St. Philip Early Childhood Center, Falls Church

Based on 10 reviews

About

St. Philip Early Childhood Center (formerly Corpus Christi) is an early learning environment focused on the whole child. The classes integrate early academics in a play based themed environment. The teachers work with each child to meet his/her best potential. At the preschool level our ratios are 10:1 except for the 2 year old program where it is 6:1. We have several different options for 2, 3, 4, & 5 year olds. We have full time and part time care. We offer summer, Christmas and Easter camps. A hot lunch program is offered for parents who are interested. We offer extended care on a regular basis or it can be used as a drop in if parents are running late or have an appointment. Tours are available year round. At the elementary campus the average class size is 20. All classes have active boards and a rigorous academic curriculum as well as extra curricular activities. Our middle school offers advanced math and tracks in those subjects where able. Extended day is offered from 7 - 6 and a bus is available to parents cross campus.

St. Philip is a wonderful learning center where students are a priority. My son is in the two year old program. Teachers and assistants are wonderful. They teach necessary skills that would help kids be better prepared before going to kindergarten. The curriculum target academics, but social skills so there is a balance. Teachers always communicate to parents what students are learning and the art teacher is amazing too! The play areas are great... more

St. Philip’s ECC is a wonderful place. My son was there for 2 years before starting kindergarten. The teaches and administrators are very caring and professional, the curriculum and activities they offer prepared him for school and his transition was seem less. Their facilities are great with lots of natural light and open spaces for the children to play in. I would totally recommend it.
Response from the provider:
Thank you so much.

We have been a part of the Corpus Christi family since our daughter began in Kindergarten. At that time the Kindergarten was located at the Early Childhood Center (ECC). We enjoyed the pleasant and vibrant environment highlighted by dedicated, caring and nurturing teachers who prepared our child for transition to the main campus. The location of the ECC is spectacular, nestled in a quaint neighborhood with an abundance of green space and... more

As soon as I walked into the school, I knew it was a special place! My son has completed two years here thus far, in the 2 and 3-year-old programs, and I am very happy with his experience. It´s a caring community, where teachers who haven´t even had my son in class say hello to him by name in the hallways! I feel that any concerns I ever may have had were taken seriously by the teacher, the teacher´s assistant, or the administration, and... more

My son has been attending Corpus Christi Early Childhood Center for the past year and will start kindergarten this August. The preschool program and summer camps have been a terrific fit for him and he has blossomed over this past year. The teachers and staff are very dedicated and have an unbelievable amount of experience compared to the school he previously attended. The experience shows with the outstanding classroom organization,... more

We love Corpus Christi, the staff are all fabulous! Mrs Stich does a excellent job coordinating & offering a large variety of extra curricular activities for the preschoolers to be involved in. The student population is very diverse, which we love. We are very pleased with the academics & kindergarten prep, as well.

This is the eight year that my children have been going to Corpus Christi Schools. We started at the Pre School campus and now both of my boys are in the elementary/Middle school campus. Corpus Christi is not only a wonderful school, it is also our second home. All the Teachers and Staff are friendly and give our children the love they need while we are at work. The academics portion is way beyond my expectations and are always ahead of the... more
