Our founder, Emily Vonder Schmalz, believes that every child should be given the opportunity to learn a second language during their tender years.  Built on strong family values and a desire to provide children a head start with learning a second language, VAMONOS was born.

From our humble beginnings at our first center in Warwick, to the multi center provider we are today, we are proud to have become an established and respected childcare facility serving our surrounding communities.

Owners Emily & Kurt Vonder Schmalz, and their four children!


They truly love what they do!  Our teachers are warm, nurturing professionals committed to making a difference in a child’s tender years. Our teachers strive to expand a child’s creativity by finding new ways to encourage children to participate, explore, and learn. 

Head teachers have a degree in early childhood education or a related field, and assistant staff has a combination of formal education and experience.  All of our staff continuously participate in trainings and coaching sessions in various areas of early childhood education and are required to pass various background checks including credit, FBI, criminal, child abuse, physical exams, and more. We emphasize the importance of their commitment to VAMONOS and how this affects the development of our children. 


Our classrooms are big, bright and inviting, with plenty of room to explore, relax, and create. Teachers, parents, and children feel at home, always welcomed with hugs and smiles.  Classrooms are arranged with various centers filled with age appropriate toys, puzzles, manipulatives, games, and more.

Tablets are provided in the classrooms where kids can use various applications and games to expand learning through technology, computers and multimedia experiences.


Our team is what drives us every day. Our teachers and staff blend the highest standards in early childhood education and development with nurturing care. If you want to make a difference in the lives of young children, contact us about opportunities today!

“This was the best decision we made for our son. We love the school and more importantly he loves attending. Vamonos’s curriculum is outstanding and the kids have fun while learning. Plus, they have a schedule that works for working parents. Highly recommend.”
