CURRENT OPENINGS: All ages!
About Me:
Hi, parents! Welcome to Woodlawn Park Kids Playhouse, my home-based daycare and preschool in Alexandria, VA! I am the owner and main caregiver of this nurturing child care and quality early childhood education program. I hold a Bachelor's degree in Political Science and I am CPR & First-aid certified. I’ve been in the child care and teaching industry for over 25 years, so I understand your needs and concerns when it comes to finding safe, affordable and high-quality child care and early education.
Program:
My family child care and preschool program is open year-round from 6:30 am to 6:00 pm, Monday through Friday. I can provide full-time care for infants as young as 4 weeks, as well as toddlers through preschooler up to 5 years old. Lunch and snacks are served to all children in my care (included in the tuition). I strongly believe that children learn through play and therefore, I follow a play-based learning approach. For me, this is the most effective way of helping every child to develop their skills while having fun at the same time.
Location:
Woodlawn Park Kids Playhouse is located near Woodlawn Park in the Mount Vernon area of Alexandria, VA. My child care facility is right off Pole Road and Frye Road, just a minute away from Richmond Hwy (route 1). Thanks for taking the time to read my profile, please call or send an email to schedule a visit. I’d love to meet our family!

This provider is simply wonderful! She is an awesome caregiver. The daycare is always immaculate and organized. She so sweet and patient. My son is so happy to see her each day and I know without a doubt he is well taken care of. Her assistants are equally as caring and attentive. They love children and it shows! This daycare has been such a blessing to me and my husband. As first time parents, we can't ask for a safer place to take our son each... more

My husband and I were recently moved for work, and so we had to leave behind this amazing childcare provider. She has become like a part of our family and was such an amazing blessing for us. Our daughter thrived in her care. Our daughter was excited and happy to see her every day. She helped our baby to work on meeting all of her milestones, stayed in constant communication with us, and made sure to always give us a summary of her day. If I... more

I could not ask for a better place to send my daughter for child care. This provider is warm and nurturing. She maintains a safe, clean, and loving environment for all the children she watches. As a new mama, she has given me a sense of relief, knowing that I can go to work and my baby will be safe and loved. Safety and cleanliness were my two main needs in a daycare, and this provider meets that plus so much more. She is truly a wonderful... more

This provider is so great with our daughter. She is very patient and nurturing and forms genuine attachments with the children in her care. When Meadow is having a hard day, she knows just what to say and do to bring her into the circle and make her feel special. Her space is clean, bright, organized, and roomy. I highly recommend this child care.

My husband and I were worried at first to put our 2 1/2 yr old son into daycare because he has been home with me since he was born. However, we wanted him to get used to being around other kids and having to listen to other adults before starting preschool. I am so glad we found this daycare! This provider takes great care of our son and I can tell he really likes her because he talks about her and asks when he will see her again. He’s also... more

This neighborhood daycare was such a wonderful find! Our older daughter started when she was 3 months old and attended until she turned 3 years old. Our youngest daughter has been here since she was 4 months old and is now 2. The provider and her team are like family to us! Our girls simply adore them and my soon to be kindergartener still loves to go visit when we pick up her little sister. The facility is extremely clean, organized, and well... more

This provider is a wonderful care taker for my child. My son absolutely loves her and her family of helpers. He has been in her care since he was 3 months old and is almost 2 years old now. She's very accomodating to your schedule and for your child's needs. Whether they are sick or not she is always working on broadening their minds with music, dance, art and learning how to interact with other kids. I love her!

My twins have thrived at this daycare and were quickly meeting all their actual milestones despite being born at 31 weeks. They have been attending for 1.5 years and have rarely been sick plus the staff can easily distinguish one identical twin from the other whereas family members struggle. As a first time mom that works full time, I appreciated that this provider was conscientious about letting me have their "first" moments and she did not... more

A MOTHER knows! This provider, over the past 12 years has helped and watched four of my girls; ages 14yrs, 12yrs, 10yrs, and 2yrs old! They still talk about the great time they had with this provider! If you want nurturing, caring and educational facility...look no further! She does not replace, but only temporary fill for when we have to work...it’s as if my own parents are watching my children...there’s no greater feeling than knowing my... more

This is a wonderful caregiver; she is attentive and works with patents so as to make the children in her care as comfortable as possible. Our family appreciates the owner and her staff for the patience, kindness, and sense of diligence they have towards our children. On a personal note I like the small, home-like, atmosphere of the children's area over the more sterile ambience of larger day care centers. Our family has been greatly satisfied... more
