VIRGINIA PRESCHOOL INITIATIVE

The Virginia Preschool Initiative (VPI) distributes state funds to schools and community-based organizations to provide quality preschool programs for at-risk four-year-olds unserved by the federal Head Start program. The purpose of the grant is to reduce disparities among young children upon formal school entry and to reduce or eliminate those risk factors that lead to early academic failure.

Head Start is a federal program that promotes school readiness for children birth to age five. Head Start is a child-centered, family focused,  comprehensive and community-based program providing high quality services to promote academic, physical, social and emotional development for income-eligible children and their families. 

We offer both Head Start and Virginia Preschool Initiative to 4 year-olds who qualify. Please apply here using our shared application link for both Head Start and VPI. First time applicants must register online. 

Head Start and VPI Apply Here
Please call Laurie Wages, Preschool Coordinator, at (540) 775-8638, if you have any questions about this process.



PEER MODEL PROGRAM

The Peer Model Program allows preschoolers without disabilities the opportunity to participate in the early childhood class and to learn through the experiences in the classroom.

By participating in classroom activities, the peer model serves as a role model to the other students by demonstrating appropriate play, communication and social skills.

The purpose of the Peer Model Program is to:

➢ develop age appropriate peer relationships

➢ promote community relationships during early childhood

➢ provide a learning environment rich in diversity

➢ educate children with disabilities with typically developing peers

➢ develop, within the learning environment and learning within the community, the understanding

that all children have strengths and make contributions to their world

➢ provide a literature-rich, language-based environment that supports the development of children with varied strengths and abilities.


We are no longer accepting applications for the 2022-2023 school year.

Applications and more information for the 2023-2024 school year will be available in February here!
