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.
