Play

Willow Wood provides a warm, nurturing environment that promotes social, physical and intellectual development.  We achieve this through a play-based curriculum that helps children develop imagination, ingenuity and confidence.

Grow

Parents, teachers and students grow and learn together at Willow Wood.  As a parent-run school, there are many ways to take part in the Willow Wood community.  From social events to classroom visits, we want you to enjoy your time with us.


From the logo to the website to the tour, I knew Willow Wood was something special. Such a warm, caring environment where the teachers truly have a passion for what they do. My kids and I have made lifelong friends here and we feel so lucky to be a part of such a welcoming community.
— Laura, Willow Wood Parent

Josh is the Executive Director of Campaign for a Commercial Free Childhood.
