Welcome to the Glory Bees Class Page!
We would like to welcome all of our families to Glory Bee Preschool,
attending both in-person and virtually!
If you have any questions, please contact us
Preschool age children learn best through hands on activities!
Give your child plenty of opportunities to:
- play with play-dough
- build with blocks
- do 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.
Use code HFDJ7 or LHVD6 for Scholastic book orders.
Helpful resources for Pre K parents:
Mrs. Ellen Weidley
Mrs. Ellen earned her Child Development Associate Certification in 2008. She began working at Holy Family in the library in 2006 and began working in the preschool as an assistant in 2007. Mrs. Ellen became a lead teacher in 2016. Mrs. Ellen 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.
Mrs. 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 leaders 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 them to take home for weekends.
Mrs. Ellen and her family have lived in Woodbridge since 2002. She and her husband, John, have two children, both alumni of Holy Family.
Mrs. Judi Peacott
My name is Judi Peacott. I am a native Virginian and have lived in the
Dale City area since 1989. Currently, I serve as the Director of our Glory
Bee Preschool & Extended Day Programs. I have been an Early
Childhood Educator for over 29 years and have been right here at Holy
Family for 23 of those years! I enjoy working with the children,
students and families involved in both programs. In addition, I serve on
the Preschool & Extended Day committees within the Diocese and I am
active in a local-area preschool group as well. I am always looking for
new and creative ideas that will keep our programs current in the latest
educational trends. My husband and I are very active within our parish,
our Knights of Columbus and our community. We enjoy working closely
with the local homeless shelters. When I am not working, I enjoy
reading, crocheting, working in the garden and spending time with our
family and friends.
