Will my child be outside all the time? Even in the snow?
At Windy Willows, we embrace the outdoors every day, whether it's amidst fog, snow, rain, or sunshine – each providing unique opportunities for exploration and discovery. Our flexible schedule empowers children to guide their outdoor learning experiences, deciding how long and how often we venture outside. This approach fosters adaptability and helps them uncover the wonders of their environment. While there are moments spent indoors, such as during arrival and rest time, we cherish the enriching outdoor experiences that contribute to their growth and development.
Does my child need to nap?
Every child at Windy Willows is required to have a rest time during the day, as mandated by Licensing. For those children who require a nap, we have a designated special room to ensure a peaceful rest environment. However, for those who do not nap, we provide a separate area with quiet activities to engage in during this time.
Do I need to pack a lunch?
Yes, we do require you to pack a lunch with two snacks and a drink for your child throughout the day. At Windy Willows, we prioritize promoting healthy choices, which may include options like sandwiches, fruits, vegetables, cheese, crackers, and more. However, we kindly request that candy and chips be reserved as special treats to be enjoyed at home.
Is there a lot of playroom for my child?
At Windy Willows Environmental Centre, we take immense pride in offering an abundance of play space and a wide variety of toys to stimulate children's imaginations and creativity. Our carefully designed indoor areas are filled with engaging activities and learning materials, ensuring a dynamic and enjoyable experience for every child. Additionally, our spacious outdoor playground provides a safe and exciting environment for kids to explore, run, and engage in outdoor play, fostering a strong connection with nature and promoting physical activity.
