Westover Hills Preschool (WHP) is a ministry of Westover Hills United Methodist Church and, as such, provides outreach services to our community, neighbors, and preschool families. Planning for a preschool program at WHUMC began in 2012 and culminated in hiring a preschool director and developing a Preschool Advisory Board in the fall of 2014. Our preschool facility occupies the lower level of the church building which recently underwent extensive renovations to accommodate the safety and comfort of preschool-aged children, their parents, and instructional staff. We have met all qualifications for religious exempt child day centers through the Virginia Department of Social Services. WHP accepts children regardless of race, gender, religious belief, national origin, cultural heritage, or gender identity/sexual orientation. Children with special needs are welcomed and we will work with parents to individualize and make accommodations that are within our abilities given staffing and space limitations.
Westover Hill Preschool is a place where PLAY HAPPENS! In that spirit, we encourage as many messy, joyous explorations as possible. Children should wear comfortable clothing that can withstand the rigors of typical preschool activities, in other words, nothing special that would be potentially ruined by paint, glue, play dough, mud pies, etc.
