Our parent handbook is a valuable resource, and gives parents a wealth of information regarding our Center’s policies and expectations. The handbook includes forms to bring in on your child’s first day of school, as well as a list of the members on our Board of Directors. The handbook provides information regarding field trips, our program, and the outdoor learning center. It also describes our curriculum in depth, gives and overview of our Center’s goals, and describes our policies on parent involvement and visitors. Finally, the handbook lists our discipline, health, and pick-up policies. To learn about our Center in detail, especially if you are a new or prospective parent, we recommend downloading the handbook by clicking on the link below. Enjoy learning about our organization and how we can make a profound difference in your child’s life!

If Fairfax County Schools are closed, we are closed.
If Fairfax County schools are open 2 hours late, we open at 8:30 am.

Our general policy is to remain open until 6:00 p.m. We ask parents to leave work earlier so that our staff may leave on time and so that both parents and staff may have a safe trip home. If Fairfax County Public Schools close early due to inclement weather the center will close at 3:00.
