Early Childhood (Pre-K)
Pre-K Enrollment for 2020-21
Pre-K enrollment began April 15 for parents who had previously called in and set up appointments or filled out paper or online forms. The first part of the process can be handled over the telephone. If you have a student who is eligible for the Virginia Preschool Initiative, please call 703-619-8026 or email firstname.lastname@example.org and a member of staff will contact you.
Every student succeeds: Provide safe and inclusive first school experiences that prepare the whole child and inspire a life-long love for learning.
Early Childhood Programs are a critical PIECE of a quality educational experience. We endeavor to:
Prepare the whole child
Ensure positive experiences
Cooperate with families and the community
Establish a foundation for success
