Child Development Center

First Place Preschool is now HIRING! They are looking for dedicated and experienced teachers who have a love for children to join their staff. They have lead teacher, assistant teacher and substitute positions available. You can email for an application or call 540-224-3360 to schedule a time to stop by and pick one up!


First Preschool serves to care for your child in a safe, loving, fun and comfortable environment for both you and your child. Every week, your preschooler will learn truth from God’s Word through a Bible story, memory verse, and application activities. Each week’s lesson builds upon a foundational truth. Our purpose is to teach children that God made them, that He loves them, and that Jesus wants to be their friend forever!
