About Winding Willow School

Winding Willow School first opened eleven years ago. We are a harmonious mix of teachers and assistant teachers, happy to guide the children using positive discipline and gentle modeling. We are grateful to spend this time with the children, in the great outdoors, and with each other. All cultures, genders, sexual orientations, and religions are welcome.


About Our Program

We spend at least half the day outdoors either in our yard, at our sister school next door, or at lower Paramount Open Space, which features meadows and woods. We have story time and song circle in English and Spanish daily. We do painting and crafts, gardening, and free play. We use songs as part of the daily routine to help with transitions. Once a week, the children make fresh tortillas, and we incorporate them into snack time. Our menu is gluten free, mostly organic, contains no nuts, and we can accommodate most dietary restrictions. We provide snack and lunch.

We have a little gray bunny named Bun Bun and the children love to help feed her.
