wind in the willows

Wind in the Willows classroom is located at the west end of the new addition to The Dahlhouse, Building #1 on the KELC campus.  Children welcomed into Wind in the Willows are at least three years old and enjoy the attention of teachers who hold university degrees in early childhood education.  This beautiful, bright, spacious classroom overlooks the gardens and pastures, having a calming effect on nature lovers of all ages.  The inviting book nook beckons young "readers" to share favorite books with a friend or a teacher.
Three-year-olds are building a knowledge base from which to interpret their world.  They have an innate drive to explore their environment, and to find answers to their many questions.  Wind in the Willows teachers excel at guiding young learners' exploration and self-expression. Spanish,  Science/Nature, Gardening, PE and Musikgarten classes enrich the classroom experiences.

THE GIVING TREE

Preschoolers who will turn four during the school year call The Giving Tree (GT) their homeroom.  This classroom was formerly the kitchen-dining area of Will and Sandra Dahl's home.  Large banks of windows on the east side of this beautiful classroom allow children to enjoy a view of the gardens, play areas and nature center. 
Teachers plan goal based lessons to promote children's growth in literacy, math, science, social/emotional, fine arts and more.  Theme based activities help children learn to communicate, cooperate, empathize and gain confidence in their abilities. Special classes in Spanish, PE, Nature Study/Science and Music opportunities round out the regular classroom teacher's lesson plans.

THE BIG RED BARN

Our  Big Red Barn served as a home for animals for 150 years before it received a facelift in 2001 and was restored to provide a bright, cheerful, learning space for children.  Old grayed beams that once supported the roof above horses, cows, kittens, chickens, and hay bales have been sandblasted to the honey color they sported  over a century ago, when the barn was built to last.  Wooden nails and hand-hewn cuts in the beams were retained as  a central part of the Barn's substantial and long-standing character.
