About Winwood Children’s Center
Winwood Children’s Center, Reston is proud to offer families in Herndon and Reston daycare services for infants and toddlers, proven preschool programs, and before & after school care and summer camp for school age children. We only provide before school care for students at Lake Anne Elementary School, but our after school program extends care to students at Aldrin Elementary School, Armstrong Elementary School, and Dogwood Elementary School.
Many of our staff have children of our own, and we know how difficult it is to choose a child care provider. We would love to show you around our preschool so you can see the quality of care we provide at Winwood for yourself!

Our Educational Philosophy
We believe a child’s first learning experiences will shape their attitude towards education for the rest of their life. Our Whole Child approach, Ascend Curriculum, and dedicated teachers work together to ensure that every child in our preschool center feels engaged, supported, and challenged. We customize our educational activities to the interests and current skill level of each student so that learning is fun and naturally interests the child.
The Whole Child approach to early childhood education recognizes that young children must develop much more than cognitive skills during their early years. They need to develop socially, emotionally, creatively, and physically too. Our Ascend Curriculum provides us a balanced framework for instruction and our teachers introduce new skills in the following subject areas each month: Literacy, Mathematics, Spanish/Baby Signs, Science & Sensory, Technology, Physical Fitness, Creative Expression, Kind Child, and Cultural Understanding.
Partnering with Parents
We have found that our preschool students thrive when there is a strong partnership between school and home. We offer a variety of communication pieces to keep parents informed about their child’s day and their progress towards developmental milestones. We also maintain an open door policy at our preschool and encourage the families of enrolled students to stop by anytime.
We are all about community at Winwood Children’s Center. We host events throughout the year such as our annual Halloween parade, holiday parties, the St. Jude Trike-A-Thon, Honoring Community Heroes, Science Fair, and more. These celebrations give parents the opportunity to get to know one another better and build stronger relationships between parents and staff.
