The Child & Family Network Centers operates 8 classrooms in three Alexandria neighborhoods serving 138 four and five year-old children. To qualify for our free preschool program parents must meet certain income eligibility requirements. All classrooms are accredited by the National Association for the Education of Young Children and/or are Virginia Quality star-rated.
We encourage you to call us and talk to one of our staff to help with this process or to provide you with more information about our programs. We’ll walk you through the application process and determine how we can best help you and your child.
