Fauquier Community Child Care has operated almost 30 years here.
Fauquier Community Child Care offers care for the children of essential personnel.

The center operates at Our Saviour Lutheran Church just north of Warrenton at at 6194 Dumfries Road.

The program runs from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. weekdays. All attendees must be pre-registered.

“These are unprecedented times and require unprecedented action,” FCCC Executive Director Melissa German said. “When Governor Northam called on licensed providers to provide care for the children of essential personnel, we knew this fit in our mission and we immediately went to work setting up the program.”

Ms. German thanked the PATH Foundation, Northern Piedmont Community Foundation and individual contributors who have made the program possible.

For almost 30 years FCCC has provided care for local children. FCCC works with the Department of Social Services’ Division of Licensing to ensure that children are cared for in a safe, caring environment. Thoroughly vetted, the staff has training in CPR-First Aid and in emergency medication administration. Each also receives a minimum of 16 hours of annual training on best practices to support and encourage children to grow and thrive in a safe and learning based environment, Ms. German noted.

The center has limited capacity, and FCCC follows the health and safety protocols of the CDC, the Department of Social Services and the Virginia Department of Education.

There are no more than eight children and two staff members per classroom. Social distancing is observed, with health checks for the staff and children occur throughout the day, and rigorous schedule of cleaning and sanitizing in effect.
