Our Philosophy

Here at Wind ‘N Willow we believe that young children are learning all the time and it is our responsibility as educators to guide them in the learning process. Research has shown that children are born ready to learn. They cultivate 85 percent of their intellect, personality and skills by the age of five. The first five years of their life are extremely important because it will set the stage for lifelong development. We recognize the extroadinary growth that takes place during this time. 

 Here at Wind ‘N Willow we nurture each child into reaching his or her full potential because we believe that learning takes place when children can question, explore, be creative, make choices for themselves and share ideas. Our curriculum respects both the age and the individual needs of each child.  Wind ‘N Willow provides a safe, nurturing and healthy learning environment that will advance your child’s physical and intellectual competence, communication and creativity.   Here at Wind ‘N Willow we aim to touch the heart and mind of every child.

Our Staff

Our experienced and highly qualified teachers are enthusiastic, nurturing professionals who are committed to meeting the emotional and educational needs of young children.
Our low child-to-teacher ratios enable our teachers:

  • spend quality teaching time with each individual child and work with children in small groups
  • develop close child-teacher relationships of affection, trust and respect;
  • assess each child’s social, emotional, cognitive, and physical growth 

Our goal is to instill a love of learning in all of our children through positive and enriching experiences and activities. 

Safety 

Safety is a priority at Wind ‘n Willow. Personal references are checked and fingerprinting is completed for each member of the staff. All doors are locked and alarmed at all times.
