About Winwood South Riding

Looking for a preschool or daycare center your family can call home? Winwood Children’s Center, South Riding offers a warm, homelike environment where young children thrive. A child’s first years of development are precious and we take a Whole Child approach to early childhood education so our preschool students can develop cognitive, social, creative, and physical skills that will serve them into elementary school and beyond.

Our Preschool’s Programs

Educational Philosophy

Children have an endless capacity to learn! We believe the best way to develop the abilities of young children is to give them some control over their own learning process. Our teachers provide our students endless opportunities to explore, discover, and initiate their own learning through a wide variety of experimental and playful educational activities.

Flexibility and individualization are built into our Ascend Curriculum. Our teachers introduce progressive sets of skills across nine subject areas such as Baby Signs, Literacy, Mathematics, Cultural Understanding, and Technology each month, but the activities themselves can be customized to fit the interests and current skill level of each child. We want your child’s first educational experiences to be fun, engaging, and challenging so they develop a love of learning!

Kind Child

Kindness is the foundation of our school’s culture and Kind Child is one of the nine learning domains we emphasize in our Ascend Curriculum. We focus on developing social-emotional skills in our classrooms every month and a new character trait like a Positive Self-Image, Empathy, and Friendship every two months. The goal of our Kind Child program is to enrich friendships and to continually elevate every child’s emotional well-being, which creates a Kind School we all enjoy!

Safety & Security

Keeping children safe and security is the top responsibility of any preschool or daycare facility. Winwood South Riding maintains child-teacher ratios that are lower than state standards so our teachers are better able to respond to the needs of their students. We have a secure entry system throughout our center so we can effectively screen families and visitors.

Our school has MyToddlerLink, which is a web camera system that allows parents to check on their child throughout the day from the convenience of their home or office. We also provide our parents an app called KidReports, which keeps them updated on their child’s progress throughout the day and includes photos.
