all starsThe Fairfax County Park Authority operates three fully licensed preschools. One is at Riverbend Park. Two are at Rec Centers: Franconia and Spring Hill in McLean.

Our Rec Center 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.  

For information about preschool at Riverbend Park, see Forest Preschool.
