With the health and well-being of our students, employees, and community remaining a top priority, Hollin Hall will be closed until Fairfax County says it is safe to reopen. Please email the school with any questions or inquiries. Thank you to all of our families and we hope to see you soon.


Welcome to A Child's Place

at Hollin Hall in Alexandria


"Childhood is a time of wonder." is a quote from Mildred W. Frazer, the founder of the center.

Located in the quiet neighborhood of Hollin Hall, just north of George Washington’s Mount Vernon estate, A Child’s Place at Hollin Hall has been serving the needs of children in the local community for over 25 years.  We are committed to the care and education of children and strive to make our school a welcoming and fun place for them.

A Child’s Place at Hollin Hall takes pride in serving the working families in our area with a full-day, year-round preschool program for students ages 2 – 5.  We provide a morning snack, a hot catered lunch and an afternoon snack, as well as a comprehensive curriculum with emphasis on reading, math and science skills.  Additionally, the children receive added enrichment each week through programs in music, art, physical education and Spanish.

For school-aged children, we offer before and after school care (SACC) for students in kindergarten through sixth grade, and a full-time summer camp program which begins as soon as the school year ends.  Students in our SACC program can choose between quiet activities such as homework room or reading, or they may choose to socialize with their friends, either outside on our newly renovated playground or indoors in our fully-equipped game room or arts and crafts room.

We look forward to welcoming new families into our A Child’s Place community for many years to come!

We use Mother Goose Time and Appelbaum Training Institute curriculum which are approved programs by the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAYEC). The curriculum is also supplemented by our creative Preschool staff.
