Welcome to LANK!

Founded in 1965, Lake Anne Nursery Kindergarten was Reston’s first preschool under the “New Town Plan” created by Reston’s founder, Robert E. Simon. For over 50 years, LANK has had a rich tradition of providing an exceptional preschool experience in the Northern Virginia community. Our school has thrived in Reston by providing children with a welcoming, safe and stimulating environment.


LANK continues to stand out as an innovative school that is committed to play-based learning. With a focus on STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Music), children are encouraged to ask questions, problem solve and explore the environment using their senses. Education at LANK is a joyful journey filled with success and validation, while providing the skills children need to succeed in elementary school and beyond. Our hands-on approach is enhanced by the guidance of dedicated, loving and passionate educators. We invite you to learn more about our great school! 

"If you are searching for a preschool that will inspire a love of learning that will last well beyond the preschool years, then I encourage you to visit LANK. - JM Burke
