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.

Operating as usual

After harvesting lots of vegetables from our garden, our two year olds had fun tasting them today! While some loved them, others were not impressed, but it was so rewarding to eat what we grew with our own two hands.

A much-needed water day with our two year olds! When you put the kids in charge of the hose, you know you're in for a good time.

In case anyone was wondering, our vegetable garden is thriving! Toddlers for scale πŸ˜‰ The Pathfinder classroom loves helping their teachers care for all the plants!

A hot Monday makes a perfect day to introduce water play days at Compass this summer! Our infants loved splashing in the baby pools and water tables, and getting sprinkled on with the cool water from the hose was so refreshing.

We kicked off our 2021 summer camp this week with a boardwalk theme. After creating the beach in a jar, making slime, and building a slide out of big blocks, we capped off the week at the Community Pool!

With a surprising amount of friendly wildlife around Compass, we often see critters out when it rains! This week, a curious little box turtle stopped by just in time for our Pathfinders (toddlers) to say hello!

To beat the heat Friday, we held a school-wide playground picnic, where we enjoyed popsicles with friends! We missed having our families join us this year, but we're looking forward to many more upcoming events!

Interested in Community Helpers, our Adventurers (Pre-K) friends have been all about dentists this week! In this activity, "brushing our teeth" was an exciting sensory experience as friends talked about the taste, texture, and smell of the "spicy" toothpaste.

What is educating young children without encountering growth? For Teacher Appreciation Week, our amazing parents have not only been spoiling our staff with meaningful gifts, goodies, and treats, but also offered them symbols of their children's growth in our care with gorgeous flowers and plants today!

It was a super windy day on our playground today, but don't worry, our strong Sound Stage and Clubhouse friends had sturdy footing as they worked together to make sure the shade sail didn't blow away!

We're so excited to get our Earth Day gardens started this week! Allowing our students to take part in the process of planting and nurturing the seeds will help them understand and respect the space.

Looking forward to warmer weather next week when we can plant our vegetable saplings and flowers!

Our LCPS-remote friends in Clubhouse have been using their down time to create a "club car," using this amazing box left over from a recent supply order. When inspiration strikes, you research and execute, just like this creative crew!

After investigating what kinds of animals can be pets in the classroom with the help of the internet and figurines, our preschoolers got up-close-and-personal with one of our school pets, Griffin the Leopard Gecko, to talk about gentle touch as well as different characteristics of the kinds of pets we have.

Working on home living, our Inventor's Workshop (Twos) friends enjoyed practicing a breakfast essential: cracking eggs! Using plastic spring eggs, friends used various utensils, plates, and bowls to try opening their eggs. So many to choose from!

In Sound Stage (JK/K), our friends are proud to display their new mandala crafting station, where they work on patterns and sorting with loose parts to create beautiful pieces of art.

After spending their week pulling and pushing their box "cars" around the room as they continue to enjoy their transportation exploration, our Pathfinders (toddlers) finally got to sit back and take a relaxing ride as their teacher and classmates toted them around the room!

It was an exciting St. Patrick's Day in Sound Stage yesterday when our kindergarteners went on a Leprechaun hunt around the school! After decoding messages throughout the day, they discovered his pot of gold. What a great way to display their literacy and letter work, and band together toward a common goal!
