Kid Logic Learning has been fantastic. When our family moved to Vermont two years ago, finding a team of people that would teach our daughter like she was one of their own was our top priority. We found that team in the group of wonderful teachers, people and educators at Kid Logic. They take their time and care to develop the whole child, from building positive relationships to delivering traditional classroom and holistic learning experiences with their garden. Kid Logic Learning was founded upon a clear mission; under the direct leadership of Crystal Thompson, they strive daily to bring out our child’s potential and creative spirt. Our daughter would not be the young lady she is today without the Kid Logic family.
Our Mission is to honor children and families for who they are and the strengths they already possess, in an environment that empowers them to learn, discover, and become their best selves.

At Kid Logic Learning we strive to offer children the most valuable experiences that are firmly rooted in the development of relationships, the environment and curriculum.
Foundations of Learning
Providing a culture of meaningful relationships that develop a sense of self, self-regulation, problem solving, social skills, empowerment, positive language and communication.
Recognizing Each Child’s Uniqueness
Honoring children as capable individuals by supporting their creative expression, understanding, temperament, nurturance style, authentic needs, and learning styles. Adjusting environments to support and honor the strengths and true potential of children.
Exploring the World Around Us
Welcoming a diverse community of cultures and profiles creating responsible sustainability, for our planet, embracing and teaching concepts of wellness and healthy living.
Enriching All Children’s Lives
Designing and implementing experiences through emergent and creative curriculum, wellness, art, music, movement, nature and intentional environments that meet the needs of children’s sense of wonder.
Stimulating Minds for Growth and Development
Observing, documenting, and recording to support children’s interests and the development of cognitive, language, social, emotional, and physical learning experiences.
Forming and maintaining deep connections with self, families, teachers, school community, and resources. Living by principles that maintain high quality standards for teachers, children and families in a professional growing community within our school.
At Kid Logic Learning, we believe in helping children learn to be good stewards of their world. We focus on what that looks like for young children, how they can be change-makers, and how they can work to reuse, reduce, and recycle, as well as repurpose and create their own materials, foods, toys, and so much more. As we create this sense of responsibility and compassion for the earth, we help the children in the overarching goal of becoming better citizens and caretakers of our world. Children practice sustainability through gardening, chicken caretaking, composting, recycling and the use of reusable materials in play.
Family & Community Relationships
Community development is an important part of our school community (Kid Logic Learning family). We include community and family relationship-building in our curriculum planning to reflect this so all families regardless of ethnicity, culture, religion and tradition feel welcome. We host many planned events that support socialization, celebrations, and encourage participation. Developing and maintaining clear and positive family and community relations are highly important in order to have full learning opportunities. Kid Logic has many relationships with support services if needed. Specialists and resources are welcome during the day at our program all times to support best practice for all children’s needs.
What Matters To Us
Outside Play is Important
Outdoors is a natural learning environment, where appreciation for nature and a sense of wonder is discovered
What Parents Say
I wanted to share a few thoughts with you because my brain has really been swirling since yesterday. After our visit, I toured a second school. The indoor space was stunning, they’re doing great things, it checked all the philosophical boxes, but something was missing for me. I just didn’t get a good sense of the heart of the place. Then I reflected on my time with you. I was greeted by a lovely teacher, hands covered in dirt, because she was working on the gardens you’ve been creating for the children. She introduced me to you and we moved through your entire space together. As you strode through the school, I watched you pause to connect with teachers, parents, and students. I noticed small aspects of the physical space, like a book I remember fondly from childhood propped atop a bunny cage, a thoughtfully presented play pizza restaurant with a cardboard oven, and representation of children’s learning process on the walls. I saw your understanding of what young children need–to dig in the dirt, to push heavy things, to zoom on wheels, to stop for a big, long hug. I listened as you shared with me. I expected to hear what a typical day looks like, class sizes, what to bring, etc., but you graciously shared so much more. You shared your sense of purpose, your intention for your staff, your passion for knowing each child and fostering their individual strengths, your love and support for families. There is a buzz in the air at Kid Logic; there are many spaces, and many moving parts, but in the midst of it all there is a sense of unity. It is a community. Oh, and to top it off, you have CHICKENS. What a delightful surprise. All of this is to say that I got it. I got the heart of the place, and it is beautiful.
