Welcome to the Willow Program
The Willow program is named for the willow tree found along river banks, and that is where we can be found - along the Wenatchee River. Come visit us in our half-day, drop in style class!
Monday - Thursday, 9:00a - 12:00p
Willow has low teacher-student ratios, flexible enrollment options and is located in the heart of Leavenworth. It has one preschool class for ages 3 - 5 who are potty trained, unless a disability prevents them from being so.
New: Family Explorers PRogram
Families drop in FREE when caregivers join any Willow class!
When you stay for class you give back to our class by becoming part of it! Our teachers will guide parents, grandparents or caregivers in the philosophy of our program so you can grow with your child, learn about nature immersion, build community and support the class.
No limits to the number of visits!

Each school year we celebrate the changing of seasons - from Autumn Equinox to Summer Solstice. Using the fall textures, snow and ice, and spring colors to inspire our own pieces of art. We examine the flora and fauna of the river, plant gardens, study the ever changing Earth around us and how we care for it. Each of us bringing our own unique attributes to class, we build friendships and a strong community of learners while also strengthening our body, mind and knowledge for Kindergarten and beyond.
