Mission Statement

Westhampton Day School provides a Christian environment that is nurturing, safe, mutually respectful, and conducive to learning. Our goal is to create a stimulating and hands-on learning experience for each individual child which promotes intellectual, physical, and social/emotional development.

About Us

For more than 70 years, WDS has been an active member of the Westhampton community. As a mission of Westhampton United Methodist Church, the school provides a full-day curriculum for 180 students and employs more than 40 dedicated educators.

WDS strives to create a nurturing environment that promotes curiosity, creativity, and a caring spirit among our young student population. WDS has a high retention rate among staff, with 94% degreed teachers and many teachers holding teaching licenses.

Our Teaching Philosophy

The WDS teaching philosophy is derived from Virginia’s Foundation Blocks for Early Learning.

These allow the educators at WDS to provide learning experiences. WDS is licensed by the State of Virginia and has been nationally accredited through the National Accreditation Commission for the Association for Early Learning Leaders since 2015. WDS was the past recipient of the Best Day Care & Preschool in Virginia Living Magazine and was included in Hanover Researches Best Practices in Pre-Kindergarten. Some of WDS’s Community Partnerships include the Faison School of Autism, Virginia College, Richmond Association for Directors of Early Childhood Education and Richmond Early Childhood Association.

After School Program

After School Program
