The Woods, A Montessori School, was founded in July 2018 as a private school dedicated to the Montessori philosophy and method of teaching developed by Dr. Maria Montessori. Its sister school, The Springs, has more than 50 years of experience in Montessori education and has been a model of authenticity for The Woods from the beginning.

Located in Woodbridge, Virginia, The Woods opened its doors with only one small classroom of six students and has continued growing. In 2020, the school achieved two accreditations, making it the only American Montessori Society Accredited and COGNIA Accredited school in Prince William County, VA.

Today, The Woods has grown into seven classrooms – three Toddler House and four Children’s House – and starts the 2022-2023 academic year with 133 enrolled students.
