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

Ms. Ellen began working at Holy Family in the library in 2006 and began working in the preschool as an assistant in 2007.  She earned her Child Development Associate Certification in 2008. Ms. Ellen became a lead teacher in 2016. She finds great joy in working with the Pre-K children each day, helping to guide them as they grow and learn throughout the year. She feels 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 Preschool staff of dedicated professionals.

Ms. Ellen has been a Eucharistic Minister for  Holy Family parish since 2010 and has been very honored to serve in this important ministry. She is also one of the coordinators of the Backpack Snack program which serves elementary and middle school students in our Dale City community. This program provides food to students that rely on school for their meals. Each week, the program provides  breakfast, lunch, and snack items for students to take home for weekend meals.

Ms. Ellen and her family have lived in Woodbridge since 2002. She and her husband, John, have two children, both alumni of Holy Family.
