Welcome to Shenandoah Preschool

Welcome to Shenandoah Preschool!  We offer half-day (8:30 am-12:00 noon) or, when sufficient enrollment allows, full-day (8:30 am-3:45 pm) programs  for children aged 2-5 years.  We are located in the heart of downtown Lexington, Virginia, owned and housed by Trinity United Methodist Church. We are very lucky to have 5 individual classrooms , allowing for small class size. Research shows that children in smaller classes have greater gains in receptive language, general knowledge, cooperative behavior, and verbal initiative. Greater individual attention from the teacher and smaller groups stimulate complex play and foster problem-solving skills and greater social interaction.

Our primary goal is to offer children a place where they can acquire the essential tools needed to be successful in future learning experiences, including but not limited to: creativity, compassion, cooperation, respect, and self-worth. Our curriculum focuses on social development: speaking, listening, and responding appropriately to adults and peers. Hands-on activities in Math, Science, and Social Studies encourage cooperation, problem-solving, and awareness of the world. We believe that children of preschool age should enjoy coming to school where they play with friends, learn about sharing and taking turns, and participate in group discovery and exploration. We have a very family-friendly environment, which encourages parent involvement and support. We would love to have you take a closer look at our preschool.

Please do not hesitate to call or email me with any questions. Or, better yet, drop by and visit one morning!

Sincerely,

Lisa D’Amelio
Director
