Children's International School-Clarendon, Arlington

Based on 1 review


The Children’s International School (CIS) opened its first location back in 1985, and ever since, we have provided children with a responsive, caring, nurturing, and enriched environment where differentially learning strategies are facilitated by staff committed to the early childhood profession. Enrichment Activities We provide a variety of extracurricular activities that include music, dance, language and literacy. ​ A local librarian also frequently visits the schools to read popular children’s books. Since CIS staff members are multi-lingual, language classes are offered to the older toddler and pre-k groups at several of our locations. CIS broadens the learning experience whenever possible through appropriate field trips. Some field trips include: local museums, National Zoo, Pumpkin Patch and destinations in the community within walking distance. Children explore the local community by walking to local playgrounds, libraries, grocery stores, galleries, nurseries, pet stores, fire department, etc. Parents are notified in advance and encouraged to participate. Parent Partnerships Our curriculum recognizes parents as the primary educators in children’s lives and emphasizes a strong parent/teacher partnership in all aspects of the program. ​ At the beginning of the school year, we host parent information sessions to communicate our curriculum approach and overall program goals. Several times a year, we host receptions as an opportunity for our parents and teachers to meet outside the classroom.

I give this shabby chic little school a 4. It has a warm and cozy feel to it and they are always doing their best with the space they have. I like the Reggio philosophy, the unique and diverse things they learn, the big hugs and warmth from the teachers. I don’t like that there’s been a ton of teacher turnover, I wish they had a reception area and better entry control, and I wish the space was bigger.
