Fairfax Presbyterian Preschool
For 60 years, Fairfax Presbyterian Preschool (FPP) has provided quality, early childhood education to children ages 2 ½ to 5 years. Founded as a mission of Fairfax Presbyterian Church, FPP welcomes children of all faiths, cultures, and abilities. FPP’s programs provide rich and varied learning opportunities which contribute to a child’s social, emotional, physical, intellectual, and spiritual growth. FPP is licensed by the Commonwealth of Virginia and accredited by the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC). Philosophy FPP’s philosophy is that children learn best through play. A child’s learning experiences are more enriching when the child is engaged in the process and when that process is fun. Through play, we can assess the individual, social, physical, and intellectual needs of each student in an environment that is as exciting as it is natural. Moreover, children learn an amazing amount when they are having fun! To further our philosophy, classroom curriculum include a mixture of structured and unstructured activities. Children have a daily circle time and arts and crafts activities, as well as unstructured play time in classroom centers and outside on the playground. Parent Participation The strong sense of community felt at FPP is fostered by our use of Parent Helpers in the classrooms. FPP is a parent participation preschool and relies on parents or designated caregivers to serve as volunteers in their children’s classrooms approximately 5 times throughout the school year. Serving as a Parent Helper gives parents the unique opportunity to be a part of their child’s school day. It also encourages parents to get to know their child’s teacher and classmates, as well as other preschool parents and FPP staff. Parents, grandparents, and nannies are all encouraged to serve as Parent Helpers. For safety and security, FPP conducts background checks and FBI fingerprinting on all adults working in the classrooms.
