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.

Willow Wood News

As this new school year commences, I have found myself humming the tune I learned as a Girl Scout, “Make New Friends, But Keep the Old”. With the addition of 42 new families (a Willow Wood record) we have the opportunity to do just that! The excitement of Willow Wood’s summer activities has hopefully sparked new friendships for not only our new families, but for our returning ones, as well.

While much of our school year will look similar (Intake Conferences, Staggered Schedules, Kohl’s Halloween Party), we have many inaugural programming we are excited to kick off: New Parent Orientation (September 6), Poker Night (September 22) Curriculum Night (September 24), and Family Open House (January 27).
