About Winwood Children’s Center

Winwood Children’s Center has two locations in Brambleton, Virginia. Our preschool is just down the street from Creighton’s Corner Elementary School at 42780 Creighton Rd in south Brambleton. Our sister Brambleton II location is 2 miles to the north at 42635 Redeemer Terrace.

Both of our Brambleton locations provide young children a warm, inviting place to develop into intelligent, creative, and kind adolescents. We utilize a skill-based approach to early childhood education, which actively encourages the progressive development of cognitive, physical, social-emotional, and creative skill. Our dedicated teachers, Ascend Curriculum, and Kind Child program work together to create a welcoming preschool environment where kids thrive!

Kind Child

Kind Child Program LogoKindness is the foundation of our preschool’s culture and Kind Child is one of the nine subjects within our Ascend Curriculum. Our teachers work on socio-emotional skills every month and focus on a specific character trait like Empathy, Conflict Resolution, Thankfulness, and Responsibility every two months. Kind Child strengthens our school’s culture by enriching friendships and attending to the emotional well-being of each child in our care.

Kindergarten Readiness

Ascend Curriculum LogoProviding your child an exceptional preschool education that effectively prepares them for success in elementary school is part of our promise to you. The flexible framework built into our Ascend Curriculum allows our teachers to create powerful educational experiences for every student. Teachers progressively introduce skills across nine different subject areas such as Literacy, Science & Sensory, and Technology every month, but choose themes and activities based on the interests and learning styles of the students in their classroom.

What Makes Our Preschool Unique

At Winwood Brambleton, children rotate through different specialized classrooms, which allows them to spend time with teachers who are specialists in Creative Art, Math & Science, Physical Education, Music, and Language Arts. Our preschool students also get to participate in several enrichment programs such as Growing Up Wild, Hands-On Science, and Spanish as part of their regular tuition. Our Math & Science room features a Smart Board, which allows us to incorporate technology and educational games into our curriculum.

I currently have my AA degree in Early Childhood Education and have over 25 years of experience in early childhood education. I also have 10 years’ experience in management.

Working with children has always been a passion for me. I love to watch them learn and grow and being a part of that. It excites me to see all of the new little things they do each day. I also love working with the parents and appreciate the trust they instill in me each day to care for their little ones. It is a pleasure each day for me to get up and go to work.

I live in Manassas, VA, where I was born and raised. I have loved coming back to the area so that I’m able to be closer to my family, especially my niece and nephews. In my free time I love to read, spend time with family and friends, and be outdoors fishing, where I can be around the water or taking a nice long walk.

Here to share… my start was with my first engagement with the Director Ms. Lori was awesome we shared our professional and personal views as educators, and the Finish line in the future is there but I’m enjoying every moment with my interactions with everyone in bypassing from parents to the children and co teachers.

My husband and I brought our children to Winwood as we were in need of child care, and the director Lori and all of the staff that have worked with our children are amazing. Lori immediately helped us get settled, and she has continued to help us with any issues or questions we have had - every day - for almost a year now. We would recommend this day care to anyone. We know our children are taken care of and are treated with kindness.

We love WinWood Childrens center at Brambleton and all the teachers and staff. Special kudos to Lori and how she is able to run this place so well with lots of fun activities for kids. My daughter loves all her teachers - Ms. Sonya, Ms. Deepti, Ms. Anita. Special mention to Ms. Deepti as she is a Rockstar ! My 3 year old daughter knows all alphabets and numbers and knows how to write them pretty well at this age because of Ms. Deepti.
