A new nursery school and day care program could be coming to Dranesville United Methodist Church.
The church, which already has a permit for a private school, is seeking to replace the current private school with a nursery school and day care program.
In an application submitted to Fairfax County on June 19, William Bliven, chairman of the church’s board of trustees, said the switch would “more broadly serve the surrounding community.”
The church is proposing no changes to its facilities, grounds or telecommunications facilities. However, 19 spaces for staff and parents — which are available on site — will be needed. The nursery and childcare program would have a maximum enrollment of 99 — 51 seats less than the previously approved private school.
The hours of the church would be tweaked slightly to accommodate working parents. The new program would be open on weekday from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m.
The application was accepted by the county earlier this month. Dates for future county meetings have not yet been docketed.
The church is located at 1089 Liberty Meeting Court in Herndon.
