We provide 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.

Two-Year-Old Program

Two-Year-Old Curriculum

Two-year-olds learn from the world around them and their experiences. Socially, they are listening to others, becoming contributing members of a class community, and enhancing their own self-esteem through modeled behaviors. Academically, they are introduced to numbers, letters, colors, shapes, and vocabulary through thematic explorations. Students become critical thinkers by problem solving and exploring through their senses and hands-on activities. Both gross and fine motor skills increase as coordination and balance emerge. Bathroom independence is a goal for our two-year-old students as they work on cooperative play and sharing with their peers. Goal planning conferences take place in the fall, progress reports are completed twice a year, and spring conferences wrap up the academic year.

Our Teaching Philosophy

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.
