About

CURRENT OPENINGS: All ages!
Thanks for your interest in Beddoo Heights Bilingual Kids Playhouse in Alexandria, VA. We are a licensed home-based daycare and preschool located in the Beddoo Heights neighborhood. My licensed child care facility is off Richmond Hwy (US-1), and just a few minutes drive from Fort Hunt Rd (route 629) and S Kings Hwy (route 633).
About Me
I’m the owner and main caregiver with a decade of professional experience in child care and early childhood education. I hold a Child Development Associates’ Degree, as well as a Bachelor's Degree in Psychology. I also have CPR & First-aid certifications. My goal is to offer quality care in safe, intimate, and loving environment where every child feels at home.
Curriculum
Beddoo Heights Bilingual Kids Playhouse follows the play-based teaching philosophy, with elements of the Montessori approach. I run a bilingual Spanish daycare, so children are exposed to Spanish in addition to English. I can also teach them the Portuguese language upon your request. My curriculum consists of age-appropriate activities and daily learning activities that are both in English and Spanish, which include songs, letters, and colors. I teach all kids basic math, the alphabet, and shapes and help them prepare for kindergarten. My daycare offers lots of creative and educational activities such as music, dance, arts & crafts, story time, and much more. If weather permits, children spend time outside daily, in my backyard playground. I have age-appropriate toys and activity sets for infants and toddlers. My daycare areas are labeled and well-organized, which makes the overall space feel warm and individualized for each child. There are also separate play and nap rooms and lots of space for physical and learning activities.
Program
My family child care and preschool program is open year-round from 7:30 am to 5:30 pm, Monday through Friday. I can provide full-time and part-time care for infants, toddlers, and preschoolers between the age of 9 weeks and 5 years old. For parents who are just looking for occasional child care needs, drop-in care is the best option. We also accept military families who have subsidy (vouchers). Children attending my program are served with peanut and tree-nut free lunch and snacks (both included in the tuition). I can prepare special food for vegetarians and accommodate children with special dietary needs. Please send an email or call to schedule a tour through CareLuLu, I would love to meet your family in person :)

They have been incredible caretakers for our son. They have nurtured him as if he were their own. I'm constantly amazed at the things he has learned while there. Every day he comes home with a new skill or vocabulary word and he clearly has a lot of fun. Our son truly sees them as family and we couldn't ask for a more perfect place.

Our son has been with this caregiver since he was 18 weeks old and we’ve never regretted the decision to put him in her daycare for one minute. He gets a huge smile on his face every time he sees her and will reach out for her as soon as we walk in the door. She and her assistant are incredibly kind, understanding, and truly partners in raising our son. He’s only 10 months now, but I know he will flourish there. What never ceases to amaze me is... more

The owner and her assistants are very caring and loving. We love this home-based daycare. She makes all food from scratch which makes it even more attractive for us. I highly recommend this place.

The caregiver is phenomenal! I’m a first time Mom that was so nervous to put my son in daycare at such a young age. He started daycare at 10 weeks old and she has shown incredible love, care, and nurture since day one. She is very attentive, thoughtful and truly cares about the children at her center. My son has developed so well being around other children and continues to learn every day. She provides meals, teaches them Spanish, takes them... more

We’ve enrolled our son at this daycare a bit over a month ago and so far it’s been great! Our 1-year-old adjusted quite nicely and really enjoys going to this daycare every day. The caregiver is very attentive to our needs and communicative. She quickly learned our son’s habits and preferences. She provides nutritious breakfast, lunch and snacks so I know he is well-fed!

My kid is about to be 6 months so I can’t say too much to the curriculum or teachers part. However, he is happy when I drop him off and when I pick him up. He’s progressing great and she is very good about letting me know how his day was, how much he ate, and any concerns she might have. If you want a place that your kid will feel at home, this is it. I would definitely recommend to anyone with young children.

This provider is excellent. My daughter loves to go to there every day. I can see her progress in academics just a couple of weeks that she attended there. This provider takes time to teach her, now she knows all alphabet and counting. Thank you so much.

We brought our 3-year old to this provider a month ago and we already see growth and development in her learning. This provider's approach is a classical style combined with empathy and care. We were not looking for daycare but a place where our daughter felt at home and comfortable in an environment to grow; this facility is it!

I was hesitant to leave my son in anyone's care in the beginning, as he was my baby and my only to ever go to daycare. This provider made us feel secure in that she would be taking great care of him. She makes us feel like family. I love the bond my son shares with her and the others in the facility. I love how much she's working with him and teaching him. he has so much fun and is so happy to come home and show us what he has learned. Were so... more

This provider and her daycare was such a big blessing for us. Something happened at his last daycare that left him feeling very frightened and scared, where he would throw up at drop off. The previous childcare provider said she couldn't not care for him. We were fortunate to find this provider, and she worked on coming up with creative ways to help him transition, and after a couple of weeks he stopped throwing up and crying at drop off. He... more

This provider started off caring for my neice. My sister recommended her to me. I needed someone to really CARE for my child and not just run a business. This provider has that homey learning environment that was needed. My child still often speaks of her. He needed the interaction and care he received there.

We started our daughter with this provider when she was 8 months old. From our first interaction she made me feel comfortable and addressed all concerns I previously had. I noticed my daughter hitting her developmental milestones so quickly and learning so much more than from her previous provider. I love that when I pick her up, this provider always lets me know how my daughter did that day, what & how much she ate, and how long she slept for.... more

My husband and I decided to put our son in daycare when I finally decided that I was ready to return to work full time. I was so critical of all the providers that we interviewed, and began to feel discouraged. Then we found this facility! On our first interaction she addressed all of my concerns before I could even ask them! Initially he was only going 3 days a week for mulitple reasons; One being to see how my son would respond to her, but he... more

We placed our daughter with this provider when she was 7 months old. Initially 3 days a week, then full time when she turned 1 year old. The location was great for us and they were able to go to the playground everyday and would also walk to the library. They got to eat a great variety of healthy food. When our son was born, we sent him together with his sister, which they both loved. They would come home from daycare always happy, singing new... more
