The Ashland Community Preschool started in the early 1970s as a playgroup where families took turns watching the children, much like a “Mom’s Day Out” program. Over time, the “Community Play School” grew into an official community preschool. Today we are an organized Montessori-based preschool licensed with the Commonwealth of Virginia. The Ashland Community Preschool is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit cooperative school run by a parent board. As part of the cooperative, member parents have the chance to witness their child’s development and create those first educational memories together. As active partners in our operations, each of our families plays an important role in creating a successful school.
Nestled in the basement of the historic Hanover Arts & Activities center, The Ashland Community Preschool is committed to our students, our families, and our community. We believe a Montessori-based education should be affordable and accessible. We are not affiliated with any religion, and we welcome children of any race, religion, nationality and ethnic origin. Year after year, we look forward to watching our growing friends graduate onto exciting new journeys while new little adventurers find their way into our sweet school.
