The foundation of Rollingwood Academy's core is based on the concept that a child's early years are the most critical period in human growth and development. The children are encouraged to explore, practice and question their surroundings while building bonds of trust and respect with those around them.
Rollingwood Academy is set back in the peaceful neighborhood of Rollingwood. It is easily accessed from Holland Road near Nimmo Parway, Princess Anne Road and Dam Neck Road.
When you enter the doors of Rollingwood Academy, you immediately feel a sense of home. The rooms are spacious and colorful, showcasing murals painted by local artists. In the upstairs galley, an art wall proudly displays artwork from students dating back to 1999. While our facility remains locked at all times, we have an Open Door Policy welcoming our parents to observe their child at their convenience using our surveillance system. Camaras are located in each classroom and the exterior of the building as well. This allows for peace of mind and parent observations to occur without disruption to the classroom.
Rollingwood Academy staff are trained to answer any questions from parents and families visiting our school. With our low turnover rate, visitors quickly realize that the staff are the true gems of this award winning facility. Our teachers are degreed, experienced, nurturing and passionate which resonates in our friendly, homelike environment.
Our teachers must complete classsroom training through our hands-on curriculum and observation of our experienced teachers to provide an environment that adheres to our mission.
Rollingwood Academy teachers are encouraged to collaborate and implement their own creative materials as an added component to the classroom and curriculum. Our teachers strive to meet the needs of every child through a continuously evolving curriculum. Teachers have completed undergraduate studies or higher in Early Childhood Education or related studies. Rollingwood Academy teaching assistants have been trained in the school philosophy and have years of experience working with children.
