Reston Preschool and Child Care

As parents ourselves, we understand that choosing the best educational child care for your child is one of the hardest decisions you have to make. By providing an environment for your child where they can grow and thrive, we are confident that Winwood Children’s Center in Reston, Virginia is the best preschool you can choose.

At Winwood Children’s Center we integrate the most important elements in any child care or preschool – giving your child a fun educational experience and care from an amazing team of teachers.  Combined, the value our preschool offers is unparalleled.  We extend our school’s value by including nutritious meals and enrichment classes such as Spanish, Sports, and Technology without additional fees.

 To give you a better idea about all that our school has to offer we are excited to introduce you to Stephanie Austin, our Preschool Director at Winwood Children’s Center in Reston, Virginia.

My name is Stephanie Austin and I am the director of the center.  I grew up right around the corner in Herndon and happily moved back after attending Shepherd College.  While at Shepherd I majored in Psychology with a minor in Early Childhood Development.  I have been working with children for over 18 years and have enjoyed 15 of them here at the Winwood in Reston.  I currently live in Herndon with my husband, son and 2 daughters, all of whom have attended our amazing center!

This center has over 30 dedicated teachers.  Our teachers have their CDA credential and/or their Associates or Bachelors degrees.  This loyalty helps to create the family atmosphere that we enjoy sharing with our families.  The staff member are committed to providing the children with the best possible start to learning.  Our children confidently enter Kindergarten already knowing the standards that are being taught!

Having 3 children of my own, I know how hard it is to leave your child in the care of people that you do not know.  That’s why I believe so strongly in our “Open Door Policy” as well as the many other various forms of communication we offer.  Our daily sheets, bi-monthly progress reports and developmental checklists, as well as the newsletters ensure that we are working together concerning every aspect of your child’s development.  We encourage attendance at monthly family events including our annual Halloween parade, holiday parties, the winter Book Fair and other parent celebrations which allows parents the opportunity to get to know one another better and to build a relationship with the children and teachers.

Welcome to Winwood Children’s Center of Reston!
