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

We’ve been lucky to call Fairlington our preschool for the last two years. Our very active son has loved it, and we’re so excited for our daughter to begin in the fall. Bohdy has had such fun-loving, caring teachers who are truly invested in his growth and development. He especially likes all the opportunities to play, from the classroom toys, group play, and the best playground in the area!

Very warm and welcoming.   The staff has been absolutely kind.  Every child is treated like an individual.   The inclusion program they have is run very nice. It might be an older school but the classrooms have great solid wood items which is not always seen.  The students all know where their spots are with neat circle seat markers.  I have a background in education and special education and this school uses a lot of different strategies and methods to meet the needs of everyone.
