Willow Room (Potty trained 3s and 4s)

The Willow Room is our full-day preschool programming for 3s and 4s.  We have developed the curriculum ourselves over the past several years by researching and exploring multiple educational philosophies and curriculum. Then taking what we love about them and applying them to our program.

For all our programs we apply emergent curriculum.  As a play-based program using an emergent curriculum, our teachers spend time watching and in conversation with the children while they are playing.  This is where our teachers take their inspiration from to plan the curriculum and to inspire the natural curiosity that kids have.

Our classrooms are designed to provide opportunities for free play involving construction, language development, dramatic play, art, music, science and the natural world and a space for quiet play and reading.  We strive to provide a family home setting across all of our programs which to us means that we have a warm and nurturing environment that flows from the staff we hire to the intentionally designed homey environment.
