Woodlawn Learning Center

“Under One Roof”

“Treat people as if they were what they ought to be, and you help them to become what they are capable of being.”                 Johann Wolfgang von Goethe




            Welcome to Woodlawn Learning Center!  We are a building with programs and services “All Under One Roof.”  We know that “Good Beginnings Never End.”

Although we may be the oldest building in Hopewell, we are filled with Hopewell’s youngest students in the Head Start, Virginia Preschool, and Early Childhood Special Education classrooms.  We are also a building of second opportunities with our Adult Education program. 

            Woodlawn maintains operations with Federal, State, and Local Funds.  We are an example of teamwork and excellence in Hopewell, Virginia, and across the United States.

            The teachers, staff, and children are committed to creating and participating in real learning experiences every day.   We are filled with P.R.I.D.E. and will always work to “Change the World – One Child at a Time!”
