Welcome to Accotink Academy Preschool

Accotink Academy Preschool is proud of our 60-year heritage as a leader in early childhood education.  We are a private, prepratory, preschool and kindergarten in Northern Virginia offering half-day early years education programs that prepare students aged 3 through 6 years for future educational success.  Our program nurtures children intellectually, physically, socially and emotionally, helping them build a solid foundation for success in school and life.

We offer a play-based curriculum, developed in-house, to instill a lifelong love for learning in our preschool and kindergarten students.  Our low student to teacher ratio allows our early education specialists to get to know each child, identify their abilities and help them maximize their potential. 

At Accotink Academy Preschool, we are dedicated to creating a nurturing, stimulating and welcoming environment for all children. Our unique programs incorporate a variety of educational best-practices, while always keeping the child’s best interest in mind and allowing for hands-on, experiential learning. To find out more about us, keep reading or feel free to get in touch.
