About Winwood Children’s Center
Colorfully decorated classrooms and warm, caring teachers at Winwood Children’s Center, Ashburn, welcome children every morning. Throughout the school day, students learn about nature and science in our signature “Growing Up Wild” and “Lego Engineering” programs; distant lands and languages in our Spanish program; and, melodies and dance in our music program.
Our early childhood education center’s lush lawns and bright, colorful playgrounds beckon to children at break time, allowing them to stretch their growing bodies, explore their vivid imaginations, and socialize with friends.
NAYEC Accreditation: We Go Above and Beyond
Accreditation is a mark of excellence that is awarded by an independent, third-party organization (NAEYC) when a preschool center proves that it continuously maintains high standards of quality in early childhood education and care. For families, that mark of excellence has real meaning. A preschool center goes through a rigorous evaluation process to ensure it meets standards of excellence that go above and beyond the state’s minimum licensing requirements to earn accreditation.
What does this mean? Accreditation means that an early childhood education center is meeting high national standards in teaching strategies, curriculum, assessment of children’s learning, health and safety, developing relationships with families, community involvement, administration, and teacher qualifications. To maintain our accredited status, we must continually demonstrate these standards in early childhood education and care.
The bottom line: accreditation fosters a culture of reflection and continuous improvement.Less than 10 percent of all child care centers, preschools, and kindergartens nationally achieve this recognition.So we are very proud of our program and most of all, of our teachers!
Winwood Children’s Center, Ashburn operates under the philosophy that we treat children with warmth and respect. We make it a priority to surround the children at our preschool and childcare center with experiences that foster physical, social, academic, emotional, and cognitive growth.
Our Preschool & Childcare Programs
Because we understand that infants and toddlers can become frustrated when they are not yet able to verbally articulate all of their needs and emotions, we teach them American Sign Language (ASL) in our Baby Signs program.
We offer the following programs:
- Infant Daycare (ages 6 weeks to 1 year). In this infant daycare program, we work closely with parents to develop a smooth and optimal schedule for little ones for peace of mind all around.
- Toddler Daycare (ages 1 to 2). This theme-based toddler daycare program teaches everything from socialization to potty training as your toddler explores the world.
- Early Learners (ages 2 to 3). We introduce kids to behaviors and activities that develop their communication and language skills, encourage a lifelong love of reading, and help them develop a healthy lifestyle in this early childhood education program.

What Makes Our Preschool Learning Center Unique
The educational background and experience of our teachers, as well as the size of the classrooms, are essential to the quality of our preschool programs.
Acquiring competent, productive, and forward-looking teachers is key to ensuring our children are receiving the best early education possible. To that end, we provide extensive training, as well as growth incentives to help our teachers and staff discover and reach their true potential, as well as that of their students. Plus, the small student-to-teacher ratios in our classrooms allow us to build a close rapport with the children and their families.
Our dedication to our students’ scholastic success does not stop when the school bell rings. Because studies show that many children spend countless hours a day watching TV and playing video games, as well as much time alone while parents are at work, we offer a warm, enriching, and fun place for Winwood and local elementary school students to come before and after school.
During these morning and afternoon hours, we encourage extended academic learning to help improve grades. We are also proud to keep children safe, which benefits working families and has a positive effect on the entire community. We encourage not only their academic development but also their participation in team sports by sponsoring numerous local youth teams.
