Looking Back

It is so hard to believe that we are already through graduation. It has been so wonderful to watch our beautiful butterflies take flight and soar off to kindergarten. We are thrilled with the incredible maturity we have seen in these children over the past few years and especially in the recent months. They are a wonderful group of funny, artistic, charismatic children. It will be hard to let them go after all this time, but we are certain that they are ready for their next great adventure!

Looking Ahead

It is also that time of year when the older Caterpillars complete their transformation into Butterflies. As spaces begin to open up, we will begin moving some of the Caterpillars into the Butterfly classroom. The students are eager, industrious and ready to absorb as much as they can. We are looking forward to watching them emerge from their chrysalis' and begin stretching their wings. We are very proud of the great progress they have already made.

As we bid a bitter-sweet "farewell" to our graduating kindergartners, we will be welcoming several new families to our Willow Tree family. Be on the lookout for some new faces and please help us give them all a big, warm welcome!

We will be spending much time outside in our lovely garden and playground exploring, digging, sifting and playing. We also have a variety of onsite and offsite field trips planned this month. It's going to be as busy as ever!

Our Mother's Day Tea in the Garden was a Huge Success

Schedule Changes for Fall

We have very few remaining spaces available for Fall. If you'd like to increase the number of days or extend your child's schedule, please let us know as soon as possible. We would like to offer our current students priority for vacancies before filling spaces with incoming students.
