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

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. ❤️

The Sleepytime Consultant

Our Sleepytime Consultant, Kendra, is here for you too!

I would love to help parents during this unsettling time, so since my expertise is around young children and sleep, over the next several days, I am going to share some sleep hacks you can initiate tonight to help your days and nights go more smoothly.

First, since we’re all focusing on staying healthy right now, it’s a good time to remember that one of the very best ways to maintain a strong immune system is to get a good night’s sleep.

(There’s a lot of complicated-sounding science behind why this is, but it has to do with “T-cells” being better able to fight infected cells when stress hormones are low. And stress hormones are at their lowest when we are asleep!)

Now, if you’ve got a baby or toddler in the house who isn’t sleeping well, getting that good night’s sleep can obviously be a little trickier -- for you AND your little one.

Sleep Hack #1: Watch The Waking Hours

One of the BIGGEST enemies of sleep – especially for babies and toddlers – is overtiredness… and many parents are surprised to learn just how soon their children get overtired!

Here’s a quick guide to how long your child should be awake between naps during the day:

Newborns (0-12 Weeks): 45 minutes
3-5 Months: 1.5–2 hours
6–8 months: 2–3 hours
9–12 months: 3-4 hours
13 months to 2.5 years: 5–6 hours

If you make sure that your child is put down for naps BEFORE they get overtired, you’ll find that they fall asleep more easily at naptime… AND that they are more relaxed at bedtime, too!!

Please be sure to check your email for UCPPs next steps from Ms. Clark in the coming days. Our thoughts and prayers are with our School Family especially today. As we always say when we have big feelings, “You are safe. Keep breathing. You can handle it.”

Please see Superintendent Brabrand's message to FCPS families and staff regarding Governor Northam's announcement that all Virginia K-12 schools will be closed for the remainder of the academic year.

Due to school and office closures related to COVID-19, the deadline for online registration for the Kindergarten immersion lottery has been extended until further notice. However, the deadline for the first grade immersion lottery status notification online response will remain Thursday, March 19.

Any other adjustments to the lottery process will be posted to the Immersion Registration website once they are known. http://bit.ly/2EvUgIg

Today’s Photo of the day is #name. Writing is a skill that takes lots of strength, hand muscles, coordination and determination. Learning to spell also takes practice and perseverance. Our friend B. makes it look so easy! Just by playing, a child strengthens their hands for these fine motor skills. Keep encouraging digging, throwing, squeezing and having fun because those things will help your child be a skilled writer.

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.
