I had the pleasure of being hired at Winwood Fairfax 15 years ago and I am so thankful for the experience that I had and continue to have because of Winwood Fairfax. The director Katy is still always available whenever I need, and I am grateful that we are still co-workers after 15 years. Some of teachers I taught with over a decade ago, are still there! If you are looking for a wonderful preschool with long term and caring staff, you have found a home away from home at Winwood.

My oldest has been attending Winwood since he was 3 and my youngest has been attending since he was an infant. The staff at Winwood are so awesome and you can really feel how much they care for each child. I really don't know what I would've done without them throughout this entire time my oldest has been doing distance learning. I'm very grateful for them and all that the staff do at Winwood.

Winwood Fairfax has been amazing for our two boys. Our oldest has been attending since he was 18 months, now 4.5 years old. The teachers are fantastic! The entire staff creates such a warm and safe environment. We couldn't imagine a better place to send our boys! The building is kept secure and extremely clean. The overall curriculum is top notch as well.
