Choosing the right preschool or pre-kindergarten program for your child can be a daunting task. All Saints Catholic School’s Pre-Kindergarten Program offers a nurturing, faith-based environment designed to equip your child with the knowledge and skills needed to support spiritual growth and academic success.
Serving Northern Virginia families in Manassas, Bristow, Gainesville, Nokesville, Haymarket and surrounding areas, our Pre-Kindergarten Program fosters the development of each child’s faith, knowledge, self-esteem and creativity through developmentally appropriate activities.
Within our Catholic community, students learn to appreciate and act on the values of kindness, love and joy through our virtues program, positive daily interactions, worship and faith-filled activities.

Due to popular demand, All Saints will be offering two full day Pre-Kindergarten classes in the 2018-2019 school year and will no longer be offering the half day, four day option.
We are continuing to closely track the demand for a half day, 5 day class and are looking into the possibility of adding an additional classroom. If the demand is insufficient for a new classroom, it remains a possibility that those interested in the half day experience might be placed in the full day program with the option of being picked up mid-day.
Similarly, we are closely tracking input from applicants regarding interest in before and after school care for Pre-Kindergarten students. Although this is a service that we have only previously offered for students in K-8, we are examining the feasibility of expanding the Extended Day program to include Pre-Kindergarten students.
These decisions are dependent upon the actual return of applications, a process that has already begun and for which there is a deadline of February 23. Thank you for your patience as we consider strategies aimed at meeting the needs of our current school families while adapting to the increased demand in the community for full day classes.
The All Saints Pre-K Program focuses on the following areas of child development:
- Social Development
Children are provided with ongoing opportunities to develop their social skills. Teachers model appropriate problem-solving strategies and encourage the use of words to express thoughts and feelings. Group activities stress the importance of sharing, cooperating and helping, following directions, and negotiating.
- Intellectual Development
Our hands-on approach to learning places emphasis on developing language skills through listening, reading stories and poems, rhyming, dictating stories, phonetic games, dramatic plays, drawing, journaling, and inventive spelling. We incorporate hands-on technology into learning through the use of ActivBoards and iPads. Children develop cognitive and math readiness skills as they are introduced to shapes, colors, sizes, sorting, measurement, counting, and numbers. Children are encouraged to observe, interact, explore and problem-solve.
- Spiritual Development
Religious studies are integrated throughout the day. Children discover God as their Father and Jesus as their friend. The children show their love to God through prayer, songs and finger plays. Children become familiar with various Saints, Bible stories, prayers, virtues, and liturgical seasons through thePre-K Christ Our Life Series.
- Creative Expression
Children are encouraged to express themselves through dramatic play, music and the use of art media. Projects are open-ended and allow for creativity and originality.
- Emotional Development
Children are loved and encouraged with words of praise and positive motivation. We develop a mutually respectful relationship with each child, while creating an environment where children are happy and eager to learn.
All Saints Prekindergarten students have fun while developing academically, spiritually, socially, creatively and emotionally.
- Physical Development
Children are provided with daily opportunities to develop their motor skills. Fine motor skills are fostered through cutting, drawing, painting, manipulatives, puzzles, modeling clay, etc. Large motor skills are developed through daily outdoor play including running, jumping, dancing, balancing, throwing and skipping.
Pre-Kindergarten Daily Schedule
A typical day in an All Saints Pre-Kindergarten class includes the following:
- Meet and greet each child, morning work, prayer and circle time

Here’s just a few comments from our Pre-Kindergarten parents about their Pre-K experience at All Saints:
This was such a great year for our sons. We are so proud of them both! We have seen them develop rapidly in their skills, talents, and knowledge learned at your school. To our amazement, they seem to be accelerated in their subjects and learning process to such a high degree, especially when compared to our own pace and development in the beginnings of our education. This is a true testament to your organization and quality of work that your staff and teachers deliver on a consistent basis.
It is with great confidence that we know our children are in good, caring hands at your institution. For all of this, we are very thankful and grateful to be part of the All Saints community and to have the opportunity for our children to attend school in such a high-quality environment.

I had the good fortune of witnessing your All Saints’ Pre-Kindergarten Christmas Pageant. It was brilliantly conceived and masterfully executed. Our grandchild has essentially won the lottery, by being able to attend All Saints Catholic School and having you as a teacher.
