Hi parents, welcome to Walney Montessori Home, our home-based daycare and Montessori school in Chantilly, VA! My child care facility is located off Walney Rd in Chantilly, near Westfields Blvd and Sully Rd (route 28). I'm a few minutes away from Lee Jackson Memorial Hwy (route 50) and the I-66. Please contact me through CareLuLu, and get your $50 registration fee waived!
About Me
I have 24 years of experience in child care and hold degrees in Psychology and Microbiology, as well as a Montessori diploma from Association Montessori international (AMI). I have the experience of working in various Montessori schools and daycares, and it has been my dream for many years after these wonderful experiences to open up a Montessori program of my own. Now that I have been able to open Walney Montessori Home, I look forward to providing the community with great child care services and creating a secure and academic environment for the children!
Program
Walney Montessori Home is open all year-round from 7:30 am to 5:30 pm, Monday through Friday. We provide full-time infant care as well as toddler care and preschool for children 3 months to 6 years old. We provide healthy morning and afternoon snacks to all kids attending our program, as well as lunch (all included in the tuition). To prevent possible allergies, we maintain a peanut and tree-nut free environment.
Curriculum
Our progressive curriculum is separated in three age groups: Infants through 18 months old: At this age children have primary needs of security, exploration and search for identity. We promote communication through one to one interactions and play experiences that help them grow physically, verbally, cognitively, socially and emotionally. Various interactive activities like story telling, singing songs, music and physical movements. 18 months to 3 years old: Children from 18 months to 3 years experience social interaction and learn about rules and respect of others. At this stage we stress on development of senses as well as on the physical, social and emotional development. Children are introduced to self-correcting exercises of perceptual development and practical life activities of cultural adaptation. 3 to 6 years old: At this stage, we focus on organizational skills as well as the acquisition of basic mathematical concepts and language (enrichment of vocabulary, grammar), geography, history, culture, art and music etc. Thank you for reading, I look forward to meeting you and your family! Joining Walney Montessori Home will provide a unique opportunity for excellent mental, physical and emotional development of your child!

Our daughter was in their care for year an a half, and she has grown so much during that time. The teachers there really do care for the kids like their own and we've enjoyed seeing her learn and grow during her time there.

We are so pleased with this child care program. We were initially anxious in selecting a day care for our daughter, but as soon as we met the owner, our worries were put at ease. The facilities are organized, clean, and intentional. Although I do not see the day-to-day curriculum, our daughter has grown immensely since starting here and in the short communications with staff, I can see that they encourage and support her growth. One of the best... more

The owner and her staff take excellent care of our nearly one-year-old son, Macklan (Mac). They are consistently kind, caring, gentle, and dependable. Mac is excited to get to school in the morning and always happy when we pick him up in the afternoon. It is very clear that they are working hard to help Mac increase his communication skills and emotional regulation while facilitating social interactions among his peers. My wife and I consider... more

Children are doing a lot of activities, learn about nature, letters, numbers and counting. I like that they almost don't watch tv and spend enough time playing outside.

The provider and her team are great! They're very responsive, patient, and so great with our kids. They will text us videos and pictures whenever there are special events. I also appreciate the provider with her flexibility when I've had to run late due to work meetings. I have a peace of mind knowing that my kids are in very capable hands whenever I drop them off. They are always excited to go to "school" and runs inside with barely a look back... more

Brought our two children (2.5 and 1) to this in-home daycare. The owner is very kind, warm, friendly, and the environment feels very home-like for the children. They were very comfortable and played very well with the few other children there. It was a very flexible, safe, fun place to have watch our kids, and great facilities and outdoor fenced play area.

We started my daughter at 4/5 months. It was nerve-wracking as first-time parents. This provider made us feel so comfortable with our infant, she worked with us as we transitioned from breastfeeding to bottles to formula. I felt like I was leaving my baby girl with family. Fast forward 3 years, my daughter is beyond advanced for her age. She knows things and makes cognitive connections far above her biological age. I attribute this to the... more

My daughter attended this montessori full-time around 2 months of age until 2 years old. She learned so much from her daycare provider and assistants. I loved how they taught her how to clean up after herself, to share, dance, sing etc. They were truly engaged in my daughter’s overall development – they helped shape her into this little amazing person. As a new parent, the daycare provider and assistants made me feel at ease while I was at work.... more

My husband and I were very fortunate to find this childcare program! We initially looked a brick and mortar daycare centers but after visiting this provider, we knew she would be a great fit even though our baby wasn't born yet. My baby has been going to her for many months now and I can tell that it has helped establish a routine even at home (napping, eating, playing etc.) I can tell my baby is always happy to be dropped off as she immediately... more

This provider and her staff are very welcoming, so the daycare really feels like a second home for the kids. Everything is always very clean and organized with lots of space for the kids to play. I chose this daycare for the Montessori teaching strategies they use and I am very impressed. I would highly recommend this childcare program.

I was able to be a stay at home mom for 14 months but it came time to get my career going again and I needed a caring and nurturing home for our child. We stumbled upon this provider and went for a visit. My husband and I fell in love with her place within minutes. It took both myself and child to get used to the new daily schedule but now we are all happy as can be. My baby runs away from me when I come to pick her up now because she is having... more
