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.

The Kiddie Academy difference.

We realize that there are many childcare and daycare options available. Only Kiddie Academy provides the kind of care that incorporates AdvancED accredited curriculum, foreign language, science, technology, music & movement program and focuses on days filled with learning and fun. We are also a nationally networked franchise, which ensures strict standards and a consistent experience for your child.

We know children learn best when engaged in hands-on learning opportunities. Our passionate, rigorously trained lead teachers hold Bachelor degree or higher and are able to respond to the needs of each child based on their individual learning styles. We have incorporated the latest technology in our classrooms in order to make learning even more engaging, fun and meaningful. Supporting programs like Music & More by Kindermusik, child development through music and movement, are also included in our curriculum.

Learning a second language at a young age provides children with a firm foundation for greater educational success. We offer Spanish lessons in our infant to 2-year-old classrooms. Our full-day Spanish Bilingual Program is available for children in the Pre-K classes. Research has shown that it is never too early to begin exposing children to a second language. We have developed this unique preschool program with a coordinated approach to the English curriculum and to everyday, meaningful conversation

Our family-style meals gather children and teachers at the table to share not only nutritional food but also good manners and conversations. We serve hot lunch and two snacks per day.

Our parents choose us not only because of our curriculum but also because of our teachers and our commitment for safety. Our teachers are highly trained, extremely attentive and enormously admired.
