U.S. News & World Report recently ranked Kingston Elementary and Old Donation School as the No. 1 elementary and middle schools in Virginia. Old Donation School, which has students in grades two through eight and is the home of the Edward E. Brickell Academy for Advanced Academics & Arts, was also ranked as the No. 2 elementary school in the state.
The Technical and Career Center Preschool program is for children ages 3-5 years old who live in Virginia Beach. The preschool operates under the supervision of two high school teachers at the Center.
Students in 11th and 12th grade who attend the Early Childhood Education class at the Technical and Career Center act as teacher assistants in the preschool. The high school students learn about early childhood education and work in the preschool to implement developmentally appropriate lessons and activities.
Creative Curriculum is used in our preschool. It is play-based and features centers such as dramatic play, science, art, sensory, block building and circle time. We serve a daily snack and go outside for large motor activities on two playgrounds. The Tech Center Preschool is open to the public. Up to twenty children are accepted for each of the two sessions (morning or afternoon).
