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.

Applicants to VTS who wish to enroll their children in the Butterfly House will be accommodated on a first come, first served basis as determined by the date on which their registration deposit is received. The number of spaces available in the Butterfly House varies from year to year; priority is always given to the children of VTS students enrolled either full-time or in a degree program, and VTS employees. Every effort is made to accommodate eligible children, especially the children of parents with full-time employment.
