Fairfax United Methodist Church Preschool
Fairfax United Methodist Church Preschool is an accredited preschool located in Fairfax City, near the intersection of Rt. 50 and University Dr. The school began in 1976 and offers morning classes for three, four and five year olds. Most of our lead teachers have degrees in elementary education and many have done graduate level courses in the newer field of early childhood education. Our assistant teachers have related degrees, some in social work and some in elementary education or psychology. There are two teachers in each classroom and generally 14 three year olds, 16 four year olds and 18 children in the pre-kindergarten class. We have a large outdoor area for playground time, and we have an indoor area for playing when the weather is blustery. Registration begins the first week of January for our Church members and returning preschool families and for the community during the third week of January. We enroll on a first-come, first-served basis. Additional information about our program such as our philosophy and goals, registration information, forms and other details can be found on this site. We are an outreach of the United Methodist Church, but we welcome families of any religion or ethnic background, and love to share the traditions, music and foods of all our preschool families. We invite you to call or visit our preschool any time to ask questions, obtain information or to arrange a personal tour of the school. We love to talk about our program!

The general philosophy and goals of Fairfax United Methodist Church Preschool guides our program through developmentally appropriate practices, committed to balanced growth in social, emotional, intellectual, physical, creative, and spiritual areas. Because we believe play is the most developmentally appropriate and effective avenue of learning for a child under six, guided creative exploration and play will be the foundation upon which all learning opportunities are built.
