Mrs. Belinda Piercy, Principal of Woodlawn Learning Center
School Year 2013-2014
Welcome to Woodlawn Learning Center, we are very pleased to have you and your family here. At Woodlawn Learning Center we are committed to establishing a supportive learning environment for children, parents, and staff. The processes of enhancing awareness, refining skills, and increasing understanding are valued and promoted. Field trips and special activities are provided monthly to increase student's knowledge and awareness of the world beyond the walls of the classroom.
Patterns and expectations of success for the child are established to create a climate of confidence for present and future learning and development. Our preschool program is licensed by the Virginia Department of Social Services and accredited by the National Association for the Education of Young Children. Our core values include; embracing a comprehensive vision of health for children, families and staff which assures that basic health needs are met, encourages practices that prevent future illnesses and injuries and promotes positive, culturally relevant health behaviors that enhance life-long well being.
We understand and respect the importance of all aspects of an individual's development, including social, emotional, cognitive, and physical growth fostering relationships with the larger community. Our strategy is to build development and learning foundations that will help children succeed in school since such foundations are critical to school readiness and future educational achievement.
We believe that parents are a child's first teacher and the most important influence throughout life. Services must be future oriented, offering skills, knowledge, and intervention that can be expanded by the family and child after leaving Woodlawn.
