Our History

The Manassas Presbyterian Church Early Learning Center (MPC ELC) opened its doors as the first kindergarten in Prince William County on January 6, 1964.  From the very first day, the ELC opened as an integrated, both ethnically and religiously, school experience.  It is a place for children of all backgrounds to attend.  The opening date was delayed from the traditional September to January to have a unanimous Session approval to open the school as an opportunity for all community members. 

Since then, over fifty years later, MPC ELC has continued to be a valued ministry of the church.  We offer developmentally appropriate half-day programs for young children ages 2 – 5 and an Extended Day option for our older students. We embrace our diversity and strive to recognize and meet the needs of each child.  We have a staff of 13 teachers, a Director and an Office Assistant.  The school is governed by a Board of Directors that meets on a monthly basis.
