Ms. Kashi has been watching my infant son for 3 months now. She is fantastic! My son is always happy at drop off and pick up. Ms. Kashi has done a fantastic job of keeping us posted on his developments and daily activities. You can tell she cares about the children more than the job. There is no better option in my opinion!

Welcome to the Family Day Home "The Kingdom of Children LLC."

My name is Maria and I am a state licensed childcare provider in the commonwealth of Virginia. I can tell you that I'm not only the director and provider of my Family Day home, but also I have a lot of professional experience in early child education that is backed up by a bachelor's degree and more than 19 years of working, first as a director in my own school and then as a director of a Daycare of Essalud in Peru.
I love my profession, and that is the only way for a person to think of dedicating their life to taking care of children and planning on doing an excellent job. Everyday I try to give my best and all of my knowledge at my job, and I am always updating my knowledge so that I can achieve with your children a great emotional, intellectual and psychomotor development.
The curricula I use allows me to develop every skill they must have depending on their age, including the learning of Spanish as a second language.
Something more about me is that I am a member of NAAEYC and I have a free food program for your children that consists of healthy food that follows the USDA Child Care Food Program.
In this Family Day Home we cultivate integrity and good morals so that they can grow up as tolerant, punctual, responsible and sympathetic people.

3737 Seminary Road, Alexandria, VA

Starting at $1800/mo

Our History
Established at Virginia Theological Seminary in 1986, The Butterfly House Preschool (TBH) is a licensed childcare facility in the Commonwealth of Virginia.

Our Program
At The Butterfly House (ages 2 to 6 years) and The Caterpillar Club (ages 6 weeks to 24 months), children interact daily, not only with children their own age, but with older and younger children. A diverse, mixed-age grouping gives every child an opportunity to successfully interact and allows for a gradual transition from one age group to another, thus minimizing anxiety by maintaining caregiver consistency.

Each week, we expose children to language, math, media, geography, science, and social studies, as well as opportunities to participate in drama, music, art, and physical education activities.

We operate our program both indoors and outdoors, as outdoor play is essential to healthy physical and mental development. Children spend a minimum of two hours outdoors every day except for in inclement weather.

The Butterfly House and Caterpillar Club (children under the age of 2) provide a healthy, safe, positive, and nurturing environment for all children. We optimize opportunities for each individual child's growth in these developmental areas:

- Social-Emotional
- Cognitive
- Linguistic
- Physical
- Creative

We encourage diversity in all aspects of our program, invite family participation, and foster positive community relationships.

Our Philosophy
We integrate emergent, child-centered, and play-based curricula, the theories of Loris Malaguzzi, Erik Erikson, Jean Piaget, Lev Vygotsky, Howard Gardner, and Arnold Gesell into a holistic approach to early childhood education. Based on these principles, we offer children a path to self-expression, communication, logical thinking, and problem-solving.

Our Teachers
We employ and train educators who understand children's developmental stages and are committed to providing experiences that encourage optimal learning. Our continuing education allows all staff to meet state licensing requirements, as well as better assisting you and your child's daily needs.

Fantastic place for your children. We have had our children in a couple of daycares over the years. Butterfly House is by far the best. The teachers are creative and have energy from the start of the day until the end of the day. The school is located on the campus of the Seminary, which provides beautiful outdoor space for the kids.
