Welcome to A Child's Place Preschool's website! A Child's Place Preschool was established in 1969. The preschool meets at Galilee United Methodist Church in Sterling, Virginia. We are operated by Director Gayle Massey who is supported by a team of dedicated teachers and teacher assistants.
Going to school for the first time is one of the most important milestones in a child's life. We will do all we can to help make this experience a very positive one for both you and your child. In an atmosphere of acceptance and respect, your child is encouraged to grow emotionally, physically, socially and intellectually.
A Child's Place Preschool offers developmentally appropriate Early Childhood Education curricula based on the guidelines established by the National Association for the Education of Young Children. Teachers also utilize Virginia's Foundation Blocks for Early Learning: Comprehensive Standards for Four-Year-Olds in developing curriculum and planning classroom activities. Download the Virginia's Foundation Blocks document here. Go to the Curriculum Overview page for further information.
