We encourage all interested families to tour the Children’s Center to learn more about our program. Tours are generally given at 10:00 am or 3:30 pm and must be scheduled in advance. We have found these times to be the best for parents to observe our program. These time frames avoid nap and meal times. Please call 703-534-4907 to schedule a tour with one of our administrative staff.
At this time due to COVID-19 we are unable to give tours in person. However, you are welcome to check out our virtual tours on our Facebook page.
At the end of the tour, you will be provided with an *application. When we have received your completed application form and $100 fee, your child will be placed on the waitlist.
You may place your child on the waitlist at any time. Most openings are filled in late summer. Mid-year openings are filled from the waitlist at the time the spot becomes available. When a space becomes available at the Center, the parent has three days to decide whether or not to enroll the child in the Center. Your child can remain on the waitlist for any length of time and will be removed only when requested or when your child becomes too old to attend FCMLCC.
In keeping with the mission of the Center, we reserve 50 percent of our enrollment to children eligible for the Child Care Assistance Program. Siblings of current and former FCMLCC students receive preference for any openings appropriate to their age. We try to maintain a balance of gender in all classrooms. Otherwise, spots are offered to families according to place on the waitlist.
