OUR CENTER:A non-profit daycare and before and after-school care center for children, 2.5 years to 12 years of age. Licensed by Fairfax County and The Commonwealth of Virginia, our Center offers a pre-school curriculum of learning through play as well as extended care for school-age children.
OUR COMMITMENT:Since we opened in 1973, our center has been committed to providing high quality education. Through carefully planned play activities and thematic units of study, our programs focus on each child's social, emotional, physical, and intellectual needs in a stimulating yet warm and caring environment.
OUR SUCCESS:Our center maintains an excellent child - teacher ratio of 5:1. We are proud of our low child-teacher ratio, which enables our trained and professional teachers to focus on the individual needs and talents of each child. Westgate Child Center does not discriminate on the basis of race, creed, gender, disability, or national/ethnic origin. We are non-sectarian, non-profit, private, independent, and nondiscriminatory. We believe in equal education, attention and care for all children without regard to race, color, religion, national origin, sex, or disability.
OUR PARENTS:Parent involvement is encouraged and welcome. Preschool teachers prepare monthly lesson plans to keep parents informed of school activities, and to provide insight into what occurs during your child's day. In addition, parents receive weekly reports of their child's progress during the school week. Parent-teacher meetings to address specific student concerns can be arranged as needed. Back to school night, graduation, and regular holiday parties provide opportunities for parents, teachers, and children to socialize after the school day. Parents are welcome to join field trips, share a hobby or life skill, and participate in holiday events.
