Christ Lutheran Preschool is a small nonprofit Christian preschool. As an extension of the Christ Lutheran Church we seek to provide an atmosphere of Christian love and understanding. Our main focus is the traditional morning preschool classes and children can participate solely in the preschool program but we also offer before school care, lunch bunch, enrichment classes, and after school care.
Preschool-Registration for 2018-2019 is happening right now. Enroll today! Preschool-Registration-2018-2019
We offer classes for the following ages:
- Two Year Olds
- Three Year Olds
- Four Year Olds
Children who are two years old do not need to be toilet trained to be part of our two year old classes.
Goals and Philosophy
Our emphasis is on social development. We feel the total development of the preschooler is far more important than the acquisition of factual knowledge. The child’s social development and self-concept are most important at this point. Basic to this development is consideration and love for others… lessons which cannot be learned with rigid rules and regulations, but require a relaxed and loving atmosphere.
The following list of basic goals have been derived from the philosophy stated above. During each child’s time with us, we hope that he/she will learn to do the following:
- learn to interact with others
- learn to share in work and play
- learn to assume responsibility for one’s actions
- learn to take pride in achievements and, by the same token, acknowledge mistakes
- learn to express ideas and feelings
- learn to make choices
- learn to compromise and contribute within their group
- learn to finish started projects
In addition, while our emphasis is on social development, we do recognize that the preschool years are a time for growth and learning in many areas. For this reason, our curriculum will include appropriate experiences with these activities:
- Free-play and group sharing
- Stories, puppets, and drama
- Numbers and counting
- Arts and crafts
- Fine and gross motor development
- Outdoor play
- Field trips
- Mid-morning snack
- Bible-based weekly chapel
- Family activities

This class is a play-group-type program for toddlers who will be two years old by September 30.
Three-year-olds have a choice of attending two days a week or three days a week. To be in the three year old class, a child must be three years old by September 30 and must be toilet trained (no diapers or pull-ups).
The four-year-olds have a choice of attending three days a week or five days a week. Children must be four years old by September 30th to register for a four-year-old class. Children must be toilet trained.
EXTENDED DAY SCHOOL:
We are in the process of adding before and after school programs for our preschoolers beginning at 8:30 a.m. until 3 p.m.
The two-year-old classes meet twice a week — one class meets on Tuesday and Thursday and the other meets on Wednesday and Friday. Classes will be from 9:30 am to 12:00 noon.
All other preschool classes will meet from 9:15 am to 12:00 noon.
There are two classes for three-year-olds: Wednesday/Friday mornings, and Monday/Wednesday/Friday mornings. We recommend that young threes enroll in the Wednesday/Friday program.
There are two classes for four-year-olds: Monday/Wednesday/Friday mornings and Monday/Tuesday/Wednesday/Thursday/Friday mornings. We recommend that the young fours enroll in the Monday/ Wednesday/Friday class. School is in session from September through May. The preschool follows the same general schedule for holidays as the Fairfax County public schools unless a specific exception is scheduled by the director and a notice is given to the parents.
