At Country Woodland School children are placed in classes with other children close to their age. Daily they interact with each other by playing with toys, reading books, working on arts and crafts, and playing on our large, secluded playground. They learn social skills that will help them throughout their lives.
The children work on different units in their classrooms that teaches them the letters, numbers, shapes, and colors by doing crafts, working on worksheets, reading stories, and singing songs.
If the weather permits, the children go outside and enjoy our large, private, wooded playground each day. To add to what the children do in the classrooms each day, we use the Mother Goose curriculum.
Each week all preschool students have gym and music classes once a week. Each of these special classes are with a teacher other than their regular classroom teachers.
Teachers and Staff
A school is only as good as its teachers and we are proud of ours. Our school is staffed with well-qualified, experienced, caring people who enjoy working with children. Our teachers and aides have considerably more training than is required by the State of Virginia. Some are college graduates, while others are currently enrolled in college curriculum. Before hiring, the background and references of each applicant are carefully checked. Every employee of the school must have a criminal record check by the State of Virginia.
The children are placed in the classes based on their age. All of our teachers are highly trained professionals who truly love what they do.
