Mission Statement

Since the Falls Church City Public Schools opened its Extended Day Care Program in 1975, its mission has been to provide a safe, fun and enriching environment for children and their families.

The staff works to meet the needs of each child and the expectations of every family by providing a place in which the children can flourish and the family can feel confident in the knowledge that their children are safe, secure and happy.

Day Care / ASAP News
Growth, Construction Forces Day Care Changes
The Extended Day Care Program has experienced tremendous enrollment growth for the last few years. Soon the program will face a decrease in usable space as current areas will become additional classrooms to service Mount Daniel's incredible growth. At TJ, Day Care faces the challenge of hiring a sufficient number of staff to manage the large numbers of children in our care. Because of these issues, we anticipate a Wait List may become necessary for the first time in 38 years. In order to determine Day Care capacity at both schools it is necessary to begin limiting our enrollment options and phasing out the part-time enrollment effective July 1, 2014. The Day Care Advisory Board presented the plan to the Falls Church School Board last week. Changes in Day Care Enrollment Options for 2014/15 School Year All new children entering the Mt. Daniel and Thomas Jefferson programs will be offered the Before School option and a Full-Time After School option only. This will include siblings of currently enrolled families who are new to the program next year. If you are currently enrolled for part-time care, you will be able to maintain that option as long as you do not leave the program or move to full-time during the school year. Current part-time families will no longer have the option of adding a 4th day to any week. Current part-time kindergarten children at Mt. Daniel will no longer have the option to vary days of attendance next year because a wait list is expected next school year. You must lock in 3 days and use only those days. If a wait list becomes necessary at TJ, part-time families will no longer have the option to vary days of attendance. You will be asked to choose up to 3 specific days and use only those days. Ample notification will be given before this becomes necessary. If you choose to withdraw from the program and re-enroll at a later time, you will only be able to re-enroll for full-time care. You could also be placed on a wait list. All current families wishing to return in the fall of 2014 (full or part time) must re-enroll by June 30, 2014 (an email will be sent to all current families on April 2, 2014 with re-enrollment instructions). Priority is only given to current families who re-enroll by June 30, 2014. If you respond to the re-enrollment email after June 30, space in the program is not guaranteed. Enrollment opens to new families July 1, 2014.
