The Falls Church-McLean Children’s Center provides a comprehensive, high-quality early childhood program to give young children, regardless of their family’s economic resources, a strong foundation on which to build the rest of their lives. Lewinsville Presbyterian Church is one of 20 faith groups that helped start the Center, which is now in its 52nd year. From its original 15 children, the Center has grown to more than 70 in 2020. Programs are structured to build social skills and a love of learning that equips the children for success in public schools. And because hungry children can’t learn, each child receives a nutritious breakfast, lunch, and midday snacks – teaching healthy eating habits and maintaining a mental focus on learning.
As our community emerges from the COVID-19 pandemic, the Center’s safe and nurturing programs enable parents to confidently return to their jobs, knowing that their children are in a safe, nurturing, and stimulating environment.
