About Me
Hi parents, welcome to Braddock Early Learning Bilingual Daycare! Our child care and preschool program is family owned and operated, and we’re located near Braddock Rd and Little River Turnpike, in Alexandria, VA. I hold a Child Development Associates’ degree and have 8 years of experience in child care. I am also CPR and first-aid certified. Our child care hours are between 8 am and 4 pm, Monday through Friday. We provide full-time and part-time daycare for infants as young as 6 months, and for toddlers and preschoolers up to 5 years old (we have an early learning curriculum for preschoolers). For school-aged children (up to 12 years old), I also offer before and after school care (if necessary, I can pick up your child from Weyanoke Elementary School).
Teaching Philosophy
Our home daycare is Montessori-inspired and we can offer a bilingual Spanish program. I believe that young children need to be surrounded by love and attention. As a child care provider, I always make sure that children in my care feel safe, secure, and loved. I take an active approach to learning by offering age-appropriate activities that will children develop cognitively and physically, but also socially and emotionally. I also promote empathy and generosity among my little students, and help them understand and express their feelings.
Curriculum
Our curriculum consists of free play, dramatic play, circle time, art, science, cooking, music, math, and story time. Lessons and themes are prepared weekly and are specific to your child’s age and developmental needs. We have a strong focus on arts and science, which encourage young minds to be creative, experiment, and use their imagination. For infants, we focus on forming a trusting and loving relationship with your child. We’ll thus cuddle, play, and spend quality time with your little one. In their first year, babies grow physically, but most importantly, develop socially, emotionally, and cognitively. Daily activities include music time, story time, and art. When you pick up your baby, you’ll get a daily report for feeding times, naps, and diaper changes. For toddlers, we foster curiosity through sensory activities and arts and crafts, such as painting. Toddlers start to develop independence, so we help them learn how to feed themselves and dress themselves. We also work on hand-eye coordination by playing with blocks and puzzles. For preschoolers, free play is the most important activity as they discover, imagine, and interact with one another to build social and emotional skills. We also foster their love for literature by reading and creating our own stories. For preschoolers, we also work on developing their love and respect for our environment, so we spend a lot of time outdoors. Preschoolers garden and grow flowers and vegetables. The curriculum for preschoolers also include early math, science, reading and writing.
Food and Allergies
At Braddock Early Learning Bilingual Daycare, we provide breakfast, morning snack, lunch, and evening snack. Our daycare is peanut-free and treenut-free and can accommodate children with allergies (I have experience with various allergies, and if your little one follows a vegan or a vegetarian diet, we will do our best to substitute meals.). Most of the food we provide is organic, healthy, and nutritional. I believe it’s important to start healthy eating habits at a very young age (we provide (fresh veggies, fruits and whole grains daily.)
Facilities and Location
Our daycare room is spacious, bright, and colorful. The walls are covered with educational posters like the alphabet, colors, shapes, and numbers as well as children's artwork. The room is designed into early learning centers (drama, toddler material, blocks, and art). Braddock Early Learning Bilingual Daycare is located near Braddock Rd and Little River Turnpike, with very easy access to the I-395 for your daily commute. We’re within walking distance of Weyanoke Elementary School, Holmes Middle School, and Thomas Jefferson High School. Please send a message to learn more or to schedule a visit, I look forward to meeting you!

This might be the BEST child care that has ever existed. I cannot say enough good things about these providers and the entirety of their loving, educational, and fun daycare. The facilities are great - large inclusive play areas and great outdoor space. Their schedule and structure is perfect, with a great mix of educational activities and developmental play. I had my daughter there from 1.5 - 3.5 years and my son started at 3 months and they... more

Our two children thrived during their time at this facility! We moved out of the area, or we’d still be attending. As a parent, it’s wonderful knowing that your kids are well taken care of and loved when you can’t be with them.

We are beyong thankful and grateful that our daughter first experience was this provider's loving home. The care, love and dedication they have for the children in their trust is the closest you can get from a place different then your own home. Flexible, knowledgable, efficient and safe oriented are only some of the pros. From home made healthy meals, thru the necessary academics and end with the relationship my daughter build with them, those... more

Our family was so happy to have our son with these providers. These providers are warm and attentive. They're invested in their clients--they want both children and family to be happy and satisfied. They taught my son basics like songs and abc's but they also taught him to be fascinated by the world around him: bugs, birds, plants. He learned how to watch and observe with these providers.

My son started in this facility around 15mos, he’s will be turning 3 in November. I must say, I’ve truly enjoyed my sons experience under the provider's care. They have a fun interactive curriculum that allows the kids to learn, play and discover. It’s a structured not strict environment, very playful and educational. There are a ton of activities available for the kids from outdoors play (playground and plenty of backyard space), art and craft... more

We started here when my daughter was 18 months when our previous center closed. We loved this place from the moment we walked in and our daughter adores the teachers. They were very helpful as we transitioned and now she is pretty much shoving us out the door every day so she can play with her friends. They have a great outdoor area, lots of toys and lots of books, and I love that they cook with the kids as well. Highly, highly recommend.

This daycare has been a true blessing. We were desperately looking for a new daycare due to a bad experience with our prior one. It only took one meeting with the teachers and we were sold. Our daughter immediately bonded with them and her eyes lit up when she saw all the toys and colors. Every day since then Ana had been excited and happy to go spend the day with these providers. singing, playing, learning, reading, painting and dancing. My... more

This is a wonderful place. My kids felt at home, they were guarded safely, educated well and received whole notorious foods. My little ones became confident and genuine little people, that really know how to behave themselves with great mannerism. None of this would have been possible without the incredible care of this provider and her team. My kids love the place and we remain in touch. If we happen to have more I will instantly enroll them... more

Our son Jackson started daycare when he was 6 months old, and he could not be happier. Everyday, Jackson is excited to get started in his routine with his teacher, to play and learn with his new friends and to enjoy the day. We are so grateful for the love and attention Jack receives at daycare. He is safe and loved and growing here. We recommend it to any family.

Looking for affordable AND high quality daycare in this area is a huge challenge, and I quickly learned that the hard way after I moved here from the Carolinas. After months of desperately looking around, this daycare was recommended to me by a close friend, and it truly turned out to be a hidden gem among pre-school and daycare institutions. Given the area, the tuition is quite reasonable; more importantly, H. is a great asset, beyond a true... more

Absolutely great daycare! Ms. H has my trust 100%. My daughter started at 6 months and left at 4, only to start head start in public school. Now I receive so many compliments of how advance she is compared to her peers. She is interested in learning new concepts and even now references back to Miss H. remembering even the little things she taught her.
