We are extremely fortunate to have a staff that is experienced and well-trained in Early Childhood Development…one that interacts well with children and can readily form trusting relationships with them.
Our teachers are facilitators who stimulate, encourage and guide, but never dominate. They develop age-appropriate curriculum in a positive, play-based environment, which enables the children to create, explore and build confidence and skills in a safe, secure setting.
Willow Wood has 12 teachers, 2 aides and a music consultant, all of whom have an impressive combination of early childhood experience and education. The majority of our teachers have master’s degrees in early childhood fields, and all have completed many additional hours of continuing education. Our overall staff retention is high, and our staff-to-student ratio exceeds the state licensing requirements.
