For 50 years, Main Street has offered high quality, early childhood education to Fairfax families, most of whom have low incomes. Experienced teachers and expert staff work with over 100 two- to five-year olds annually, using a range of assessments, tools, and developmentally appropriate curricula. With a licensed clinical social worker, mental and behavioral health specialists, a Fairfax County Public Schools special education teacher, and a new sensory discovery room on site, students struggling with chronic stress, behavioral challenges, language and developmental delays get specialized care. All are screened for vision, hearing, and language challenges. Out-of-schooltime programs for 25 elementary-age children keep graduates on track. Parenting workshops, nutrition classes, and special events build social bonds so necessary in today's world. Preparing kids and families for a better future: that's Main Street's main goal.
