Dear Parent:

For 45 years, St. Stephen’s has endeavored to meet the needs of families in the community. Our program for children 1 1/2 through 5 years of age is designed to offer the first safe, caring foundation away from home. Additionally, we provide excellent academic preparation for children as they enter public or private elementary schools. As a leader in Early Childhood Education, we scaffold instruction to guide our children through all the appropriate skill sequences for each age grouping. Our classes present a well planned, creative progression of exciting subject themes. A child beginning with 1 1/2 year old play may grow through three or four differing years of cognitive, speech/language, fine/gross motor skills, social/emotional, and spiritual development.   Fairfax County elementary school teachers have “raved” about the preparation of our “graduates” because they have a well balanced social and academic foundation. We strive to keep activities at all levels very fun, challenging and successful.  Thank you for your interest in St. Stephen’s Preschool. We look forward to having you as one of our families.

Veronica Mayes, Director
