About Winwood Children’s Center, Reston, Virginia

Once voted the “7th Best Place to Live in America” by CNN Money, the Northern Virginia town of Reston has much to offer: cultural and historical activities in nearby Washington D.C., scenic beauty and recreation at Lake Fairfax Park, and a close-knit community founded on ideals that promise a high quality of life to all of its citizens.

Reston’s children first learn many of these principles when they begin their scholastic journey at Winwood Children’s Center, Reston.The children of Reston enjoy a truly unique and lovely community, and that same experience extends to the cozy preschool classrooms and cheery playgrounds of Winwood Children’s Center.

Each day, our preschool’s experienced, credentialed teachers work closely with students, engaging them with fun and developmentally stimulating activities, as well as ensuring that they meet the needs of each child in their care.

We have even figured out how to make sure infants and toddlers can communicate their needs before they have full command of language via Baby Signs, a program that utilizes American Sign Language (ASL) to help little ones avoid the frustration of not being able to tell caregivers when they are hot, cold, tired, or hungry.

Our Preschool Programs Offered:

  • Infant Daycare (ages 6 weeks to 1 year). Our daycare’s loving professionals work closely with you to develop an ideal schedule for your little one in our infant daycare program.
  • Toddler Childcare (ages 1 to 2). In our toddler childcare program, our caring teachers guide toddlers as they explore the world around them, learning skills like socialization, potty training, and more.
  • Early Learners (ages 2 to 3). At Winwood Children’s Center, Reston, our early childhood learners enjoy learning communication and language skills, as well as ways to lead a healthy lifestyle.
  • Preschool (ages 3 to 4). Our experienced early childhood educators offer stimulating educational activities in math, science, computers, language, and social studies in this program.
  • Pre-Kindergarten (ages 4 to 5). In our Pre-K program, children experience educational lessons and activities that prepare them for success in their elementary school years.
