If you ask Pamela McFadden how she feels about being a part of HumanKind’s Therapeutic Foster Care program (TFC), she’ll tell you she’s learned a lot and gained a family—but she hasn’t always felt that way.
Little Wings Preschool is a high-quality, early education center for children ages 2.5-5 years. Using the HighScope curriculum, Little Wings encourages active learning with an emphasis on positive adult-child interactions and following the interests of the children.
Little Wings is an inclusive program, where children of diverse needs, abilities cultures, and economic backgrounds are learning alongside each other. All children, regardless of ability, will be given opportunities to participate fully in our learning program and every effort will be made to accommodate children with special needs. All children are special and need to grow and develop at their own pace and we are dedicated to ensuring each child has the best possible experience while enrolled at Little Wings Preschool.
We collaborate with Lynchburg City School’s Hutcherson Early Learning Program and offer inclusive placement opportunities for preschoolers. In cooperation with Lynchburg City Schools, children with Individual Education Plans (IEP) who qualify for inclusion placements are provided services through resource teachers and specialists within our regular classrooms.
Small classroom sizes with a 1:7 teacher/student ratio allow us to provide exceptional opportunities for children to learn and grow. We also offer a handicap-accessible playground which encourages hands-on play through climbing, digging in the sandbox, enjoying a trike path, and even painting and music.
Our program is HighScope-certified and licensed to operate by the Commonwealth of Virginia Division of Social Services. Little Wings also participates in the Virginia Star Quality Initiative with a current rating of four out of five stars.

Full or part-time enrollment is available year round.
