About Winwood Children’s Center
Winwood Children’s Center, Lansdowne offers 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.
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.

The Ascend Curriculum & Kind Child
Winwood Children’s Center is proud to be a member of the Cadence Education Family of Schools. One of the biggest benefits of being aligned with an organization like Cadence is that we get access to exclusive educational programming that you won’t find anywhere else. Two of those programs are the Ascend Curriculum and Kind Child.
The Ascend Curriculum takes a “Whole Child” approach to early childhood education, which is built around the philosophy that young children need much more than cognitive development during these first few years of school. The Ascend Curriculum also embraces the development of 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.
Kind Child is both a 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.
Winwood Children’s Center, Lansdowne is at the corner of Riverside Parkway and Upper Meadow Drive and our address is 18792 Upper Meadow Drive in Lansdowne, Virginia, 20176.
