Kindergarten Readiness

Kindergarten Club LogoOur teachers are encouraged personalize activities from our Ascend Curriculum to help children reach important developmental milestones at every age. We take a unique skill-based approach to early education that progressively builds skill sets in nine subjects every month. Important skills are introduced in every program and fine-tuned before kindergarten in our popular Kindergarten Club program. We modify activities from our curriculum to match the needs and interests of each student to ensure that these first educational experiences are engaging and fun!

Kind Child

Kind Child Program LogoKind Child is a favorite program of our parents, children, and staff because it helps us bring kindness into our daily interactions. Kind Child focuses on social and emotional development and is one of the core subjects within our monthly curriculum. Our teachers introduce emotional skills every month and focus on important character traits like a Positive Self-Image, Responsibility, and Respect every two months. Our goal is to uplift the emotional well-being of our students and enrich friendships!

A School That Feels Like Home

Vibrant colors and busy designs are often overstimulating to young children and can lead to behavioral issues. Our preschool center has homelike learning environments to reduce tension and to help our children transition more successfully from home to school. We use natural tones and soft elements like pillows, fabrics, carpets, and soft lighting to create a nurturing environment where children feel at home and thrive.

My son has been at FCA for three years now, from 4 months old to 3.5 years and counting. There is so much to love about this daycare! I initially chose it for the small, segmented nursery rooms; some daycares feel so hectic for the littlest babies, but at FCA they’re in small rooms of their own with on-demand schedules and super talented caretakers. The gradual growth in classroom size and curriculum through toddler, twos, and into preschool is well suited to development, and kept my son challenged but comfortable. The staff at FCA have partnered with us in all aspects of his growth, from learning to walk, to potty training, to academic and social skills, and even through some medical issues he faced as a toddler that required treatment during the school day. The facilities and food are great, and the director and assistant director are super engaged. All of the staff truly care about my kid and it definitely shows. I really can’t say enough great things about what a nurturing, safe, and engaging place FCA is.

The experience that Fredericksburg Childrens Academy has given my son this far leaves my family amazed. He came home singing a Spanish color song on his first day along with explaining to us the importance of being a good friend. Let me not forget to mention with all the Covid precautions they have set in place my family feels very safe & at ease with sending him out during these tough times, the fact he came home and showed us how to correctly wash our own hands reassured us that these procedures are being demonstrated and done daily. Amazing staff, everyone knows his name and seems to always be very pleasant and happy. I could go on and on but to sum it up I give this school 5 stars, the best Preschool around town hands down.

We are blessed to have the staff at FCA to take care of our child! She has already learned to sign “more” and “all done” and she is only one! She is learning more everyday!!
