OUR CHILD CARE CENTER

About Us

Our Child Care Center has been serving families in Falls Church and the surrounding area for nearly 30 years. We will be relocating to Friendship United Methodist Church starting in Fall 2019.

Hours of Operation

Our center is open Monday-Friday 7:00 a.m. - 6:00 p.m.

School Size

Our maximum enrollment is 40 students: ten in the two year-old class, fourteen in the three year-old class, and sixteen in the four year-old class.

Class Size

We employ three teachers and four instructional aides. Our child to teacher ratio is: two year-olds - 5:1, three year-olds - 7:1, and four year-olds - 8:1.

Meals Provided

We serve breakfast, lunch, and snack. Our lunches are provided by the Fairfax Food Services & Caterers and are delivered daily.

Inclement Weather Policy

The Child Care Center follows Fairfax County Schools' closing schedule in the event of bad weather. Specifically, this means that if Fairfax County Schools announce a one-hour delay, the Center will not open until 8:00 AM. If Fairfax County Schools announce a two-hour delay, the Center will not open until 9:00 AM. Whenever Fairfax County Schools close because of inclement weather, the Center will also close on the same schedule. It is important to check with local radio and television stations for up-to-date information on delays and closing of Fairfax County Schools.

Location

Friendship Child Care Center is located at 3527 Gallows Road, Falls Church just inside the Capital Beltway.

The Child Care Center entrance is the right-most entryway accessed from the lower parking lot.

APPROACH

Curriculum

We have a preschool curriculum tailored to the ages of the children. All the children study the alphabet, numbers, colors, shapes, and sizes. Science and math concepts are a part of the regular instructions.

The children are engaged in at least one table activity each day, such as an art project or an academic paper.

The children learn to relate to each other through play. They also learn manners and proper ways to interact with other children and their teachers.

Rest & Play

The children nap in the afternoon after lunch. When the weather permits, each class goes outside twice a day.

We have a playground and indoor activity space.

Chapel

We offer chapel twice a month during the school year and music class with a special music teacher; participate in Vacation Bible School one week in the summer months.

Special Activities

We have the fire puppets; a veterinarian; a postman; a pilot and a dentist come to the center to talk with the children during the year. We have other programs that celebrate special days, and our parents are always invited to join us.
