CURRENT OPENINGS: All ages! Next infant opening is anticipated in December 2023. Next opening for children over 2 will be in December 2023!
About Us:
Welcome to Rockland Village Kids Playhouse, our licensed in-home daycare and preschool in Chantilly, VA. Our child care facility is located in the Rockland Village, right off Walney Rd (route 657) and Lee Jackson Memorial Hwy (US-50). We’re also just 5 minutes’ drive away from Sully Rd (route 28). Perfect for your daily commute to work! I’m the owner and main caregiver, and I have 20 years of child care experience. I run my daycare with my assistant who has 5 years of professional experience. We’ve been in the business in our current location for over 11 years, so you can be sure that your child is safe under our care! In addition to our credentials, I hold a Bachelor's Degree in Psychology and History, and we’re both CPR & First-aid certified. We love working with families and kids, so we’re very passionate about what we do: providing quality care and early education.
Philosophy:
We believe a positive environment is like a flight of stairs leading upwards to a richer personality and a confident and responsible life. We also believe that education is the cornerstone to success. This is why we feel that there is no better time to start indulging in a positive, educational environment as in the early years. By providing your child with a loving, stimulating, and fun-filled environment, our goal is to be a stepping stone in your child's path to a successful life. We realize that the early years of a child's life are the most important years. Without a doubt, the years from birth to kindergarten comprise the most extraordinary period of development in a person's lifetime. Young children learn quite a bit through independent exploration, however, they need guidance from the guiding eye of an adult. With this in mind, we strive to immerse your child in an atmosphere that is rich in exploration and learning with the careful guidance of trained individuals. Our bright, colorful, and spacious classroom is designed to encourage exploration and interaction among children. We strive for this exploration to better develop your child's cognitive and social skills. Our planned activities throughout the day are designed to improve your child's motor skills. All these skills will be emphasized in a loving and caring environment. We stand behind the philosophy that children pass through different phases of development. We also believe that the rate of progress varies from child to child. Here at Rockland Village Kids Playhouse, we understand the importance of choosing the perfect home away from home for your child and many thoughts come with this challenging decision. Parents' comfort in their child's second home is one of our most important concerns. We, therefore, strive to provide an atmosphere and learning style that gives working parents peace of mind and confidence that their child is in very capable hands.
Curriculum:
Along with our philosophy, our educational activities vary and are tailored to each student’s needs and developmental stage. Infants: Our infant program supports a child's need to be nurtured and loved by caring teachers in a clean and secure environment. Our focus is on child safety, and maintaining a regular routine for feeding and sleeping. We encourage play, and activities will be customized to suit each infant. We will try our best to keep the infant on a set daily schedule to simplify a parent's life and to have the child make the most of his/her day. Pre-Primary Toddler: Our toddlers are busy little people with many new things to explore. Our aim is to channel their energy to help them play, learn, and mature. Throughout the day we work on a wide range of activities with the primary focus being the five senses: sight, sound, touch, smell, and hearing, in order to fulfill the inquisitive mind of this age group.
Program:
Rockland Village Kids Playhouse is open throughout the year between 7:30 am and 6:00 pm, Mondays to Fridays. We offer full-time for infants as young as 6 weeks, as well as toddlers and preschoolers up to 5 years old. Our daycare is part of the USDA Food Program, and we serve kids with healthy lunch and snacks (both included in the tuition). We can also accommodate school-age kids up to 12 years old and provide before and after-school care. We’re approximately 5 minutes drive away from Brookfield Elementary School and Lees Corner Elementary School. We would love to meet you and your little one in person. Please contact us through CareLuLu to schedule a visit and get your $60 registration fee waived!

As a new mom, and as someone who recently moved to the area, finding this provider has been a godsend. I had never sent my son to daycare before and was also largely unfamiliar with the area. My husband and I toured multiple daycare facilities and immediately felt so at ease and comfortable with her. She has such a warm and capable manner that I had no worries about leaving my six month old in her care. It is so easy to see how much she truly... more

My child is well-attended to by the teachers who are very good at paying attention to her. This daycare is a great place for my 2 year old child to learn a lot of new things. The teacher, who is an expert in teaching, effectively transmits pictures and provides information. I recommend this daycare.

As a first time parent finding the right daycare is not easy. I’m so happy that I was able to find the perfect daycare for my son. They have been so amazing with him. They have been patient and worked hard with him to achieve his milestones. I’m happy I was able to find the right daycare that allows my son to grow and learn every day.

I am very pleased with the outcome of my daughter attending here. Sophia has learned a lot from the time she has been enrolled and I feel confident with her going to kindergarten next year. The teachers treated my daughter as if she was their own, I could see how much the loved and cared about her. I wouldn’t feel comfortable leaving my daughter anywhere else but here.

Our daughter (~2yrs) has been attending this daycare for almost a year now. As first time parents raising a child born during covid we are happy with her care overall and agree with a lot of what is already mentioned in the other positive reviews. That being said, here are some other things that we like: *Provider’s apparent love of and interest in the children cared for *Relatively small number of children (of special significance during... more

We love it here! Our son's previous caregiver retired earlier this year, so naturally we were hopeful yet nervous about finding another great fit for our son and family. This daycare has answered our prayers - they are kind, patient, and have created both a safe and loving environment that really promotes learning and creating experiences. Our son has really thrived since starting earlier this year and we couldn't be happier with his growth... more

My son started coming to this daycare just a few months ago. When he started, he had just turned 1 years old and he’s never been away from his mom and dad because we kept him at home during the pandemic. He needed a lot of time to adjust to the new environment. Almost two weeks have passed and it didn’t seem like he was adjusting but the caregiver didn’t want to give up on my son. She held him and comforted him everyday until he got adjusted.... more

Our son first started daycare here when he was 4 months old to 1 year old. Sadly we are moving away now. This daycare was a wonderful experience for our family. The owner is a wonderful and attentive person. They are very caring and always make sure your child is safe and happy. Our son was always excited to go and would get upset when it was time to go home.

The owner and her sister are wonderful and loving providers. She is very organized and keeps her daycare structured and very clean. We have had our daughter here since she was 3 months; she is almost 6 months now and each morning I drop her off she smiles and seems assured and happy. She is always changed with a clean diaper and her feeding and sleeping is on a consistent routine. The older kids are always greeting me when I pick up my daughter... more

We absolutely love this daycare! The owner and her assistant are every new parent's dream come true. They are extremely kind and understanding. When I first toured this daycare, I had so many questions about everything and felt nervous leaving my son in a new place.

We loved it here. I was new to the area and found it hard know where to look for childcare until I looked on Carelulu. From the beginning the owner kept me informed with how my son was doing being this was his first time in daycare. There were days he didn’t want to me to pick him up. If it wasn’t for another move we’d still be using them.

We love this daycare. She goes above and beyond what you might expect from a daycare. She is impeccably clean, organized, and helpful. From day one, she sits down with you and explains every detail from daily schedules to safety protocols, and continues providing thrice weekly updates through the Tadpole app. She is a new parent's dream.

There is absolutely NO question that choosing these providers as my son’s caretakers was the best decision. My son has blossomed, even after his first day in their care. He currently attends part-time. The mornings I wake him up, he knows it is because he gets to see them and gets SO excited. There are even days I have to entice him during pick up to come home. It means the world to me to know I do not have anything to worry about leaving him in... more

This provider is very warm with the children. She's also very accommodating on days wherein I have to either drop my son off earlier than usual or pick him a little later than usual during to work demands or rush hour traffic. She teaches her students a lot of material which my son always talks about when he gets home from daycare.

This provider presents a warm and loving environment for the children. There isn’t a day that our child isn’t happy to go to daycare. Her facilities are kept clean, children changed on time and lots of activities for the children to enjoy. She takes care of our child as if he was her own and prepares nutritious and delicious meals for them. We could not be happier with our choice.

My daughter has been with this child care facility for about a year, and I could not be more happy with the education and attention that she gets there! This provider really does care for our child like it's her own, and I am amazed at how much she learns everyday!.
