Kind Child Program
Kind Child is a proprietary program that allows us to help our preschool students develop character and social skills. Our goal is to improve the emotional well-being of each child in our care and help our students build strong friendships.
Kind Child programming is included in our monthly curriculum and kindness is a fundamental part of our preschool’s culture. We focus on new social-emotional skills each month and a different character trait like a Positive Self-Image or Thankfulness every two months. We have found that when we focus on the social and emotional well-being of our students, we strengthen our school too!

I am super excited to join the team at Winwood Brambleton as your Assistant Director! I currently have my B.A. in Integrative Studies/Education from George Mason University and have over 15 years experience in early childhood education ranging from classroom teaching to management experience. My favorite thing about working with children is having the opportunity to watch them grow and develop. It’s inspiring to watch each child grow and know that I was fortunate enough to play a role in their learning and development through the years. I can honestly say that each day with children is a learning experience for me as much as it is for them!
I reside in Ashburn with my husband and three wonderful children who will also be attending Winwood Brambleton with me! Ava will be in the Junior Kindergarten program, Aubrey in the Preschool 2 program, and Austin in the Infant program! On the weekends, you can typically find me on the soccer field or gymnastics competitions with my oldest, but always enjoy relaxing with my family and starting new adventures!
Every child deserves access to high-quality early learning experiences. NAEYC (National Association for the Education of Young Children) has set 10 standards for early childhood programs that can help families make the right choice when they are looking for a child care center, preschool, or kindergarten. The standards and criteria are also the foundation of the NAEYC Accreditation system for early childhood programs. To earn NAEYC Accreditation, schools must go through an extensive self-study and quality-improvement process, followed by an on-site visit by NAEYC Assessors to verify and ensure that the program meets each of the ten program standards, and hundreds of corresponding individual criteria. NAEYC-accredited programs are always prepared for unannounced quality-assurance visits during their accreditation term, which lasts for five years. In the 30 years since NAEYC Accreditation was established, it has become a widely recognized sign of high-quality early childhood education. More than 7,000 programs are currently accredited by NAEYC—less than 10 percent of all child care centers, preschools, and kindergartens nationally achieve this recognition.
