Welcome to the Natural Choice for Early Childhood Education!

PrintFrog Pond is a one-of-a-kind nature program located on two acres in the middle of the urban enclave that is Alexandria, VA. It is an inclusive program teaching and nurturing children with a nature-based, science rich curriculum.

Frog Pond offers a top quality, developmentally appropriate learning environment in an atmosphere of consistent, affectionate care. We focus on character development, outdoor play, and learning about nature in a holistic, nurturing and stimulating environment. Our center promotes growth in all aspects of each young person’s development and we welcome employees, children, and families of all races, religions and creeds.

Frog Pond celebrated the Year of the Frog, as we honored our 15th Year Anniversary, through various events, county recognition, fundraisers, and connections with long-time supporters. 2015 was The Year of the Chicken, during which we learned many lessons from our mini-farm of animal friends. This year, 2016, is a resilience-building year! Dubbed, The Year of the Flood, 2016 is proving to our community once again what makes Frog Pond such a beautiful School Family . See below for more information about “The Great Frog Pond Flood!”

To inquire about our wait list for the Fall 2017-2018 enrollment period, please email info@frogpondkids.org or plan to attend our Fall Open House on September 10th from 9 am – 11 am.


Year-of-the-Flood-finalTHE GREAT FROG POND FLOOD of 2016:

One of Frog Pond’s classrooms was under EMERGENCY REPAIR due to a FLOOD caused by the Fairfax County sewage line during the first week of January.

Through tedious management and community support, we were able to re-open February 2nd, but the financial recovery has taken all year! We are grateful for the local officials who took it upon themselves to negotiate with Fairfax County leaders in order to support the full restoration of the Frog Pond.

Frog Pond thanks the following vendors for their outstanding work to rebuild the classroom: Dwyer Plumbing, Fina Construction, Becker Electric.

Below is a photo collage of the damage.

Frog Pond celebrated its 15-Year Anniversary in October 2014 by gathering current families, alumni, and local community supporters for a gala with local food, lighthearted music, and endless laughter. Check out more information at this video below:


Sliding Snapper!

It’s true! A few years ago, a mama snapping turtle, who laid and buried a batch of eggs on top of Toad Mountain in our big kid play yard, decided to take the express way home.

A class of of pre-schoolers cheered her on as she made her way down the slide. This is just a small sampling of the meaningful teaching moments the children at Frog Pond experience daily (though is certainly the first time we have witnessed a turtle using a slide!)

View the video here! (Be sure to turn your volume up to hear the reaction of the kids.)
