As a mission of Washington Street United Methodist Church, WSUMC Preschool is a non-profit entity.  Although exempt from state licensing mandates due to our religious affiliation, WSUMCP complies with basic health and safety standards established by the Commonwealth of Virginia for programs serving young children, and annually passes health, sanitation and fire safety inspections.  The Virginia Milestones of Child Development and the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC) guidelines are used for curriculum, assessment and professional development. Additionally, Virginia Star Quality Initiative’s high standards for environment and interactions are also followed.
