Windsor Early Childhood Education Center (WECEC) is a state-licensed preschool program (view Vermont Childcare Licensing Regulations) that is fully devoted to fostering an environment that enhances the social-emotional growth of our children within a nurturing, caring community. In partnership with parents we are dedicated to providing a rich academic foundation that recognizes the individual learning style of each child. We encourage students to achieve their own potential, see the good in others, and be of service to their neighbor.
