Mount Vernon Presbyterian Preschool
At MVPC Preschool, we follow a theme-based curriculum, which motivates children and unlocks the natural learner in every child. Through this curricular model teachers and children take a holistic approach to learning. Concepts, ideas and lessons are integrated within each theme and are revisited in later themes. As children discover, play and explore, they form patterns and understand the connections in the learning process. Our program is half day (9am to noon) and children must be 30 months old by Oct. 1st to enroll. We have extended day “Lunch Bunch” for one hour on Monday through Friday. Most days we also offer a changing variety of After School Enrichment Classes that have included Engineering, Art, Science, Cooking, Drama, Zoom around the Room, Spanish, Crafts and Book Buddies. These classes are from 1 to 2pm. Children attend chapel, say grace before snack time and are encouraged to grow spiritually in their faith-based tradition. To enhance our dynamic curriculum students attend weekly yoga, music and library classes. We have a large fenced and shady playground, equipped with modern playground equipment and lots of wide open space for active and creative play during our student’s daily recess time. When the weather limits outdoor time we have a large indoor space with soft play equipment for indoor recess. Our 4 Day and Pre-K students participate in the fun and hands on school readiness curriculum, Get Set for School by “Handwriting Without Tears”. This program is an award winning curriculum that focuses on playful learning to develop coloring, drawing, early math, literacy and handwriting readiness skills. For more information about our curriculum for all classes please see the Parent Handbook.

St. Luke's Day School

St. Luke's Day School offers an environment that encourages curiosity... and an awareness of the excitement of learning. St. Luke's Day School believes in the beauty, creativity and intelligence of a child's play. When singing, playing and adventuring, our students learn to have fun while participating in group activities and dynamics. The program is designed to help children develop habits of observation, questioning and listening. Children are encouraged to become aware of their feelings and to express them in an appropriate manner. Our program, with various learning activities and playtime, prepares the children to recognize and use their intellectual and creative abilities in future learning tasks. We base our curriculum on an initiative developed by the Virginia Department of Education called Virginia's Foundation Blocks for Early Learning. Look often into our busy, noisy, creative classrooms and see your child at work and play. Play is an important part of learning and creates the appropriate skill level for optimum learning to be achieved. Above all, we give them time to grow; time and room to explore; to experiment; and to discover. We offer them time to play… time to be a child. The children are introduced to a balanced program of interaction with friends in both teacher directed and child-directed experiences. The daily schedule includes free choice of time spent in the play area, circle activities for the group, Music class, Creative Movement class and a weekly chapel service. We are committed to working closely with parents toward the welfare of the whole family. Parents are welcome to visit during the child's time at school after checking in with the front office.
