Little Folks School began in 1973 when a small group of Georgetown parents organized a playgroup and took turns hosting in their homes. A few years later, the desire to have a consistent location for the children and teachers led the school to take residence in the Dumbarton Methodist Church on O Street NW, before moving to the Georgetown Presbyterian Church at 3115 P Street NW, Little Folks School’s home for the next twenty-five years.
In 2003, Little Folks School moved to a historic townhouse on N Street NW, while we began the process of finding a permanent home. In the fall of 2013, Little Folks School opened its doors in its brand new, permanent home at 3247 Q Street NW. Finally, we had a space to call our own!
With an indoor gym space, called the “Green Room,” a beautiful park one block away, an area for parents to gather for coffee clubs, a full kitchen for cooking projects, and five classrooms tailored just for “little folks,” we are thrilled to have a permanent home in Georgetown!
