Hello,

We will be moving back to DC from Amman, Jordan this summer. We have two children, 3 and 1 year old. My husband will be working in or near Manassas. Do you have a recommendation for a neighborhood and preschool for my three-year-old? We would like to be somewhere that has a bit of a town center and be close to the school without a ridiculous commute for my husband.

All suggestions are welcome! Thanks so much.

I was just in Amman for work. Without knowing your budget this is kind of hard to answer.

We are hoping to rent a 3-4 bedroom place for around $3000/month.

I can recommend a preschool. Grace United Methodist Church on Wellington Road in Manassas. Well-established and great place for kids.

I know several of my friends and neighbors send (or have sent) their kids there, and have nothing but wonderful things to say about it!

Your problem with this area is that there really is no Town Center so to speak. The closest thing around here is either Old Town Manassas or the Town of Occoquan. Occoquan may be a little too far for you for a job in Manassas. Old Town Manassas has seen some great improvements over the years as far as shops and restaurants go. Not perfect but it's a nice historic old town. Some very nice older homes in the area as well. Or you have several communities nearby.

Grace United Methodist on Wellington Rd.....My brother and his wife sent my nephew there and my niece is there now. Both kids and parents love it!
