Yes, we are open! Here’s what to expect:

Our 2020-2021 school year is underway! If you have a preschool, pre-k, or kindergarten-aged child and you need in-person child care and education, five days a week, please give us a call at 703-481-6678 today!

We have two classrooms that can accommodate limited numbers of children, due to our new COVID-19 precautions. There are only a handful of spaces left in each class and we anticipate that both classes will be full soon.

At this time we expect

  • to be open five days a week for all students with limited class size
  • in-person learning with no online classes, unless required due to unforeseen closure
  • to maintain our normal program groups (part-day, school day, and full-day) with no split schedules

We have made modifications in the following areas:

  • drop off and pick up procedures will change in order to do a daily health checks and minimize the number of people entering our building
  • full-day pick up time is temporarily changing — parents must pick up their children between 4:30 and 5:00 — in order to allow our staff to adhere to new cleaning and sanitation requirements
  • number of children in the classrooms to better accommodate social distancing guidelines and age-requirements from the Virginia Department of Social Services (VDSS)
  • cleaning and disinfecting procedures, which will impact our end-of day routine and pick-up time
  • keeping classes separate during recess, lunch, nap-time, and Specials
  • temporarily modifying our mixed-age classes to include one classroom for 3 and 4 year olds and one classroom for 4 and 5 year olds
  • masks are required for all staff and children
  • school events and family gatherings will be paused until such time as it is safe
  • parent education events will look a little different — stay tuned for more information

We are using all current available resources from The Center for Disease Control (CDC), Virginia Department of Social Services (VDSS), and Virginia Department of Health (VDH) to make our plans and are committed to:

  • Providing a clean, safe learning environment for our students and staff
  • Adhering to current, science-based recommendations for managing the transmission of the COVID-19 virus
  • Maintaining open lines of communication about the health of our community
  • Making them most of out of our school year and having fun together
