Since 1973, Lord of Life Lutheran Preschool-Fairfax has had thousands of children as part of its creative and joyful program. We strive to provide a safe, loving, and nurturing atmosphere for preschool children from both the church and surrounding community.
We believe that learning and playing go hand and hand. Play is the natural way children try out ideas, make choices, practice grown-up behavior and develop a sense of control over their world. Young children learn best when they have an opportunity to practice their intellectual, physical and social skills through activities of their own choosing as well as activities structured by our trained staff.
The Preschool is a community outreach of Lord of Life Lutheran Church and reflects the church's commitment to early childhood education and to the children, families, and community it serves. The preschool is a non-profit Christian school and is open to all children regardless of religious or ethnic background. The Preschool is licensed by the Commonwealth of Virginia Department of Social Services.
We offer half day, morning preschool for children ages 2 1/2 to 5. Our program operates September (after Labor Day) through the first Friday after Memorial Day. We also offer a short summer camp for currently enrolled students during June.
We are now registering children for the 2015-16 school year. Please call the school to arrange a tour at [redacted]. Our tours are scheduled on an individual basis and take approximately 30 minutes.
In this happy busy place the children's natural curiosity is stimulated by both teacher directed as well as child initiated activities. The program includes both individual and group experiences that are appropriate for the child's developmental level, encompass a variety of learning styles and encourage creative exploration and play.
