About the Provider

Description: Fairlington Preschool is an outreach ministry of Fairlington United Methodist Church. We welcome children and families of all faiths and cultures. We believe in the uniqueness of every child. We believe all children develop at a different pace. We feel the differences which exist among children and within their family experiences should be recognized and built upon so all might grow in the capacity to relate and develop as human beings.

Fairlington Preschool provides classes for children from 2 years to 5 years, 11 months. Classes meet from 2 to 5 days per week, 9 am until Noon. The preschool is licensed with the State of Virginia.

We teach each child the skills necessary to be successful in school and life in a rich learning environment where each child is valued for who he or she is. Our classroom experiences are based on the High/Scope approach to learning. We recognize play as the natural mode of learning for the young child. Within the context of play, our curriculum emphasizes sensory awareness, independent thinking and decision making. It is our hope that children and their families will feel welcome here.

Our goal for all children is the development of a positive self concept. When children find success and approval in preschool, their confidence grows. They begin to build the kind of self-image that will allow them to reach out freely to others and want others to reach out to them.

We believe that education is more effective when parents and teachers work together. Through classroom participation and family education programs, parents and professionals can learn from each other. Their partnership promotes and enriches the learning environment for children at home and at school.
