Discover The Golden Pond Difference

Golden Pond School is Loudoun County’s premier private preschool and kindergarten, located in Ashburn, Virginia. Our mission is to educate the whole child in a developmentally appropriate manner with brain-based methods through an integrated curriculum. This approach is called the Golden Pond Way and highlights best practices by combining experienced teachers, proven (research-driven) teaching techniques with a joyful, child-centered environment.   As a result of this approach, we have been gratified to see amazing, some would say magical, results in terms of early readers, higher level thinkers and exceptional scores on the Virginia PALs test for rising kindergarteners. A cornerstone of our success is that we specialize in early childhood education – serving children ages 2 through 8. We are an accredited, owner-operated preschool, pre-k and kindergarten, as well as being one of the few non-faith based schools in the area. Golden Pond Families live in Ashburn, Brambleton, Lansdowne, Broadlands & Willowsford and have wonderful testimonials to share.
