Tree House


The Tree House logo

Tree House is a before care and afterschool program offered to PreK-5 families & their students who attend a Windsor Public School. Tree House is a district-wide positive youth development program for students and families who attend a Windsor Public School. Tree House serves students from PreK- Grade 5 at Oliver Ellsworth, Poquonock, John F. Kennedy and Clover Street Schools for before school-AM (7:00 AM - 9:00 AM) and after school programming (3:00 PM – 6:00 PM).


As of 8/20/20,  we will be running on the Tier 2: hybrid model affording AM and PM options for families of students in groups M/T and TH/F only. There will be no care on Wednesdays for distance learning days. We will advise of changes if and when they become available. We will not be able to provide drop-in opportunities. Holidays i.e. Columbus Day, Election Day, etc will only be open to families on their grouping day. Therefore if your grouping day lands on a Monday and there is no school you should sign up for Wednesday of that week.

When we are ready to come back to school at a Tier 1 capacity, we will have a 5-day option and a pick-your-day option (pick more than two days).  Non-school days and vacation program schedules will be open to families who are enrolled in the 5-day option or pick-your-day option (Tier 1) . We will not be able to provide drop-in opportunities. 


Our mission is to provide a high-quality extending learning opportunity in a safe and supervised environment for our Windsor students, Pre-K through 5.


Our vision for Tree House programs is to promote disguised learning supporting our four core strategies.


Our core strategies are in alignment with Windsor Public Schools’ Core Beliefs: Collaboration, Equity, Family and Community Partnerships, and Growth Mindset. The Tree House core strategies consist of:

  • Social-Emotional-Learning
  • Homework Help 
  • Academic Enrichment(s); and 
  • Health and Wellness
