Falls Church - McLean Children's Center

Whole Child

The Center is much more than a typical preschool or day care facility because we emphasize the well-being of the “whole child,” both socially and academically. The lessons we teach our diverse group of 2-5 year olds creates conscientious and caring individuals.
Learn more about why we are different.

Early Intervention

One of the most beneficial characteristics of the Center is our regular testing by our trained specialists in Child Find, occupational therapy, counseling, and speech/language pathology. Our trained specialists and low student-teach ratio helps our children excel.
