About

Established in 2011, the newest of our centers, our Crystal City Child Care facility is conveniently located near the Metro and Pentagon, servicing corporate and military families in the busy Arlington community. This Crystal City child care center was built with numerous glass walls and windows, for an open, spacious feeling. Our classrooms offer enticing toys, arts and crafts, plenty of books and engaging educational activities for children ages 6 weeks to 6 years old. Our Crystal City child care center offers extended hours, an internet camera viewing system in the classrooms, and convenient flexible schedules to meet parents' daycare needs. At Sparkles, our goal is to utilize proven, research-based curriculum resources designed to produce creative, confident thinkers. Using the nationally recognized Creative Curriculum system, we incorporate the latest research and best practices to address the learning needs of infants, toddlers and preschool children by using age-specific objectives for learning and development. These objectives have been identified as strong predictors of school and life success, building traits associated with leadership. All of our centers participate in our S.T.A.R. Curriculum (Successful Teaching for Academic Readiness) for all of the age groups; a thematic based, developmentally appropriate curriculum. We are currently pursuing accreditation from NAEYC, The National Association for the Education of Young Children a national, voluntary accreditation system to set professional standards for early childhood education programs. When you walk into our Crystal City child care location, you will be welcomed by well-trained and caring child care professionals who make learning exciting and fun.
