​Pinewood School           

About Us

Pinewood School is a small, family-owned day care that has been in business for over fifty years. It is the oldest day care in Gainesville under the same ownership. 


We pride ourselves in being able to welcome back families that began at Pinewood when we started, and we currently have several third generation families enrolled.


Please stop by and visit our facility and see why families keep coming back. You will find that our warm and friendly staff is a contributing factor!

At Pinewood we  strive to provide experiences that will enrich and enhance social, emotional, physical, cognitive, and creative development in a culturally diverse environment. Parents partnering with teachers in the care and education of their child is encouraged.


Responding to each child as an individual and focusing on their natural strengths is fundamental in our care. We use a lot of encouragement and praise which builds the child's self-esteem and confidence, thus fosters success and growth. We also strive to create a feeling of home away from home so the child feels comfortable and safe throughout the day.
