Take a look at this video and hear from our staff, consumers and families about how amazing Woodfords is: 


"Teaching at the Topsham Preschool has been an invaluable opportunity for my personal and professional growth. I've worked in a few early intervention programs, but this one stands out because of the emphasis on positive work culture, team building, collaboration with therapists, and mentorship. High teacher-to-student ratios create a natural opportunity for strong team building, and having several teachers in a classroom provides the benefit of exposure to many different ideas and strategies for planning and problem solving." - Kelsey, Lead Teacher, Topsham Preschool
