Preschool l

Approximately 3 Years of Age

Educational Preschool Program

Preschool I students are passionate in all they do! They are eager to learn academically and so excited to begin writing their names. Their speech is intelligible. They are quick to reiterate a phrase from their teacher or imitate a situation they witnessed. In a conversation with a Preschool I student, you will never be quite sure what is going to come out of their mouths! Their imaginations are wild… and fun!

Preschool I children move together in groups of 8 with 1 teacher. All Preschool I teachers have a minimum of a Bachelor’s Degree. Our preschool program in Northern VA is ideal for busy parents who want their child to experience lots of different types of activities. In the Preschool I Program, there is a significant change – the introduction of a reading program.
