Willows Childcare Programs

Your Child’s development is one of our top priorities. We provide theme based learning centers that are developmentally appropriate, individualized, hands-on learning experiences. We base our curriculum on the WMELS (Wisconsin Model Early Learning Standards) and NAC accreditation criteria.

A Learning Center is a place where every child is actively involved in learning, where she/he learns in a natural and enjoyable way through his/her own experience. It is a place where a child works with concepts and ideas concretely, by handling familiar objects and manipulating them. A Learning Center is a place where children are free to make mistakes and to learn directly from these mistakes; where errors are used as clues for the teachers to enrich the curriculum to meet the individual child needs. A Learning Center is a place where a child needs to trust his/her own judgments and thoughts, where she/he is free to try things as an expression of creativity and individuality.

  • Fine & gross motor strength

Willows Christian Child Care Curriculum

Willows Christian Child Care Center is a 5-star National Accreditation Commission (NAC) accredited center. We are a play based, child led, pyramid model center.  Our education and experience have taught us that just as no two children are alike in the way they develop and grow; curriculum is not a “one size fits all” standard for every child.  In addition, we have found that it is crucial to not only place emphasis on cognitive and physical development, but social emotional development as well.  That is why when creating our curriculum, we have integrated the best of several resources to come up with what we feel covers each area of development and will give our children the best chance to not only survive but to thrive in their world.

Integrated Quality Standards

We have integrated Wisconsin Model Early Learning Standards (WMELS), The National Association for the Young Children (NAEYC) developmentally appropriate practices, and Wisconsin Pyramid Model social emotional framework.

WMELS specify developmental expectations for children birth through 1st grade.  The standards reflect the learning domains of a child’s learning and development.  The domains include health and physical development, social and emotional development, language development and communication, approaches to learning and cognitive and general knowledge milestones.  Each domain is divided into sub-domains which include developmental expectations, program standards, performance standards, and developmental continuum.

Individualize Learning Plans

NAEYC also shares consistent goals for children and promotes learning and development in each of the learning domains above.  Most importantly the children are recognized and supported in the context of family, culture, community, and society. 

            Positive, supportive, nurturing relationships sets the tone at Willows; therefore, we implemented the WI Pyramid Model framework in 2019.  This framework is evidence-based practices for promoting young children’s social emotional development.  The pyramid model consists of three tiers of intervention- universal practices for all children, targeted instruction for children who are at risk of social emotional delays, and individualized behavior support for children with significant social skills deficits or persistent challenging behavior.
