About

Welcome to Winwood Children’s Center our beautiful daycare center and preschool in Ashburn, VA. We are on the northeast corner of Claiborne Parkway and Hay Road, close to both Stone Bridge High School and Ashburn Library.
About The Director:
My name is Allison Grimmett, and I’m the director of the center. I currently have my Bachelor of Arts in Integrative Studies/Education from George Mason University and have over 15 years of experience in early childhood education ranging from classroom teaching to management experience. My favorite thing about working with children is having the opportunity to watch them grow and develop. It’s inspiring to watch each child grow and know that I was fortunate enough to play a role in their learning and development through the years. I can honestly say that each day with children is a learning experience for me as much as it is for them!
Curriculum:
We take a skills-based approach to early childhood education that balances academic, social, emotional, creative, and physical development. Our Ascend Curriculum provides every age group from Infant to Pre-Kindergarten a progressive series of activities, skills, and milestones across 9 diverse subject areas such as Baby Signs, Literacy, Cultural Understanding, Physical Fitness, and Kind Child so we can make the most of these first educational experiences. Our Kind Child Program is a proprietary program that allows us to help our preschool students develop character and social skills. Our goal is to improve the emotional well-being of each child in our care and help our students build strong friendships. Kind Child programming is included in our monthly curriculum and kindness is a fundamental part of our preschool’s culture. We focus on new social-emotional skills each month and a different character trait like a Positive Self-Image or Thankfulness every two months. We have found that when we focus on the social and emotional well-being of our students, we strengthen our school too!

Winwood, Ashburn is the best center I could’ve chosen for my child! His needs are accomodated almost fully and when they can’t accommodate they explain their reason for it (almost always a policy or licensing issue, as every business has). Their teachers TRULY care about every single one of these children and it shows in the care for them! This center ALWAYS has something exciting going on from movie night packs to take home with your kids, to... more

My daughter has been attending Winwood since she was a year old and from the moment she was enrolled she has excelled! The curriculum is appropriate and challenging, the staff has become a second family, and the overall communication from staff to families is excellent. My daughter often asks if it’s a school day on the weekends because she can’t get enough! I highly recommend Winwood to any family looking!

My daughter has been attending Winwood since she was 4 months old (she's now 3) and I couldn't imagine a better day care/preschool. My infant son is now attending as well. The teachers and staff feel like family, and truly care about my children's happiness, education, and well-being. I would highly recommend Winwood for any family!

My son was out all of last year due to COVID-19 and his daycare provider closed her business. We were very hesitant with putting him back into an environment with other people in the beginning, but we decided to take a chance with Winwood. When my husband and I met the staff there we instantly fell in love and decided to enroll. My son has been the happiest he's ever been since going there! He has made so many new friends and has excelled so... more

We LOVE Winwood Ashburn!! It is my children's home away from home! From the management team to the exceptional teachers at the school, we couldn't be happier with our decision to send our children to Winwood Ashburn.
