Preschool Program

Main Street Child Development Center provides quality, affordable childcare to 72 children, ages 2-5 years. Our preschool program is licensed by the Commonwealth of Virginia and accredited by the National Academy of Early Childhood Programs, a division of the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC). We have also been awarded a 4-Star rating in the Virginia Star Quality Initiative program from Smart Beginnings, a service of the Virginia Early Childhood Foundation.

Classrooms

Each of our classes features the teamwork of a lead teacher, a teacher’s associate, and a teacher’s assistant or aide, providing a 1:6 teacher to student ratio, which is well above the national average.

Our teachers design creative, age-appropriate daily lesson plans that correspond with the language, imagination, motor skills, and cognitive strengths and weaknesses of each child. Teachers develop plans that focus on the needs of each individual child, while the activities themselves are part of a broader curriculum within each classroom. Our main goal, however, is the development of social skills, as each classroom utilizes the Al’s Pals – Kids Making Healthy Choices curriculum.  This resiliency-based early childhood curriculum and teacher training program develops personal, social, and emotional skills in young children.

Teachers post lesson plans near the door to the classrooms to share with the parents. In addition, teachers send home the monthly lesson plan with the school’s menu posted on the back.   

Each classroom features a block area; a housekeeping and dramatic play area; an art area; puzzles and manipulative/table toys; a computer area; and a library.
