Welcome to Pinewood Lake Playhouse, my home-based daycare and preschool in Alexandria. Please contact me through CareLuLu to schedule a visit and get your $100 registration fee waived!
About Me:
I’m the owner and main caregiver of this nurturing, high-quality child care and early childhood education program. I’m a caregiver with 18 years of experience and CPR & First-aid certifications. I’m a mom of 3, so in addition to my professional experience, I also have first-hand experience with my own kids. I love working with children because it’s one of the most fulfilling and rewarding jobs – you get a chance to witness them flourish and develop their full potential. If you choose me, I’ll make sure to treat your kids as if they were my own and provide them with a safe and loving environment. I will care for a maximum of 4 children, so I can give enough attention to each one.
Program:
Pinewood Lake Playhouse is open all throughout the year from 7:00 am to 6:30 pm, Monday through Friday. I provide full-time and part-time care for infants as young as 6 weeks, as well as toddlers and preschoolers up to 5 years old. I also prepare meals for all kids attending my program (lunch and snacks are already included in the tuition) and to avoid any allergies, I run a peanut and tree-nut free environment. My daycare is a play-based learning program, allowing my little students to learn through play and fun, engaging activities. I teach ABCs, colors, and shapes, and make sure that children are well-prepared for school with good manners. We read books and we have arts and crafts as well as make-believe play with dress-up costumes. I have a fenced backyard that I’m converting into a playground, so kids will have outdoor playtime when the weather permits. In addition to English, I also speak Urdu and if you want, I can teach your child this foreign language (however, my daycare is not a bilingual program).
Location:
Pinewood Lake Playhouse is located in the Pinewood Lake neighborhood in the Mt Vernon area of Alexandria, VA. My daycare is near Muddy Hole Farm Park and Mt Vernon Elementary School. I’m only 3 minutes’ away from Richmond Hwy (US-1) and also have easy access to Jeff Todd Way and Telegram Rd (route 611), so your daily commute to work will be convenient.

Our child started daycare at four months old. like every parents, we had a tom of anxiety about it. However, this caregiver sent us pictures the first day and our baby was smiling and happy. It instantly put us at peace. our child has evolved so well with her. She’s always excited and smiling when we do drop offs and pick ups. Her home daycare is clean and safe. We are very happy with the care she provides to our child. 10/10 would recommend her... more

The caregiver is very patient and loving with my kids. They also love to spend time with her and it is very important to me. I really appreciate her dedication and honesty. Overall, I can have peace of mind when at work knowing that my kids are in good hands.

Simply wonderful. She is everything I could have hoped for! She took such good care of both of my girls and became like family to us. She is warm, attentive, loving, playful, and energetic. I have never met a child who doesn’t love her - her joy is infectious and you know the kids are having such a fun time with her and learning so much. She is careful, transparent, honest, and responsible as well, I have never had any concerns about safety. If... more

She was a fantastic provider for my son over this past summer. Our regular daycare had a long-term closure, but as she had worked and trained under our regular provider, she put the two of us in touch. My son still talks about his wonderful summer with this daycare, and the fun learning experiences they had while he attended. It was a major change for him, but the owner was supportive and did a great job of empowering him to continue to learn... more
