  • The mission of the Bennington Early Childhood Center is to provide an intellectually challenging, developmentally appropriate program for children age two to six.

  • Overview:
  • The Bennington Early Childhood Center is a non-profit preschool program that serves children age two to six and offers half- or full-day options for three, four or five days a week.
