American Day School # 1

Preschool in Alexandria, VA 22314

American Day School, located in OldTown Alexandria, was founded in 2007 with the ideal of creating a place where children can obtain an outstanding quality of care and education. To reach this goal, we pay attention to every detail, from recruiting extraordinary personnel, using an excellent curriculum, to having the best equipment and materials possible made available to your child.

We know that children learn best when they are actively engaged. We recognize that children are naturally curious. We know they learn critical science, math, reading and writing concepts through hands-on, sensory-oriented activities. The curriculum used by American Day School gives children the guidance and the freedom to construct their own body of knowledge in ways most meaningful to them.

We believe that all children are talented, capable and special, whether they enjoy music or math, whether they want to be a businessperson or a ballerina. and because we know that children learn best when they are actively engaged, we make available to them lots of activities to involve them in concepts, and to empower them to find the ways to learn. Then we provide plenty of space and time to explore, along with lots of support, love and, of course, fun.

The priority of our teachers is to develop a comfortable relationship with all children in their classrooms. A relationship of trust and caring frees children from focusing on competencies and helps them move on to the next stage of development.
