Greenwood School has been serving the community in its present space since 1987. The school currently has about 135 students in 9 classes for infants through kindergarten. It serves approximately 125 families from around the DC metro area. Through collaboration with the non-profit Friends of Greenwood, Board of Directors, we offer tuition assistance to families as well as education benefits for the School’s hard working and dedicated teachers.
The school began its operation in 1966 under the name of Folwell Nursery School and Kindergarten. It was housed in shared space with the University Christian Church next to Northwestern High School. The school name was changed in 1985 to Greenwood School and in 1987 moved to the present location. In 1992 Greenwood School became a GSA National Capital Region Child Care Center (http://www.gsa.gov/portal/content/101942) given that many Greenwood families work in federal agencies in the University Town Center complex as well as the Maryland/DC metropolitan area. Greenwood School is NAEYC accredited through August 2018.

Who you serve:
At Greenwood we have a deep commitment to a quality preschool education and day care. We feel an outstanding preschool should provide a warm, loving atmosphere where a child can grow intellectually, socially, physically and emotionally. Each class is taught in a positive and non-threatening manner which allows for stimulation and growth. We feel children should be treated with respect so they will value the feelings and ideas of others.
The school opens at 7:30 a.m. and closes at 6:00 p.m. Instructional time is from 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m.
