Robin's Nest Children's Center
Robins’ Nest is a high quality, non-profit, early care and education program in the Old North End of Burlington. The center opened in 1985 to provide quality care and education in multi-age groups with high ratios of adults to children. This provides an opportunity for children to travel through developmental stages at their own rate and to learn from one another. Our mission is to provide a play-based environment for infants, toddlers and preschoolers; nurturing minds, friendships and families. The Robin’s Nest respects and values each individual family and their involvement is essential to the care and education that we provide.
