After School Curriculum

WDS provides an After School program for students in Kindergarten – Fifth Grade.

WDS provides an After School program for students in Kindergarten – Fifth Grade to attend after their school day is complete. WDS provides transportation from Tuckahoe Elementary School; County transportation is provided for students from Crestview Elementary School. Parents from other public and private schools are welcome to inquire about enrollment in the After School program for the summer.

Daily activities for our After Schoolers include snack, a supervised homework room, planned indoor activities, afternoon enrichments, and outside play.

In addition, the WDS After School program is open on many days that Henrico County Public Schools are closed (ex. Spring Break) and provides a full-day summer program.

Our After School Team


Jordan Witherspoon

After School Director

My name is Ms. Jordan and this is my 4th year in the education field and my 3rd year at WDS! I love how creative I can be with activities at WDS and I love my students and parents. I genuinely enjoy coming into work each day and love all the fun we have in After School! I am really looking forward to meeting the new faces in our After School program and learning about more countries with them in Culture Connection!

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.
