Holy Comforter Episcopal Kindergarten is a special place. Our program has ample supplies and materials, small class
size and experienced teachers. Children can grow and learn at their own pace, developing the skills and self-esteem necessary
to enter elementary school, prepared and confident.
At Holy Comforter
Episcopal Kindergarten, we believe it is necessary to present children with both teacher-directed and child-initiated activities.
Our Kindergarten curriculum contains objectives that exceed the Virgina Standards of Learning and include reading, phonics,
math, science, writing, social studies, and spelling, along with fully integrated activities in character development, computers,
Spanish, art and music.
Our Kindergarten teachers are experienced
educators. They teach in both group and individual settings to ensure that your child is developing the skills necessary to
enter first grade equipped and eager for the challenges ahead. The children will develop answers on their own using critical
thinking and hands-on materials, while supported by encouraging, loving teachers in a warm, learning rich environment.
Kindergarten registration has begun for the 2017-2018 school year. Parents who are interested
in enrolling their children at Holy Comforter will be offered a tour as well as time to observe in the Kindergarten classroom,
after January 3, 2017. To schedule, contact Sue Gosline at 703-938-3704 or firstname.lastname@example.org. A

"It was woonderrrful, Mommy." That is the answer I received to "How was school today?" from
our kindergartner daughter yesterday when I picked her up. If only it conveyed the joyous inflection in her voice. This
is a daily occurrence as is the fact that I am always thinking, "She wouldn't get this or get to do that in public
school." I could go on and on and on and often wish that I could turn back time and send my older child to this program.
The learning experience that my daughter is receiving this year is astounding from many perspectives
- socially, diversity of the program, individualized focus, academically and nurturance - genuine enrichment, in every sense
of the word. The two full-time teachers are beyond fantastic. Teaching is done at the overall pace of all 16 kids while
providing attention to every child, and making adjustments to both, as necessary, to make sure the kids really understand
In addition to math, reading and history, she learns
art by focusing on a different artist every month, science by doing real life observation and experiments, music by learning
songs, notes and basic music writing, Spanish by applying to her daily classroom environment and computers with hands on experience.
And, she gets to play outside twice a day on the full days - once in an organized fashion to learn playground/social rules
and once for free form fun. She is confidently growing in all ways.
day, there is love, affection and encouragement being showered on the kids while also teaching them to be respectful of each
other and true to themselves. All of this with a wonderfully, age-appropriate sense of humor, to boot. It is better
than Disneyworld. It is no wonder that Mrs. Meyers literally has a cult following of parents of former/current students.
This incredible foundation that my daughter is receiving will serve her well as she joins the
elementary school 1st grade next year, as well as, for the rest of her life. There is no better place for these children to
get a head start on life. Thank you HCEP family. We are eternally grateful.
we struggled withthe question of whether or not to send her to HCEP for Kindergarten - concerns about starting from scratch
with friends, missing out on learning the school rules and routines, cost, driving every day - I could not be any happier
with the decision to send my daughter to this incredible program. It is a decision that gets better every day.
