In 2015, Ox Hill Founder, Chris Smith, began working with The Children’s School (TCS) to move them from a county-owned building into a new permanent custom-built preschool. Chris found a temporary location by rezoning and retrofitting an office building on North Fairfax Drive to accommodate the school’s need for both interior and exterior play area while their permanent space was built.
