Our History

    Willow Blossom Learning Center (formerly known as Hampshire-Franklin Children's Daycare Center) is an outgrowth of the Hampshire Children's Cooperative which was housed at Hampshire College in the early '70s and moved to the Friends Meetinghouse in Leverett in 1974. The Children's Cooperative incorporated as the Hampshire-Franklin Children's Day Care Center in 1976. Since July of 1987, the Center has occupied a 2,200 square foot building set on 2 acres along Route 63 in Leverett. Originally conceived as a parent collective, Willow Blossom is now run by a parent-staff Board of Directors.




We are dedicated to working with children in the spirit of partnership and creative participation to give children consistent, reliable support.
