As we transform the old Burlington Town Center site into the new CityPlace Burlington site and add new homes, new offices, new retail, more parking and better street connectivity, we are changing downtown, and one change we are happy to report is that Heartworks will be opening a world-class early childhood education and preschool program at CityPlace Burlington.
We are entering into a collaboration with Heartworks, an outstanding group of preschools in Chittenden County which was founded in 1988 and has become an important part of the early childhood education and preschool community. Families have long entrusted Heartworks to provide their children with a premier early childhood and preschool educational experience and offers programs for children from 6 weeks through 5 years of age. The CityPlace Burlington Heartworks program will allow them to meaningfully expand their capacity to serve infants from 6 weeks old through preschool aged children in Burlington. The Heartworks staff and faculty have a long tradition of educating children in a way that enriches their mind and nourishes their soul. We are delighted to partner with Heartworks and bring their wonderful preschool program to CityPlace Burlington.
Adding Heartworks to our project is in keeping with the philosophy of CityPlace Burlington—to enrich the lives of Burlingtonians with a project that will provide much needed housing, new jobs, better retail and restaurants, more conveniences and better community services, and including now a premier early childhood education and preschool program. We are delivering on our promise to put together an overall development program that will best serve our community in so many wonderful ways.
The Heartworks early childhood education and preschool program at CityPlace Burlington will be a state-of-the-art facility, including well-equipped classrooms, indoor performance and multi-use spaces, as well as an outdoor play area, which will complement the other uses at CityPlace Burlington. Already one of our office tenants has requested to reserve places for its employees’ children at Heartworks. The synergies of complementary uses are exciting, and the convenience of Heartworks preschool located on premise is truly amazing. Imagine, the peace of mind for parents to know their children are just a few floors away from their office. How convenient will it be for parents to leave their child in the morning with the dedicated Heartworks staff, and then ride the elevator to their office, or go shopping at our shops. Parents can enjoy lunch with their child, check in on them during the day or be readily available if their child isn’t feeling well one day. These are the kinds of services and conveniences at CityPlace Burlington that make a difference in your life—a wonderful, accredited and top-notch preschool for your child, located where you work, live or shop.
Heartworks will offer an outstanding early childhood education and preschool program and it will be available to our residents, tenants and all of downtown Burlington.

CityPlace Burlington is proud to have Heartworks join us and offer their highly acclaimed early childhood education and preschool program as part of our project.
