The Virginia Preschool Initiative is a high-quality pre-K program for four-year-old children at APS and is FREE to all eligible students. Children engage in enriching educational experiences, explore learning materials and new ideas, and build their skills as they prepare to enter kindergarten. The pre-K curriculum is research-based, fosters the development of literacy and math skills, and builds social-emotional foundations for lifetime learning. Each class has up to 18 children with a certified teacher and full-time instructional assistant. The program follows the elementary school schedule Monday through Friday.

Simultaneous Spanish-language interpretation will be provided for this event. There will also be Amharic, Arabic, and Mongolian interpreters available at this event.
