About Westhampton at Willow Lawn (WWL)

The Westhampton Day School program has been overflowing with interest, especially for our Three’s & Pre-Kindergarten programs and we decided to expand to a satellite location in fall 2018. Our satellite location is housed in Faison’s Early Education Center.

These classes follow Westhampton Day School’s teaching philosophy which is derived from Virginia’s Foundation Blocks for Early Learning.
