A weekday preschool program & a ministry of Mount Vernon Baptist Church

As one of the ministries of Mount Vernon Baptist Church, the Mount Vernon Preschool (formerly CEC) serves the community by providing the best in preschool education and by witnessing how Jesus Christ can change lives. Our main purpose is to provide Christian care and to nurture your child cognitively, physically, spiritually, socially and emotionally.

Ministry of Mount Vernon Baptist Church

The Mount Vernon Preschool is owned and operated by Mount Vernon Baptist Church as a nonprofit, faith-based preschool in our community. Mount Vernon Preschool admits students of any race, color, ancestry, national and ethnic origin and religious background.

State Licensed

Mount Vernon Preschool is licensed by the Department of Social Services of the Commonwealth of Virginia and meets or exceeds the minimum standards for childcare. The standards relate to personnel, health requirements, staff training, program staff, administration, general supervision, ratios, physical environment, space, furnishings and safety procedures. We believe that licensing regulations help us to provide loving care for children and peace of mind for parents.
