BRATTLEBORO, Vt. (AP) - An early education nonprofit has moved into the former location of a historic school for the deaf and hard of hearing in Vermont.

The Winston Prouty Center for Child Development purchased the Brattleboro campus of the Austine School for the Deaf and Hard of Hearing after it declared bankruptcy and closed two years ago.

Vermont Public Radio (https://bit.ly/2acibk1 ) reports that the nonprofit moved into the 177-acre campus earlier this month.

The center is only using part of the space that includes two dormitories and more than 100 acres of forest. Other tenants occupy the building.

Winston Prouty serves kids up to 5 years old in early learning programs. The move has allowed the school to add two new classrooms, including a new infant care program.
