Westminster Weekday Preschool is a developmental program that encourages each child to grow socially, emotionally, physically, and cognitively at his/her own pace. Our curriculum is based on an understanding of how children grow and develop, and how they learn and attempt to make sense of the world around them. Our belief is that children acquire this knowledge about their physical and social worlds through play and interaction with other children, adults and objects. We currently serve 77 students, ages 2-1/2 through 5.
WWP is licensed by the Commonwealth of Virginia. We are proud that the preschool has been recognized by Northern Virginia Magazine as one of the top preschools in the area.
Westminster Weekday Preschool accepts children of all racial, ethnic and religious backgrounds, including children with special needs. Our program is ecumenical in our observance of seasonal and religious holidays.
The preschool is administered by a Board of Directors consisting of parents, church members, and staff, under the direct authority/supervision of the Session, the ruling body of Westminster Presbyterian Church.
The WWP school year runs from September - June. Registration for the fall occurs in January of that year (for example, registration for the school year beginning in September 2014 will be in January 2014).
WWP holds two registration periods, an "In-House" Registration Period followed by an "Open" Registration Period. "In-House" Registration includes families of current or former WWP students and Westminster Presbyterian Church member families. To be considered under the definition of church member, at least one parent must have joined the church by December 31 of the year prior to registration (for example, December 31, 2013 for the January 2014 registration period).
Registration for the fall of 2013 is now closed.
