The Compass School, Ashburn Virginia

We are a Reggio Emilia inspired early childhood school located in Ashburn, Virginia serving children aged 6 weeks through 12 years old.

Through the Reggio Emilia-inspired approach, children are given the tools and support to steer through their own distinct paths of discovery. Our project-based curriculum encourages children to be active participants in the learning process and to develop the skills needed to explore their ideas, interests, and questions in a meaningful way.

Mission: The mission of The Compass School is to provide a safe and nurturing environment that promotes your child's depth of knowledge while inspiring a life-long love of learning.

Operating as usual

We had a wonderful day while learning the history behind the Reggio-inspired philosophy and preparing our classrooms for the new school year! We can't wait to greet our friends on Tuesday.

This is a friendly reminder that Compass is closed Friday, September 4 for Teacher In-Service and Monday, September 7 in observance of the holiday.

Stay safe and enjoy your long weekend!

What a relevant and creative way to explore emotions in the current state of the world!

After finding a few of these funky looking oakworm caterpillars on our way into school today, we set up an observation station in our plaza so that we can watch them grow together!

Using pom poms, markers, and paper, our Nature Center friends (3s) did a great job working on letter formation!

Check it out: our chickpea plants sprouted!

Our campers had a fun time exercising at their Amazing Athletes demo with Coach Catherine today!

Our Clubhouse campers are adding more sight words to their alphabet everyday!

Facebook, our Pre-K friends need your help! Art Studio is taking a vote on who was most creative in building a barn for their farm animals.

Comments and votes are welcome! We can't wait to hear from you. ☺️

Yesterday's rain couldn't stop our Trailblazers (2s) from their nature hunt!

Our Sound Stage (Pre-K) friends came into possession of some garden-variety caterpillars and ventured outside to create a stimulating environment for them with sticks, leaves, branches, and mulch.

Another great field trip today with our campers! We saw tadpoles, small fish, and dragonflies in the stream. On our walk, we counted 18 birds nests.

Hooray for Water Play!

What can I say? We're missing the beach in Pathfinders!

Best to take this art outside! What a fun way to paint, using spray bottles to make colorful galaxies.

Getting summer-ready with our infants - pass the beach ball!

Studying space in Inventor's Workshop (2s), friends enjoy working on their gross motor skills with their comet toss!

First day of water play with Miss Shannon: success!

Mess-free tie-dye with our infants!

We're animal crazy in Art Studio! Friends sketched their favorite creatures after learning about them in morning meeting.

On the hunt for frogs, koi fish, and turtles during our camp field trip today with Miss Gillian and Miss Brittany!

After reading in a kid's encyclopedia about the human body, Nature Center friends drew their own interpretations of some of the images yesterday!

Do you know how many stars are in the sky? Sounds Stage and Art Studio friends do! (Hint: answers may vary. 9,906 stars are visible from Earth and 250 billion stars are in the Milky Way.)

Blasting off into another great week!

A quick reminder that we are closed Thursday, July 2, in addition to Friday, July 3. Have a safe holiday weekend, Compass families!

Compass siblings on the playground! 💓

What a great idea for nature walks! You could also use artificial flowers.

Clubhouse campers are working on their frisbee-throwing arms on the playground after making their own red, white, blue, and gold versions earlier today!

With Art Studio friends preparing for a mini-unit on camping next week, our pre-k classes thought it sounded like a fun day to have a picnic for lunch!

The wildflower garden on our Todds/Twos playground continues to amaze. However, our Inventor's Workshop friends didn't find the flower they were looking for (a shamrock) so they headed out to the side field with Miss Alisha and Miss Sarah and had more success there!

Try this one at home! Tissue Paper Mosaic with Trailblazers friends.

While looking at some pictures during their All Around the World unit, our twos friends noticed some beautiful mosaic tiles and created their own by tearing up colorful tissue paper and putting it down on contact paper. What a great way to work on their pincer grip!

We had a blast with Little Hands instructor, Miss Jenete, during our live performance on the playground yesterday!

Graduation looks a little bit different this year at Compass as Miss Shannon and Miss Fayzah visited homes to celebrate last weekend, but we're so proud of our rising kindergarteners!

Happy Father's Day, dads! Drop-off your little one(s) on Monday, June 22, 2020 for some sweet breakfast treats and a cup of coffee on us between 7 AM - 9:30 AM. (Please note this is a change from the 4 PM - 6 PM listed on our annual calendar.) Thanks for being awesome!

There's still space on our board for your name! Thank you, everyone, for keeping us strong 💪 #CompassStrong
