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.

Our Clubhouse friends enjoyed the warm weather today with a picnic on the playground!

We had a wonderful Winter Open House with Princesses Anna and Elsa of Arendelle this morning! Thank you to everyone who attended and everyone who joined the Compass family today. We are so grateful for you ♥️

They are almost here! Tomorrow, February 22nd, from 10:30-1:00 The Frozen Princesses, Elsa and Anna, will be joining us for our Winter Open House for sing alongs, story time, crafts and photos! We hope to see you there!

What a great day of training and collaboration! Our teachers had an in-depth training on the power of loose parts. The training was based on developmentally appropriate practices and the deep understanding of how children learn and grow. This training will help to serve our teachers in the classroom by providing an understanding of the power that loose parts play in children’s joy and love of learning. We can’t wait for our families to see how we implemented these new materials into our classrooms tomorrow! 😀

Yesterday, Pre-K's Ms. Fayzah and her Art Studio friends invited Loudoun County First Responders to join in decorating 132 allergy-friendly cupcakes, have story time, and celebrate community and love. Happy Valentine's Day, families!

We drew names, voted, and it's decided: welcome to the family, Poppy the gerbil!

Great first day in our STEAM room exploring boxes!
STEAM education is an approach to learning that uses Science, Technology, Engineering, the Arts and Mathematics as access points for guiding student inquiry, dialogue, and critical thinking.
Using STEAM education results in students who take thoughtful risks, engage in experiential learning, persist in problem solving, embrace collaboration, and work through the creative process. These are the innovators, educators, leaders, and learners of the 21st century!
STEAM removes limitations and replaces them with wonder, critique, inquiry, and innovation.
Inquiry, collaboration, and an emphasis on process-based learning are at the heart of the STEAM approach.

In Inventor's Workshop this week, we're learning about home chores during our Family & Friends unit! Our friends love washing the dishes. Scrub-a-dub!

Our Winter Mini Camp is in full swing! Yesterday, Clubhouse friends enjoyed a relaxing trip to Starbucks for hot cocoa, and we all left with warm hands, warm bellies, and warm hearts.

Our teachers are truly the best! We hope they enjoy a holiday Hot Chocolate Bar on this cold and rainy Friday 🎄☕️ We are thankful for all they do! ❤️💚❤️💚

Also, all this month, we are enjoying pajama Fridays. Staff and students are invited to wear pjs tomorrow, Dec 13, Dec 20 and Dec 27 (with outside-appropriate shoes, please)!

Today is National Hand Washing Day.

As the weather changes and flu season gets underway, today is a great chance to reiterate at home why washing our hands is such an important part of each day!

Our Inventor's Workshop Twos class went on their very first field trip last week! Along with Miss Brittany, Miss Katelin, and Miss Erin, students visited the construction site down the road that has been captivating them from behind the playground fence for weeks!

Today, our Art Studio Pre-K students went outside with their clipboards, paper, and pencils, and picked out some trees to sketch! They observed the different parts that make up the tree and their directions and shapes, like the trunk, branches, and leaves.

Teamwork makes the (Preschool) dream work!
