Target demographics: Young children, ages 2-5 years, from low-income, working families who are qualified by the Fairfax County Child Care and Referral Program, as well as children of the same age from full-fee paying families in the Falls Church-McLean area of northern Virginia

Direct beneficiaries per year: Approximately 90 young children, at least 47 of whom are from low-income families.

Someone who had 3 hours of volunteer time could: Read individually or to a class of 3 to 5-year-old children; lead a class in an art or science project; play a musical instrument for them and describe how it makes sound; Assist with a mailing or special event.

Geographic areas served: Northern Fairfax County, primarily Falls Church City and McLean and the Pimmit Hill neighborhood

Programs: A full-time, year-round early childhood education program for young children, primarily from low-income, working families. Children receive 2 nutritious meals and 2 wholesome snacks each day, and plenty of time outside for exercise.
Our "whole child" curriculum nurtures the language, communication, academic, social, and physical skills children need to be ready to learn in kindergarten.
Through our Successful Start program, we provide speech and language therapy, occupational therapy and behavioral counseling in English or Spanish to help children overcome delays.
Our children also venture beyond the classroom on field trips every week that take them to libraries, museums, zoos and apple orchards where the classroom lessons come to life through the child's senses for a real learning experience.

Mission:
To help all children, regardless of their family's resources, to develop the skills they need for a solid foundation on which to build the rest of their lives.
Results:
More than 85% of the children achieve age-level skills by the time they leave for kindergarten; the remaining 15% have a developmental delay identified and a plan in place to continue to receive support services in kindergarten. All children are fluent in English.
