Olam Tikvah Preschool (OTPS) is a private, Jewish preschool for children ages two-five (Pre-K). Established in 1973, we have a play-based curriculum designed to encourage independence, enhance social skills, and develop problem solving abilities. Along with colors, shapes, numbers and letters, the children are also introduced to Jewish holidays, family relationships, nutrition, and seasons. The children have a garden where they grow vegetables that they enjoy at snack time. Our lead teachers have an average tenure of seventeen years and our assistant teachers are quickly catching up. We offer this and so much more.

OTPS offers discounts for synagogue members. To learn more about OTPS, or to schedule a tour or obtain an application, please contact the Preschool Director at or (703) 425-1886. We look forward to welcoming you and your child into the OTPS family!

Playground Beautification Fundraiser

OTPS' thriving play-based environment is enhanced by our playground, which is available to and used by the larger Olam Tikvah community. Over time, the equipment was loved and used to the point that it needed to be replaced. Help OTPS reach our goal of replenishing the funds used to purchase our new playground equipment by donating and participate in the creation of our new playground mural.
