The preschool is an extension of the Community Center, offering a half-day program for children ages 3-5. The preschool strives to provide a warm, safe and nurturing atmosphere with a wide variety of age appropriate activities designed to promote the social, intellectual, physical and emotional aspects of learning. Teachers work to create an environment for the children to learn through active exploration and discovery. Particular emphasis is placed on helping develop social skills such as talking, helping, listening, sharing and negotiating.
Appreciation of the outdoor environment, which includes water and sand play, ride-on toys, a miniature Western town, a climbing structure, and an outdoor art studio – is encouraged as well.
The preschoolers are offered a wide range of after-school classes available at the adjacent Community Center of LCF, such as all-star sports, cooking, fun with clay, fairytales and folklore, and dance. These classes are designed to further enhance the preschool experience and are open only to children currently enrolled in the preschool.
Currently, the preschool has limited openings in its 3- and 4-year-old programs. The school is located at 4469 Chevy Chase Dr.
