United Christian Parish Preschool


Hi! I was playing with my son in the library today and I think I may have left my phone in there. Did anyone find it? I've emailed and had someone call the preschool office for me. Thanks.
Our preschool will be marching in the Annual Reston Holiday Parade on Friday November 29 (day after thanksgiving). This is a super fun way for us to get the word out about our amazing school and meet and connect with members of our school family. Please see the below for more info: Parade planners ask that ALL children under 5 be secured in strollers or wagons to insure that the parade can keep its pace. The parade lineup will be staged in Hyatt Park (the grassy area with trees in front of the Hyatt Hotel). Our group is number 16 in the lineup and we are asked to arrive NO LATER than 10:30AM. Our group will be holding two banners so you can find us easily. Family and friends visiting from out of town are more than welcome to accompany our preschool families in marching in the parade! Please contact Kate Tylenda at [email protected] with any parade questions

Mud Day – World Forum Foundation

Did you know that today is International Mud Day? It’s not too late to make a mud kitchen like we have at preschool! Just grab the hose, some black dirt, and kitchen tools! We’d love to see your creations!!


worldforumfoundation.org Gillian reflected on the lack of mud as Perth is situated on a sandy plain and also the reluctance of the culture to ‘get dirty.’ Bishnu on the other hand had lots of mud but many children did not have enough clothes to be able to get them dirty or soap to wash them. On her return to Australia, ...

Don’t forget all the FREE resources you can get for your home! These resources are in all our classrooms and the children know how to use these tools. Let them show you how!

From Miss Ginger:
This is the last photo I took the day we left school, 63 days ago. I remember thinking about the “Photo of the Day”
Challenge never once thinking I wouldn’t see everyone the next day. Our School Family has worked hard to stay connected these last 9 weeks. As we go into our “last week of school”, I will remember how happy this day was for me.... following the Monkeys to the playground.

Happy Teacher Appreciation Week to our fantastic Four's teachers! All of our Pre-K teachers assure that our kiddos are ready for Kindergarten by building onto the strong, play-based foundation and incorporating the academic structure necessary to be ready for elementary school. The love they have for our oldest preschool students is immeasurable and the connection they have is lifelong. We thank you!

Happy Teacher Appreciation Week to our amazing Three's teachers! We all know why the phrase "Threenager" exists and these teachers calm those three year olds like nobody else. You encourage their natural curiosity, foster their growing independence and give them the boundaries they need to grow. We thank you!

We love our School Family and our School Family loves our teachers!

[05/06/20]   Thanks to our fantastic Family Group Coordinator we had an amazing Teacher Appreciation Parade on FB Live this afternoon. We lined up at our usual carline time and drove the circle....just like old times. The children cheered, held out handmade signs and honked the horn as our teachers watched from their homes! Many happy tears were shed and, once again, we built our connections even stronger! We love our School Family!

Happy Teacher Appreciation Week to our super talented Toddler Team! You build the foundation of trust for our smallest preschoolers and instill in them a love for learning that lasts a lifetime! We thank you!

[05/05/20]   There are many organizations and people looking for help in this difficult moment in our history. #givingtuesdaynow is one way to help make differences in the lives of those in your community. Our parents at UCP preschool have been so generous to us in this difficult time. We could not have weathered the financial burden of this quarantine without them. Our gratitude is beyond measure. Please consider finding a small business that needs your help today. ❤️

About the preschool

The United Christian Parish Preschool provides a loving Christian atmosphere, also known as our School Family, where all children share a variety of age-appropriate experiences and learn to play and work with others. The Preschool operates as a ministry of UCP.

Children obtain a high-quality early childhood experience at UCP. The Preschool is accredited by the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC) and participates in Virginia Quality, the state rating and improvement system.

The preschool serves children ages 2-5 in 2-, 3-, 4- and 5-day/week, half-day classes. Tuition rates are competitive, we have a low staff turnover rate, and professional development for the staff is a high priority. The school follows the research-based Creative Curriculum and uses Conscious Discipline to help children develop socially and emotionally. Chapel experiences, led by staff and members of UCP, help children develop spiritually. Scholarships are available for those families who cannot afford the full cost of preschool tuition.
