Philosophy

Willow House is a family cooperative and operates right here in Mansfield Depot, CT also known as Storrs, CT. 

 

Since Willow House opened in 1987, we’ve maintained a family-first philosophy by focusing on the specific needs of children and families in our community. We are unique in our extended hours of operation, teacher-to-child ratios, and classroom sizes all for families who work, attend school, and who want their child to have a jump start on social skills and academics.   

 

As a family cooperative, we are able to create opportunities for each family to affect the living and learning environment at Willow House through their involvement in the center. The benefits of this model are financial savings that return back to the family and we create an atmosphere that feels like home to the children who join us. 

With over 30 years of experience in early childhood education, hundreds of families have entrusted us with caring for and educating their child. 

 

 Each child’s safety and security is as important as academics and activities.

 

  Convenient to home, work, and/or local universities such as UCONN and Eastern. 

 

 We are a small, family friendly center providing an environment for children with positive routines and a familiar caregiver.

We look forward to hearing from you soon!

Health & Safety

Sick Policy 

Children do get sick on occasion and we understand how difficult it can be for both family and child.  Please keep your child home if he/she is experiencing a fever, vomiting, diarrhea, and rash or is just not up to a day full of activities.  We do not administer over the counter medications and encourage your child’s physician to adjust the dosage of any antibiotics that may be used.
 

COVID-19

The virus is thought to spread mainly from person-to-person. 

  • Between people who are in close contact with one another (within about 6 feet).

  • Through respiratory droplets produced when an infected person coughs, sneezes or talks.

  • These droplets can land in the mouths or noses of people who are nearby or possibly be inhaled into the lungs.

  • Some recent studies have suggested that COVID-19 may be spread by people who are not showing symptoms.

 

Knowing these facts, WH has implemented many new safety measures for families, children and teachers to follow so that we are an important part of reducing the spread and keeping everyone as healthy as possible.
