Programs

Fairfax Presbyterian Preschool offers several half-day programs for children ages two-and-a-half to five years old. FPP’s school year begins in September and runs through the end of May. Classes meet from 9:15 a.m.–12:15 p.m. Students have the option to attend Later Gators (lunch and play) from 12:15–1:15pm daily. For extended care options offered through FPC (before- and/or after-care), click here.

FPP generally follows the Fairfax County Public Schools’ calendar with respect to holidays and school closings.

Before starting school, all children must be toilet trained. For our 2 Day class ONLY, we permit the use of Pull-Ups training pants during the first few months of school to deal with the occasional accident for our youngest students.

Additional Programs

FPP offers a variety of special enrichment and after school programs for students.

Music and Movement

All of our preschool classes participate in our Music and Movement program at least once each week during the regular school day. The class is led by our Special Programs Teacher who incorporates music and simple pieces of equipment to encourage creative movement by the children.

Chapel

All classes attend a monthly chapel session with Pastor Henry of Fairfax Presbyterian Church. Chapel lessons focus on the “Fruit of the Spirit”: love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control. The general nature of the lessons resonates with a wide range of people regardless of their specific faith or beliefs.

Later Gators

FPP offers a daily lunch program where children may stay an additional hour to eat lunch (packed from home) and play. Later Gators pricing ranges from $30/month (for 1 day/week) to $100/month (for 5 days/week).

Kindercorner

Our four and five day classes participate in weekly enrichment activities led by our Preschool Director. The interactive lessons focus on introducing the children to basic science, math, and engineering concepts.

Special Guests

During the year, special guests come to FPP to present educational programs to the children. Past programs have included a visit from a local dentist, the Police Department, and area Firefighters, complete with a tour of their fire truck.

After School Programs

Students wishing to extend their day at FPP may stay after school to attend various enrichment programs that have included language, music, and acting classes. The church also offers an extended day of care through before school and after school options.

Special Events

Throughout the year, students participate in a variety of special events at FPP including Pajama Day, Spirit Week, Thanksgiving Pow Wow, Color Days, Family Sing-Alongs, and other programs that enrich our curriculum. The Preschool also holds an annual Back-to-School Picnic at a nearby park where parents and students have the opportunity to meet and play with other preschool families.

Summer Camp

Following the regular school year, FPP offers a two-week summer camp for all classes. Camp begins at 9:30 am and ends after lunch at 1:00 pm.

Special Services

Nursery

FPP offers childcare services for younger siblings of enrolled children when a parent is serving as a Parent Helper in the classroom. Nursery service is provided as needed for a nominal fee. FPP’s Nursery is a two-room suite stocked with cribs, activity tables, toys, books, and movies. If you are a Parent Helper and have a nursing infant, arrangements can be made for you to nurse your child during the school day.

Curb Service

FPP offers parents the option of either walking their children into the building or using Curb Service during morning drop off and afternoon pick up. Curb Service allows parents to remain in their cars while an FPP staff member assists the children in exiting or entering the vehicle. Curb Service is optional and can be used at any time during the school year. Many parents find Curb Service to be especially helpful on inclement weather days or when a younger sibling is asleep in the car.
