Virginia Beach Parks & Recreation offers licensed recreation center-based preschool programs that provide children age 3 - 5 with the opportunity to explore, examine, and discover developmental skills while enabling independent thinking and hands-on activity. Held Monday through Friday, our preschool programs include a healthy snack; lunch will need to be provided by parent or guardian. Participants receive a Virginia Beach Recreation Center membership.

Preschool Buddies at Princess Anne Recreation Center
"Trust is extremely important to our family. As a whole, the staff at Princess Anne have taken such good care of our daughter. We had an opportunity to go to preschool for free, but because of the wonderful experience we have enjoyed, we have chosen to keep our daughter here. The staff always have a smile, are very affectionate, and show true care and dedication."
