Fairfax United Methodist Church Preschool

We are an accredited preschool located in Fairfax City, near the... intersection of Rt. 50 and University Dr. The school began in 1976 and offers morning classes for three, four and five year olds. Most of our lead teachers have degrees in elementary education and many have done graduate level courses in the newer field of early childhood education. Our assistant teachers have related degrees, some in social work and some in elementary education or psychology. There are two teachers in each classroom and generally 14 three year olds, 16 four year olds and 18 children in the pre-kindergarten class. We have a large outdoor area for playground time, and we have an indoor area for playing when the weather is blustery. Registration begins the first week of January for our Church members and returning preschool families and for the community during the third week of January. We enroll on a first-come, first-served basis. Additional information about our program such as our philosophy and goals, registration information, forms and other details can be found on this site. We are an outreach of the United Methodist Church, but we welcome families of any religion or ethnic background, and love to share the traditions, music and foods of all our preschool families. We invite you to call or visit our preschool any time to ask questions, obtain information or to arrange a personal tour of the school. Contact Diana Jenkins, the Director at the preschool Office 703 591-3177. We love to talk about our program! Goals Fairfax United Methodist Church Preschool is committed to providing the best possible environment for nurturing young children. We encourage each individual child by placing equal emphasis on physical, social, emotional, creative, intellectual and spiritual development. Rich and varied active learning opportunities, guided by warm, self-awareness and overall competence. We are dedicated to supporting the child and the family. Our curriculum is based on the belief that, for children, play is a developmental opportunity to explore their world, find out how to get along with others, test their skills and muscles, try out new ideas, and problem-solve. We offer daily opportunities to explore art media, science, writing, dramatic play, building, math, literature and the outdoors. Teachers guide and extend the play to refine emerging social and academic skills. All of the activities presented by the teachers are carefully evaluated for a positive educational outcome that can be incorporated into play while giving children lots of practice of important skills. Our program is a part of the Church's educational and outreach ministries and age-appropriate Christian values guide all curriculum areas. A loving atmosphere of acceptance, trust and structured freedom is our goal to help move children toward love of self, others and God. Our Preschool admits children of any race, religion, national or ethnic origin to all the rights, privileges and activities generally accorded or made available through the program.
