At Falls Church-McLean Children's Center, children whose parents work as housekeepers in hotels play with children whose parents run hotels. And those with learning delays are caught early, when the chance of making a positive impact is greatest. 80% of the Center's children are at risk of failing in school because of developmental delays, low household income, or unstable home situations. So the Center's team includes an occupational therapist, speech and language therapist, English and Spanish-speaking counselors, special education instructor, and an exceptionally well-trained classroom teaching staff (which includes at least one teacher who is bilingual). In the full-day education program for two- to five-year olds, classroom activities rotate around a theme: visiting the National Geographic Society’s Frog Exhibit in conjunction with reading about frogs, making frog craft projects, and talking about the color green – complete with green playdough. The goal: prepare each child to enter kindergarten with expected age-level skills, ready to succeed in school and life. A modest investment of $105 a week, per child leads to a lifetime of positive results.
