The Herndon Community Center Preschool will host an open house and registration will be taken for the 2019-2020 school year. Visitors can meet the staff and tour the preschool room. The preschool is a state licensed program for children ages 4-5. The program operates weekdays from Monday-Friday from 9:00 a.m.–12:00 p.m. for 4-5 year-old students and 1:00-3:00 p.m. on Tuesday and Thursday for 3-4 year-old students. It follows the Fairfax County School calendar and runs September 2019-June 2020. Children must be potty-trained.
Our goal is to foster independence in a school setting. The teacher-child ratio is 1 to 7. The program has a theme-based, hands-on curriculum. The curriculum is designed to enhance motor skills, cognitive learning, language skills, social and emotional development and self-help skills. The staff offers a nurturing, positive, fun environment where children can explore the world with all their senses, while developing the skills needed to be ready for kindergarten.
