Messiah Child Enrichment Preschool

Does my child need to be potty trained to attend CEP?

Potty training is only required in our 4 year-old classroom.  The remaining classes (3 years and under) do not have a requirement that children be potty trained.

My child is sick, should I call the school to let them know she won’t be there?

A phone call to the office (703-569-3033) is appreciated if your child is out due to an illness or you can message your teacher through the ProCare app.

My child has allergies, will she be safe at CEP?
We are a nut free school and work with parents to accommodate any childhood allergies to the best of our abilities.   In addition, we have several staff members who have received Medication Administration Training (M.A.T.)

When is tuition due and how do I pay?

Tuition is due the first day of each month and not later than the 10th and payments can be made online via our Procare Tuition payment (credit/debit/bank transfer) or checks can be made out to CEP and dropped in the CEP office.

Is there a late fee if tuition not paid by the due date?

Yes, a $10 late fee should be added to payments made after the 10th day of the month.

Does the school close for Fairfax County Public Schools (FCPS) teacher workdays?

NOT ALWAYS, CEP follows FCPS’s calendar for major breaks like Fall Break, Thanksgiving, Winter Break and Spring Break, BUT will remain open on most teacher workdays/religious observances.   For more information, a detailed calendar is distributed at the beginning of each school year. For 2024-2025 school year, CEP will be open a full day on October 3, October 4, October 31, January 29 and April 1.

It’s snowing outside and FCPS is opening 2 hours late, when does CEP open?
When FCPS have either a 1 or 2 hour delay (for any reason), CEP will have a 1 hour delay and will open at 11am on late opening days. If FCPS is closed for the entire day, CEP will be closed, too.

Can I come visit the school and see the classrooms?
YES - we are now open for in-person tours. Please email the director at director@messiahcep.org or call 703.569.3033 in order to schedule a time for a tour.
