Early Education is the place where families with young children begin their life-long learning relationship with Alexandria Public Schools. The first years of life are some of the most critical times for cognitive, social, and physical development and we want to support the children and families of our community through this journey. With the support of licensed early childhood professionals and access to research-based resources, Alexandria Early Education programs are here to provide a sound foundation for the early years of life.
Our classrooms include many discovery opportunities and manipulatives that allow for learning experiences different than what students may have at home. Creating rich indoor and outdoor learning environments where students are able to explore and reach their goals is what we strive for. Children - and parents - also benefit from interactions with their peers and learn social skills that prepare them for their future. We are here to support the hundreds of children and families that join us every year.
We are extremely grateful to receive such strong community support. It takes a village to give young children and their families a strong start, and we are happy to partner with you to strengthen our community by supporting families in this way. Your donation provides much-needed equipment and materials to aid in the learning support of students and their families, including additions to our preschool playground, providing academic-rich indoor learning environments, and tools to support the social-emotional health of early learners.
