Preschool Parent Reviews
We sincerely appreciate all of the kind words from these Parent Reviews. We encourage you to read the Parent Reviews for Winwood Children’s Center below. We are also happy to connect you with one of our current parents via e-mail or phone so you can get their feedback on what we believe is the top preschool around
My wife Cathy and I both work more than full time jobs and we are very happy that we have the competent and compassionate people at Winwood looking after our two daughters Maggie and Molly. They spend more awake time at the Winwood than at home with us during the week, and we really appreciate that they come home happier and smarter than when we dropped them off. Often times, Maggie doesn’t want to come home at all. All of the teachers that we have had interactions with truly do care for the well being of our children and we are thankful to have found the facility. I would, and have, recommended Winwood to our friends and neighbors without hesitation.
For the past six months, Winwood has become my son and daughter’s home away from home. As a working mother, it’s never an easy decision to leave your children in the care of others. However, after much research and an exhaustive search for the best possible environment for our children, my husband and I chose Winwood-Reston. We were immediately attracted by the facility’s security/camera system, cleanliness and classroom structure for educational advancement. While those were significant factors during our search, it was the level of friendliness, high degree of competence and apparent love for children, that sold us on Winwood-Reston. From the Director to each individual teacher, I have always received a positive attitude and willingness to answer my questions with enthusiasm and helpfulness. More importantly, my children are clearly happy and feel safe. This is evidenced by their daily laughter, smiles and sense of security. My daughter lunging to hug her teacher, my son’s limitless account of his day at school, and their overall developmental improvements has solidified that my husband and I made the right decision. I am grateful to the Winwood-Reston teachers and management for their daily communication, love and support that they show to our family.
We have been a Winwood Reston family for over five years and could not love it more! Our son first enrolled in Winwood at Toddlers and went straight through until Kindergarten. His elementary school teachers have since inquired what preschool our son attended because they were so impressed about the curricular exposure he had gained during his Winwood years. Our son loved every second of his Winwood experience, and has since returned to Summer Camp.
Our daughter started at the Baby Room when she was only three months old, but leaving her in loving hands made the transition easy. Not only did we leave her with experienced, warm, and caring teachers, but she also got trained in bottle feeding (my husband had struggled for weeks trying to get her to take the bottle) and, later, got potty-trained at Winwood! In addition to the supportive and warm learning environment Winwood kids enjoy every day, the creative play centers, arts and crafts, music, fitness program, sign language and Spanish class, and optional enrichment and sports classes have given our kids the safe, loving, and respectful home away from home in which they can blossom, grow, and build friendships.
The focus on learning in a loving and encouraging environment our kids enjoy at Winwood is unparalleled to any other preschool or program which the children of our friends and family attend. The open door policy and total transparency and meaningful dialogue between the administration, teachers and parents is a remarkable cornerstone of Winwood Reston’s success. The teachers, center leadership, and support staff are always friendly, accessible, professional, and it is clear they love what they do. It truly is a Winwood Family!
