Reveille Weekday School has been serving young families since 1966.  Reveille provides a nurturing, play-based learning environment in a half-day early childhood setting for children ages 12 months through Junior Kindergarten.  Our program is a ministry of Reveille United Methodist Church, is licensed by the Virginia Department of Education, and is monitored for quality by VQB5.


Through play, a child learns the concepts of sharing and cooperation. It’s through play that a child can discover more than just the world around them, but also develop relationships with their peers and foster a sense of independence.


The best learning is found in those spontaneous and teachable moments.


At Reveille, we foster your child’s growth with intentional teaching. You will notice that intentional teaching from the books that are displayed to the way a dramatic play area is set up. Teachers create this environment through meaningful lesson plans linked with age level objectives.

Our Mission

Reveille Weekday School is a half-day faith-based early childhood program where the foundations of learning are established and nurtured.  Our state-vetted curriculum focuses on student and teacher interactions as well as developmental learning objectives. Teachers complete informal and formal assessments annually, and portfolios are kept along with anecdotal notes for each child in all toddler and preschool classes. The Reveille Weekday School staff seeks to exemplify God’s love by providing care and by showing respect for each child as a unique and valued person.

The Reveille Weekday School admits students of any race, color, national, and ethnic origin to all the rights, privileges, programs, and activities generally accorded or made available to students at the school. It does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, national and ethnic origin in administration of its educational policies, admissions policies, scholarship and loan programs, and athletic and other school-administered programs.

Our History

Reveille United Methodist Church began ministering to young families through the Reveille Weekday School in 1966.  In the heart of the Near West End, many families walk or bike to school, but we also attract families throughout Richmond and the surrounding counties.  The school enjoys many traditions dating back decades, including our Thanksgiving pie baking event, which started in 1969, and remains a pillar of our fall schedule today.

Reveille Weekday School has a long history of attracting talented teachers and staff, as well as loving families.  Almost three-quarters of our staff have either children or grandchildren (or both) who attended Reveille Weekday School, and some of our current students are second-generation families.  

What Does it Mean to be a Reveille Family?

At Reveille, our goal is to get to know your child, understand them, and appreciate who they are.  Building relationships with families through two-way communication and community building is integral to this effort.

We strive to bring families together to make new friendships and cement old relationships throughout the year, including at the Fall Festival, fall and spring Make It/Take It events, Spirit Nights, and the end of year Pizza Dinner.  We also offer parent educational events and resources to our families.  Our parent association (PAC) plans class and school-wide events to bring students, faculty, and parents together.  

Reveille families have created strong bonds that continue for years to come, and our decades of alumni students and families can speak to our proud legacy.
