Fairlington Preschool is a play based preschool that uses the High Scope Curriculum. We are based in Alexandria, VA and currently operate classes for 2 year olds to 6 year olds. We are working on expanding our hours but are currently operating from 9 am – 12 pm. Our Kindgarten program runs from 9 am – 2 pm.
Fairlington Preschool is an inclusion preschool. We serve both neurotypical students as well as though with special needs all in the same classroom. We partner with Playworks Speech to provide speech and occupational therapy to our students while they are at school. Thanks to grant funding we are able to subsidize some of the cost of therapy so that it’s accessible to anyone who needs it.
Fantastic Outdoor Facilities
Our playground is one of the largest in the area. We have a fully fenced-in playground that is equipped with a play structure, a hill slide, a garden, a sand pit, swings, and a wooded area complete with trails. We also have a native garden with trails for the children to take walks.
Life Long Learning
Using the High Scope curriculum allows children to have an active role in their learning. When children are able to explore their interests in depth they become more invested in their education. Our goal is to foster an environment where children enjoy coming to school and ignite a passion that will remain throughout their schooling years.
What other parents say
This is our son’s second year at Fairlington and we (and he!) absolutely love it. The teachers and staff are incredible and make each day different, fun and engaging. We also love that Fairlington is an inclusive preschool where all children can play, learn and thrive together. Finally, the playground might be our son’s favorite part — it is huge and is an absolutely fantastic place to play and explore nature!― Darcy K.
This is our second year there, with both of my kiddos starting in the 2’s class. I was super nervous about my babies starting preschool but FPS exceeded my expectations. The teachers and staff are so warming and love what they do. My kids love going to school (even my highly sensitive boy enjoys it now and found his comfort teachers/friends there, and the teachers were very helpful during his tough transition). We’re so grateful for FPS and we’ve made some great friends through there.― Cristina T.
