VPC Preschool is a safe and secure environment for each child. The preschool is a locked facility while children are in the building. All staff, including substitute teachers, are carefully screened and supervised, including a federal background check according to Vienna Presbyterian Church’s Child Protection Policy. In addition, our facilities are inspected annually by the Fairfax County Fire Department and the Virginia Department of Health. We conduct monthly fire drills so that we may be prepared in the event of an actual emergency.
Each class is led by a team consisting of a teacher with at least a four-year degree in Early Childhood Education (or related field) and an adult teaching assistant. Teachers and assistant teachers are trained in First Aid, CPR, PMAT (epi-pens) and SafeTouch (sex abuse recognition).VPC Preschool strives to be a nut-free facility and welcomes children with severe allergies and EpiPens.
All VPC Preschool staff members, including substitute teachers, are vaccinated against COVID-19. We use HEPA air filters in classrooms.
