Welcome to GFCC

Greenwood Forest Children's Center is a half-day private preschool program operating from September through May. We offer classes for children ages 1-5. We are proud to operate on the campus of Greenwood Forest Baptist Church and maintain the same values of inclusivity and outreach that are held dear throughout the campus.  One distinct difference GFCC maintains from other church-based programs is our decision to offer a non-religious preschool program.  GFCC believes in welcoming and celebrating families of all faiths and none.

Our mission is to provide a safe, loving environment where children are able to grow in all areas of development.Our 4s and TK teachers prepare children for Kindergarten by keeping current with WCPSS K-readiness standards, while also maintaining the activity and play-based approach to learning that is found in all of our classrooms.  All our teachers create a hands-on, interactive day that seeks to see children develop not only cognitively, but physically, socially and emotionally. We would love for your family to join our community. You are most welcome.

"Play is often talked about as if it were a relief from serious learning. But for children, play is serious learning. Play is really the work of childhood."
