Main Church Entrance (109 S. Washington St.)

Washington Street Preschool is located in the center   of historic Old Town Alexandria. The preschool’s gated entrance is at 112 South Columbus Street between Prince and King Streets.

The summer of 2014 brought extensive renovations to our facility. These renovations provide the preschool and church community with state of the art and eco-friendly amenities affording the preschool with more space and opportunities for fellowship and community building.

Our preschool home is in the beautiful and historic Washington Street United Methodist Church built in 1850. Classrooms are bright and spacious and reflect our philosophy and developmental approach to early childhood education. The rooms are fully equipped with the latest and best age-appropriate educational equipment and supplies. The classroom layouts encourage children to learn through play and help children make smooth transitions independently at their own pace as if playing in their own home. Our classrooms support happy, motivated play with many opportunities to explore. Each classroom, as well as the preschool day, is planned in a manner enabling children to develop their own routines naturally.

To visit our preschool during school hours, please contact the preschool office.
