Reggio Emilia Preschools in Alexandria VA

St. John's Episcopal Preschool
About Us: Our preschool curriculum is inspired by the philosophy of teaching young children that originates in Reggio Emilia, Italy. We believe children possess a natural capacity for joy, a sense of wonder about the world and the motivation to make sense of their world. Every young child is intelligent and capable of constructing knowledge through interactions with parents, peers, and educators. At St. John's, children's investigations take on multiple dimensions as they explore the world using their unique personalities and abilities. We also believe all children have the right to caring relationships and rich learning environments provided by adults who listen to their ideas, value their thinking, and thereby broaden their understanding of their world. Our Preschool was founded by parishioners as a part of the church's bicentennial celebration. As a ministry of St. John's Church, we seek to form a bridge to the wider community, reflect the diversity around us, and support the full potential of childhood. The Preschool welcomed its first class of four children in March 1997. In the ensuing years, we have grown to an enrollment of 45 children, ranging in age from 2-1/2 to 5 years. We offer three morning classes with mixed-age extended day options in the morning Early Birds program and the afternoon Kids' Workshop. St. John's Episcopal Preschool is a child care center in Washington, DC. We are open from 8:00am to 3:30pm. To learn more about us, please send us an email.
