Willow Woods CDC provides quality childhood care and education for children ages 6 weeks through pre-kindergarten. Our curriculum includes sharing and conversation time, stories, music and movement, creative art activities, games, large muscle activities, field trips within the community, food preparation, science and nature activities, exposure to shapes, colors, numbers and letters, as well as the celebration of birthdays and holidays.

 

The Infant Program (ages 6 weeks to approximately 12 months) is a multi-sensory program designed for the primary care and development of age appropriate skills and milestones of a child’s first year.

 

The Toddler Program (ages 12 months to 24 months) utilizes directional teaching in all areas of development, including language and vocabulary. Children are also involved in self-help skill development, such as self-feeding, social development, and awareness and discovery of the world around them.

 

The Preschool Program (begins at age 2 and continues through graduation from our Pre-Kindergarten class) This program focuses primarily on math and reading readiness, fine and gross motor skill development, music, arts and crafts, science, and physical education. The development of self-help skills and social awareness continues throughout a child’s journey at Willow Woods.
