Dear parents, welcome to Van Dorn Village Playhouse, a small home-based daycare in Alexandria, VA! I am a mother myself, and now that my child is off to school, I decided to open my own family child care program. I have 5 years of experience and hold a Bachelor's degree in Journalism & Communication. I'm also First-aid and CPR certified.
My child care program uses a play-based teaching philosophy, allowing children to learn while playing. Kids are encouraged to participate in many fun, yet educational activities like learning alphabets, numbers, basic shapes, story time, coloring, circle time, greetings and manners. My daycare has a backyard and is close to the community playground, so your little one will have a plenty of outdoor fun!
My home daycare is open from 6:00 am to 6:00 pm, Monday through Friday. I can provide care for children as young as 3 weeks through 5 years old, including children with special needs. I offer both full-time and part-time care. I also run a peanut and tree-nut free environment and meals are served to the children in my care (lunch and snacks are included).
Van Dorn Village Playhouse is in the Van Dorn Village neighborhood of Franconia, Alexandria (near Franconia Elementary School and the Rose Hill Shopping Center). My home is centrally located since I am right off the Capital Beltway (I-95 / I-495), S Van Dorn St (route 613) and Franconia Rd (route 644). I'm also a few minutes away from the I-395.
Thanks for the interest in my daycare, please send a message to schedule a visit. I am excited to meet your family!
