Preschool age children learn best through hands on activities!

Give your child plenty of opportunities to:

  • play with play-dough
  • build with blocks
  • work on puzzles
  • create art (including painting, drawing with crayons/markers/colored pencils, cutting with scissors, using a glue stick)
  • play outside-running, jumping, climbing

Read to your child at least 15 minutes a day.

Mrs. Ellen Weidley

My husband, John and I, are Pennsylvania natives and after living in a few different states, our family came to Virginia in 2000, settling in Woodbridge in 2002. We have two children, Rachel and John. (Both graduates of Holy Family, Rachel in 2012 and John in 2014.) We enrolled in Holy Family Preschool as soon as we moved to the area and I loved it so much I never left!  I was an active volunteer and then moved to working part time in the school library in 2006. I was thrilled to begin working in the preschool as an assistant in 2007.  I earned my Child Development Associate Certification in 2008, then became a lead teacher in 2016. I  find great joy in working with the Pre-K children each day, helping to guide them as they grow and learn throughout the year. I feel truly blessed to share in the gift of God’s children, being able to share our faith with them, and to work with the wonderful Glory Bee Preschool staff of dedicated professionals. I am eager to partner with each family to make your child’s preschool journey an amazing experience!


Mrs. Tammy Armstrong

Hello Glory Bee Preschool Families! It is a great delight for me to be returning to the Glory Bee Preschool as an Instructional Assistant after a 5 year break. While at home raising our youngest son and Glory Bee, I was blessed to have the opportunity to be working from home doing Social Media for our school.  As a New Jersey native until getting married in 2006, since then, I have lived in Northern Virginia for the last 16 years. Grateful every day for my husband, Rick, and 3 living children, Nate (HFCS Class of 2021), Sage (HFCS 8th Grade) and Silas (Busy Bee w/Mrs. Gomez/Mrs. Haase) and one miscarried baby in Heaven, Hyacinth (2013). Being in the hive with your children and sharing their joy and awe in their day and in our world, is a very special and fun place for me to be. May God bless you and your families as we start this new school year, inviting Christ to walk with us every day.
