Mission Statement

Wind ‘N Willow is committed to setting a strong foundation as we prepare the children for academic, social and emotional success. Our goals can be met by inspiring, guiding and teaching our students in a positive and safe learning environment. Our objective is to provide a caring and cooperative school environment that encourages positive relationships and respect for one another, a place where the voice of a child is valued. We will provide an environment that allows children to learn by doing. The children will move from concrete, hands on experiences to a more abstract concept development. We will provide child-directed and teacher guided activities. The children will work individually and in small and large groups. Group work will encourage teamwork and service to others. Our priority is to take advantage of teachable moments that happen every day by fostering the intellectual, creative, social and physical development of our students.

Wind ‘N Willow inspires each child to reach their highest academic potential and promotes a lifelong commitment to learning.

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 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. Parents can only be admitted into the building by office personnel. The State mandates A staff/child ratio of 1:5 is maintained in the 2-year old class; 1:7 in the 3-year old class; and 1:8 in the 4-year old class.

At Wind N Willow we have 3 teachers in our 2-year-old class of 12 children, 3 teachers in our 3-year-old class of 12-18 and 3 teachers in our 4-year-old classroom in a class of 14-18 children.
