It’s time to think about preschool.

If you’re thinking about starting preschool come September, now is the time to get your ducks in a row. Enrollment at many area preschools takes place in January and February. Most preschools offer tours on request, and a many in our area are hosting open houses in the coming weeks. Here are a few of them:

Fredericksburg Preschool Inc. (the cooperative preschool at the Presbyterian Church in downtown Fredericksburg) – Tuesday, Jan. 24 and Wednesday, Jan. 25, from 1 to 2 p.m.

Christ Lutheran Church Preschool (1300 Augustine Avenue in Fredericksburg) – Thursday, Jan. 19, from 9:30 a.m. to 11 a.m. Call 540/373-5087 x17 if interested.

Fredericksburg Academy – The private school located in Spotsylvania County will host its final “Discover FA” day Saturday, Jan. 28, from 10 a.m. until noon. Find more information here. FA is starting a preschool program in August. The school will also be having two neighborhood meetings to talk to parents and others specifically about the school’s early childhood program, for ages 3 through kindergarten. One will be at the Lee’s Hill South Community Center Jan. 18 from 1:30 until 3:30 p.m. The other will be at the Idlewild Community Center Jan. 19 from 1:30 until 3:30 p.m.

We ran story last November that included information on several preschools in our area. Find it here.

    Both of my darlings went to
    FPI while I worked. Cooperative does not mean you can’t do both. It
    was a wonderful experience for all of us. Play based learning is
    documented as the best for preschoolers and both of my darlings are
    excelling in elementary school. My opinion, FPI is an
    excellent school!
