About our Child Care & Preschool Center in Williamsburg
Welcome to our wonderful preschool in Williamsburg, VA. My name is Brandi Rutledge and I am the Director for school #180. I have over 20 years experience in the Early Childhood Education Field, have and hold certification for Montessori Preschool Practice. My passion is creating a warm home like environment that fosters quality education and meets the needs of our children, their families and our staff. We have a unique setting that is nestled on a large private, wooded lot; well off the road, but convenient to all of Williamsburg. With this in mind we capitalize our outdoor learning opportunities by offering an outdoor classroom, a dedicated gardening area, and hands down the best playgrounds to be found in the area. Children in each classroom enjoy growing plants, experimenting and discovering all while playing! We use our garden, outdoor classrooms and special projects to help children investigate, hypothesize and document their observations. We’ve found that children in each of the age groups really love getting hands on; it fosters their healthy development.
Our Kindergarten Prep Academy (Kindergarten readiness program) operates on a full day, full year schedule for children ages 4-5 years old. Our pre-k curriculum also provides a unique balance of standards-based on class room support materials.
For our school age children, we offer an after school program called the Young Achiever's Club. We provide pick up and drop off from schools, an afternoon snack, and homework help. Also, during the summer months, your child can be a part of our Adventure Summer Camp, when learning really gets fun! We take the campers on educational field trips to various locations such as museums, go karting, swimming, parks, martial arts lessons, and ice cream truck visits!
Throughout the year we prepare and provide breakfast, lunch and an afternoon snack to the children in our programs. Meals are approved by the USDA and keep the children energized and ready to learn while they are at school.
Give us a call or come by our preschool on John Tyler Highway for a tour! I know you’ll find that we provide excellent care, the best educators in the area and a well-balanced curriculum for learning at every age! I look forward to meeting you and your family soon!
