Enrollment

Wind in the Willows offers a morning Preschool program as well as a Transitional Kindergarten. Wind in the willows is open from 8:30am until 2:30pm. Preschoolers may attend 3, 4 or 5 days a week, while our TK is 5 days a week. All programs are intentionally kept small to allow the teachers to get to know each child well, and to provide a social environment that isn't overwhelming. Our teacher to child ratio is 1:6. A limited amount of tuition assistance is available.

Our group is composed of children aged 2.9 to 5 years old.
