About Me
Hello Parents! Thank you for your interest in Island Creek Kids Playhouse, my small home daycare in Alexandria, VA. I’m the owner and as a mother of 2, I know that finding a safe environment and a loving caregiver is important. I have 18 years of child care experience and my CPR first-aid certifications. I run a small family child care program, so you can rest assured that your baby will get the attention he or she deserves (I will care for a maximum of 4 children only). In addition to English, I speak fluent Persian (Farsi) and can teach the language to my students (this is not a bilingual or language-immersion daycare, but upon parents’ request, I can indeed speak only Persian to your child).
My Daycare
Island Creek Kids Playhouse is a year-round home daycare and my hours of operation are Monday-Friday, from 7am until 6pm. I offer full time care for children as young as 3 months through 2 years old. I offer snacks to the children in my care, and offer a peanut-free and tree-nut-free daycare. Island Creek Kids Playhouse is off Beulah Street, near Telegraph Rd in the Island Creek neighborhood of Alexandria (between Newington and Franconia, near the Kingstowne Library). For CareLuLu parents, I will waive my $350 registration fee! To learn more, please call or send an email, I look forward to meeting you.

This provider has cared for our 18-month old daughter since she was 6-months old. Our daughter absolutely loves her and has bonded with her, and we can always tell the provider genuinely loves our daughter in return. Our little one is sensitive, and it means a lot to us that she feels safe and happy with this provider. The facility is clean and bright and filled with tons of toys and activities. Our daughter is often sad to leave come pick-up time. This provider is one of the most important people in our daughter’s life during important formative years – and it is a relief to know that our daughter is loved and well-cared for when we must be away from her long hours five days a week.

The provider has been such a blessing to our family. It’s nice to feel completely at peace with where my kids are during the day, and that such a sweet and patient person is taking care of them. She does a great job teaching them their manners, how to play nicely and be respectful of others. She’s also very flexible with pickup/drop off times, which we needed because both me and my husband both work full time...She is absolutely fantastic!

This provider is a great child care provider. She cares for our son very much. All the children at the center play well together. She is able to pay attention to each child's needs. Her facilities have lots of toys and offer a safe environment for children to play.

We love this provider! She has been caring for my son for almost two years now. This provider cares for the children as they were her own and cares for the parents as well. She is patient and kind. We will be very sad to leave when we start preschool.

I highly recommend this provider. She has been watching my son for almost a year. She is caring, experienced, attentive, accommodating, friendly, and an all around wonderful caregiver. Her house is super clean and her rates are very reasonable. I could not imagine having anyone else watch my baby boy!

Our 4-month old has been with this provider for a little over a month. She smiles at this provider. at drop-off and pick-up every day. She loves her so much, and this provider tells us every day how much she loves our baby too. This provider has a very gentle, calm, loving approach that works great for our daughter. In my profession (early childhood educator), I have had the opportunity to visit many childcare establishments and this was the place I felt most comfortable leaving my baby. The house is always immaculate and the children well-behaved. I never worry when my baby girl is in her care :).
