About Us


Epworth Day School is a religious-exempt program under Section 63.2-1716 of the Code of Virginia, meeting all code requirements that exempt child care centers must meet, including health and fire inspections, along with code compliance and staff health reports.


The teachers here a Epworth believe that children learn through play. They construct their knowledge by touching, tasting, smelling, watching, listening, thinking and doing. Our child-centered curriculum encourages choice-making, autonomy, and social competence. The exploration of music and movement, science and nature, families and culture, art and drama, language and numbers is integrated into the preschool day. Indoor and outdoor activities are planned with a concern for individual needs and developmental differences.

The children gather together for Chapel to celebrate the joy of living in God’s world. Students of all religious denominations worship together to explore common bonds, create awareness of the needs of others, and develop a relationship with our Creator. We want our children to build a positive self-image; explore their natural sense of wonder; discover their creative spirit; learn problem-solving skills; develop self-control and consideration of others; increase coordination, balance, and body image; and know that learning is fun!

We have an open-door policy at Epworth Day School and encourage you to visit with your child anytime, to observe their classroom activities or participate in special events. Parents are also encouraged to visit with the Director if they have any concerns or issues that need to be addressed. We are fully committed to making your child’s time at Epworth a positive experience and for you to be satisfied with our programs. We believe in open communication and appreciate any feedback or suggestions that will improve or expand our programs.
