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.

Exploring Learning & Fun CEC

We have been so fortunate to be able to offer one of the best... home-based programs around for the past 10 years! Unfortunately, the down side is that we are typically on a very long waiting list with being limited to 12 children. Currently, we are on a wait until Fall of 2019 however we recently found a location within a minute from our current location. We cater to families looking for a smaller, intimate setting that focuses on each individual child's needs. Our maximum enrollment is 48 children for our entire center. This means our classroom sizes will be very small with a very low teacher to student ratio. We offer a 3~1 ratio for infants, 5~1 for toddlers and our preschool classes are at a 7~1 ratio. Included in tuition is: classes in Spanish/French, Dance/Music/movement, cooking, science, horticulture. Breakfast, lunch and snacks are also included. Our expected opening date is April/May time-frame. We have a wonderful, accredited, home-based program here at E.L.F. We located off of Rt. 50, close to 28, 29 and close proximity to 66. We keep our ratios very low (Maximum 3~1) to ensure quality care and supervision. All of our staff come highly qualified with certifications in first aid/CPR, MAT and background checks. We work one on one with all of the children to ensure that they are getting the BEST education possible in the comfort and flexibility of a home environment! We offer a loving, home-like atmosphere, attentive care, and opportunities for creative development. By redirecting negative behavior and using positive reinforcement, our children thrive in a secure and happy environment. The potential to gain knowledge through interaction with others, and adhering to a schedule which enhances the security for our children is very important. Combined with a great curriculum, planned daily schedule, dedicated teachers, and an open line of communication, your child will thrive in what we are proud to say is "simply the best home-based program around" The following is just a portion of what we have to offer: -Daily curriculum including; reading, writing, math, geography and science. -Great field trips to explore the world around us -Music, movement, tummy-time and reading for our infant group. -Classes including; Spanish, art, music/instruments, dance/movement, computer and cooking! -Healthy, well balanced, home-cooked meals. -Outdoor play-time with water tables, pool, sandbox, slides, swings etc.... -Daily secured blog on our website that will include information about our daily activities, monthly newsletter, menu's, pictures and any other important information. -Great summer camp program filled with activities, water games, pool-time, field trips and more!
