About Tender Roots


In 2006 Tender Roots opened our doors in the Lyon Village neighborhood of North Arlington, Virginia as a Reggio Emilia inspired program for young children.

Children are the main initiators of the learning process. Their own innate interests to know and learn inspires the curriculum.

In April 2020, we developed our virtual preschool program in response to the closing of schools due to Covid-19. It was clear that the neighborhood still wanted a community school.

The creation and continuing development of a Reggio Emilia inspired virtual program for preschoolers offers families exposure to the highest regarded form of early childhood education.
