Fall Preschool Registration Underway

all starsThe Fairfax County Park Authority operates two fully licensed preschools at these RECenters: Lee District in Franconia and Spring Hill in McLean. Our programs nurture each child’s emotional, social and intellectual growth in a safe and inclusive environment. Since children learn best through creative play and a developmental approach, we provide hands-on activities that enhance learning, promote independence and foster a positive self-image. Our goal is to help each child reach their potential with socialization and school readiness skills.

The preschool experience provides age-appropriate activities in art, science, circle time, outdoor play, centers, music and more. We welcome visitors to observe on an appointment basis.  

Requirements

Children must be the appropriate age by the beginning of class and/or no later than September 30. Children must be fully potty-trained.

Enrollment Forms: Our preschools are licensed by the Virginia Department of Social Services, parents must submit the following:

  • Immunization record
  • Recent Physical Record (within 12 months)
  • Completed Emergency Form with Pick-Up Authorization
  • Proof of Child’s Identity (we do not collect these; just need to show it)

Registration

Registration/Tuition: Registration is paid monthly and is due the month prior. There is an annual registration fee per child. If there is space available, new students are taken at any time throughout the school year. Registration for the upcoming school year takes place in March. It is important to enroll your child early to reserve your spot! Space is limited.

Holidays: Preschool follows Fairfax County Public Schools’ holiday schedule. However, preschool follows Fairfax County Government for inclement weather.
