We provide quality care for children ages 3 months until kindergarten.

Our center offers warm, friendly, professionally-organized, unique child care in the heart of the nation's capital, just steps from Union Station in Washington, D.C. We strive to create a loving community of children, parents, teachers, and friends.

Our staff include talented, highly trained, and academically credentialed teachers who nurture and facilitate integrated learning, following a child's own rhythms. Our responsive teachers understand that children are learning all the time through active and purposeful involvement with people, materials, and ideas.

We use the Creative Curriculum, a play-orientated, child-initiated approach. The Creative Curriculum fosters a dynamic environment to satisfy the young child's natural sense of wonder, sociability, eagerness to explore and problem solve, enthusiasm for quality literature, and aptitude to learn through play.

In addition to classroom experiences, children play on our large, private outdoor playground, go on neighborhood walks, and have the option to take field trips to exciting destinations. We also offer enrichment programs in Spanish, music, and gymnastics.

We see parents and teachers as partners, and value close, regular, and open communication. Our environment respects individuality and differences. We have an open door policy, and parents are welcome to visit anytime.

Fees are for two weeks of care.

Our program provides care and developmental stimulation through play-based academic growth opportunities for young children, ages 2-5 years old, in a small, home-like setting located in the beautiful Brookland/Catholic University neighborhood.

The curriculum is child-initiated which provides opportunities that support and enrich their development, learning and growing independence. The classroom is designed with various centers that include: blocks, dramatic play, art, music/movement, computers, a library, etc. Every aspect of the curriculum is infused with the literary arts which provides the children with the early basic reading skills necessary for a successful transition into elementary school. It is the goal of this program to ensure that every child is a reader before leaving Amazing Grace.

Each program component includes a balance of child and teacher activities designed to actively engage children in learning throughout the day and to promote their creative expression. Assessment is an integral part of curriculum planning. Monitoring and documentation of children's participation within the learning environment is on-going. Children's interests, strengths and needs are used to shape curricular decisions.

Nutritious meals (breakfast, morning snack, lunch and afternoon snack) are included daily as well as regular outdoor activities in our on-site playground and yard.
