We offer a safe & stimulating preschool environment where young children and their families experience peace of mind. We recognize that it isn’t easy for parents to leave their children in the care of others, so we make concerted efforts to keep you connected with your children while you are away. We have MyToddlerLink cameras set up in our classrooms so you can check in on your child from your home or office and an app called KidReports, where our daycare providers and preschool teachers send you pictures and updates throughout the day.
Winwood Children’s Center, Lansdowne is at the corner of Riverside Parkway and Upper Meadow Drive. We are less than a mile north of VA-7, which makes an ideal choice for parents who commute to Leesburg, Potomac Falls, and Ashburn.
The Ascend Curriculum takes a skill-based approach to early education and balances the development of cognitive, physical, social, emotional, and creative skill through nine learning components: Baby Signs, Literacy, Science & Sensory, Mathematics, Technology, Creative Expression, Cultural Understanding, Physical Fitness, and Kind Child.
Our Kind Child program is part of our monthly Ascend Curriculum and the backbone of our preschool’s culture. The goal of Kind Child is to elevate every child’s feelings of happiness, improve their emotional well-being, and enrich their friendships. We develop social-emotional skills each month and focus on valuable character traits like Empathy, a Positive Self-Image, and Thankfulness every two months. The result is a preschool environment where students feel welcome, supported, and valued!
A warm, homelike environment is one of the features that separates our school from your typical daycare center. Vibrant colors, overstimulating designs, and clutter can be overwhelming to young children and lead to behavioral problems. We have found that children transition more successfully from home to school when the school environment is conducive to their home environment, so we use more natural tones and include elements such as pillows, fabrics, soft seating areas, soft lighting, and accents from home.
