arrows is open to serve the greater community in addition to deaf, and hard of hearing population. Children age 6 weeks old to 5 years old are eligible. Little Arrows has three classrooms, an infant room, a toddler class and a preschool class.
Open enrollment and the announcement of the new Toddler Room will be celebrated as well as opening the doors to new families for the fall in all three of the programs.
A Bilingual Communication approach is practiced at the center. Children are taught and communicated with both spoken English and American Sign Language (ASL). The communication mode used will provide the children with the skills to communicate with their deaf peers, their deaf parents/siblings and the program staff.
Because Little Arrows is a part of VCDHH, children have access to the campus’ various facilities and resources, including the Austine School for the Deaf’s library and gym, and the campus nature trail and pond. The campus is wide and safe and provides an excellent environment in which Little Arrows children can explore and discover.
