Hi! I was playing with my son in the library today and I think I may have left my phone in there. Did anyone find it? I've emailed and had someone call the preschool office for me. Thanks.
Our preschool will be marching in the Annual Reston Holiday Parade on Friday November 29 (day after thanksgiving).

This is a super fun way for us to get the word out about our amazing school and meet and connect with members of our school family.

Please see the below for more info:

Parade planners ask that ALL children under 5 be secured in strollers or wagons to insure that the parade can keep its pace.

The parade lineup will be staged in Hyatt Park (the grassy area with trees in front of the Hyatt Hotel). Our group is number 16 in the lineup and we are asked to arrive NO LATER than 10:30AM.

Our group will be holding two banners so you can find us easily.

Family and friends visiting from out of town are more than welcome to accompany our preschool families in marching in the parade!

Please contact Kate Tylenda at [email protected] with any parade questions
Does anyone know If this evening's Easter egg hunt is still on?
Tonight!!! Chipotle fundraiser! 🌮🌯🥑 New location this year at the Sunset Hills location, behind Chik Fil A. Stop in anytime between 4-8 PM and mention UCPP’s fundraiser at check out. Dine-in or carry out. Online orders are not valid.

Part day, play based, NAEYC accredited, Christian preschool program for ages 2-5 years of age. We believe that each child deserves an enriching environment to learn and grow.

Our children experience a safe environment that focuses on wholesome development. We are a part day preschool program that serves children ages 2-5 years in 2-, 3- and 4-day/week classes.

On the Bear Cubs last day they journeyed under the sea! Using vibrant colors in the art center and exploring sea creatures in the water table made for an exceptional last day of school!

UCPP loves Ms. Clark! Our families organized a parade of love and kindness for our retiring director, Amelia Clark. It was a big surprise and we all felt a big heart tug as a school family. Ms. Clark will always be remembered by her bright smile, big laugh and her open heart. We have been blessed by her leadership.

And rounding out our incredible week celebrating teachers, three cheers for our multiage teachers, MIss Lacy, MIss Shawna, and Miss Katy! MIss Lacy and MIss Shawna give our five day kiddos a Friday Fun adventure each week and Miss Katy supports all classrooms where she is needed most (how lucky are we??). Being flexible is the name of the game in preschool but these three teachers happily support UCPP in whatever capacity the day brings. We can't thank them enough!

I say AWESOME, you say PRE-K... AWESOME PRE-K, AWESOME PRE-K! Shout out to our phenomenal pre-k teachers, Mrs. Jasper, Miss Priya, Mrs. Lansdell and Miss Jen! What these four teachers do everyday to get children ready for kindergarten is hard to describe or list in a simple post but just one visit to our school and you will want to become a Chipmunk or Monkey immediately! They balance the hard work of play with the future demands of elementary education so perfectly.... a beautiful balance that isn't easy to do.

Thank you @piney_meadow_farm for the most exciting event of our school year! All of our classes were able to spend real quality time with several sweet farm animals! We can’t wait for you to come again. Thank you to our amazing parent coordinators for all your efforts to give us this spectacular gift!

Let's hear it for our TERRIFIC Threes Team! Mr. Nick, Miss Patty, Ms. VK and MIss Kate are as kind as they are brilliant! This age group is full of curiosity and wonder and these teachers know how to cultivate the magic of learning. Three year olds are the middle schoolers of preschool and they experience tremendous growth in all developmental areas, especially social-emotional skills, in this one year. Becoming independent isn't easy but these teachers are here to support the journey!

Toddler Team Shout Out! To kick off Teacher Appreciation Week, let's talk about the extraordinary team we have for our terrific toddlers. These wonderful human beings welcome our youngest students each day with warmth and trust. Our Toddler program is the foundation of our school and so important in the journey of learning! You can't learn if you don't feel safe. Thank you Miss Paula, Miss Sue, Miss Erika and Miss Shelley. The Frogs and Bear Cubs love you so much!😍🥰

Another happy shout out to our phenomenal finance administrator, Ms. Hanney! Micaela keeps all our ducks in a row which is vital for our childcare business.

Happy Administrative Professional day to the one, the only….. Mrs. Martin! Mrs. Martin has worked for UCPP for several years as an exceptional teacher but made a big move to manage our busy office. She is cool, calm and collected in all circumstances and spreads loving kindness throughout our entire school. If you see her today, let her know how much she’s loved! Thank you, Mrs. Martin!

To prepare for the upcoming Earth Day next week, the children helped Miss Ginger start a grass growing project. The toddlers helped poke some holes in the ground to aerate the area, the threes helped lay down new top soil and the fours spread seed and helped set up the fence. We will tend and water until we see the new grass! Stay tuned!

Thank you, Miss Kelly from @walkernaturecenter for the amazing professional development training on improving our outdoor classroom. We have the most fun together as a staff and today was the absolute best! Sunshine and laughter is the best way to work. (The last picture may be of our response to Miss Jen being a bird..)

Today was Artsy Thursday and the paint and glue were flowing! We use the Creative Curriculum every day in our school which focuses on the process of creating art and not the project or end result. Our students have the freedom to be true artists and discern for themselves what art means to their creative eye!

Today was for UCPP and, wow, did we work well together! We have built an amazing School Family that cares for one another and our school. The children helped rake up leaves, pick up sticks, and clear out all the corners of our fantastic playground, with smiles ear to ear. Responsibility grows confidence and self esteem in young children. Miss Ginger could not have finished this big job without you and she loves you all!

Tasty Tuesday was terrific! We learned so much about nutrition and had a delicious fruit pop for snack. The mud kitchen was a busy place today, mixing pasta and lentils into our fantastic mud dishes. What was cooking at your house today?

Happy Spring! Our toddlers made bird nests today just like the hard working birds in our outdoor classroom. How fun to collect string, twigs, and moss and then turn it into something so helpful! Thank you to our fine feathered friends for their example!

About the preschool

The United Christian Parish Preschool provides a loving Christian atmosphere, also known as our School Family, where all children share a variety of age-appropriate experiences and learn to play and work with others. The Preschool operates as a ministry of UCP.

Children obtain a high-quality early childhood experience at UCP. The Preschool is accredited by the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC) and participates in Virginia Quality, the state rating and improvement system.


The preschool serves children ages 2-5 in 2-, 3-, 4- and 5-day/week, half-day classes. Tuition rates are competitive, we have a low staff turnover rate, and professional development for the staff is a high priority. The school follows the research-based Creative Curriculum and uses Conscious Discipline to help children develop socially and emotionally.
