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.
