On Campus Preschool

The Butterfly House
Childcare at VTS is both exceptional and affordable. Led by a team of experienced teachers, the Butterfly House enrolls infants and children ages six weeks through 5 years, readying them both for kindergarten and life in a multicultural society.

The Butterfly House and the Caterpillar Club (for infants and toddlers up to 2 years old) offer mixed-age settings based on play-based curriculum. Children interact daily not only with peers, but also with older and younger children. The curriculum engages a variety of learning styles, and all activities are “hands-on,” since we believe children learn best by doing.
