About Winding Willow School

This is our 8th year in business, although we have been on break since March 2020 due to the pandemic.   With the new vaccine being made available, we are glad to be able to announce our re-opening.  All cultures, genders, sexual orientations, and religions are welcome. Our menu is gluten free, mostly organic, contains no nuts, and we can accommodate most dietary restrictions.

About Our Program

Before the pandemic, we spent half the day outdoors either in our yard, at our sister school garden across the street,  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 have two bunnies, and the children help feed them and get to pet them.  We also have 2 cats who sometimes make an appearance and play with the bunnies.  We do seasonal festivals including a Lantern Walk and Maypole, Winter Spiral and a Spring play.  If the pandemic gets under control, parents will be invited to attend the festivals, otherwise we may restrict it to just children and staff although video will be available.  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.
