OPENINGS: We are full at this time.
About Me:
Welcome to Spring Lake Children's Place, my licensed home daycare and preschool in Fairfax, VA. Im the owner and main caregiver and I have 18 years of child care experience. I hold a Bachelors degree in Economics and Im CPR & First-aid certified. Im also a mother of 2 and I always treat each child in my care as if they were my own. My goal is to provide nurturing care and quality early childhood education, and help parents in the area have peace of mind while they are away from their little one.
Curriculum:
I believe that children learn through play and engaging educational activities, which is why I follow the Play-based learning philosophy. My daily curriculum is full of variety and fun. I engage my students in fun educational activities such as music, arts & crafts, puzzles, letters & numbers, blocks, shapes, and storytime, and also teach them early math and early literacy. They also enjoy coloring and singing along to nursery rhymes. Toddlers learn about the weather, opposites, days of the week, and important manners like saying "please" and "thank you." For infants, there's tummy time to build strength, sing songs, and play with toys that make sounds to engage their senses. I have a wonderful space that's open and clean with plenty of room to explore. Bright carpets and lots of natural sunlight create a cheerful atmosphere. I have wall decor, educational posters, and a library of books for circle time. My daycare also has a spacious nap room where children can rest comfortably and a lot of space for children to play. I also have a fenced playground where we spend our outdoor play-time, weather permitting. In addition to English, I can expose your child to Nepali and Hindi languages upon your request (however, my daycare is not a bilingual program).
Program:
My child care and preschool program is open year-round from 7:30 am to 6:00 pm, Monday through Friday. I offer flexible child care options to accommodate busy parents like you such as full-time care for infants, toddlers, and preschoolers between the age of 2 months and 5 years old. I also have a dog, a well behaved and very friendly German Shepherd! Im part of the USDA food program and I serve breakfast, lunch, snacks, and dinner to all kids attending my program. Due to possible allergies, I run peanut and tree-nut free environment. Before and after school care are also available for older kids, up to 12 years old (my facility is close to Fairhill Elementary School and Marshall Road Elementary school).
Safety:
To prevent the spread of any type of disease caused by germs and viruses, I sanitize tables, surfaces, high chairs, and door knobs throughout the day. I make sure to give the space a thorough deep cleaning every two weeks. I also check the temperature of the kids at drop-off.
Location:
Spring Lake Children's Place is located in the Braxton neighborhood of Fairfax, VA. I am right off Lee Hwy (US-29) and have easy access to Arlington Blvd (US-50) and the I-495, so your daily commute will be convenient. Please send an email or call me to schedule a tour, I would love to meet your family in person!

My daughter has been with this provider for 2 years and my son joined her daycare about 6 mos ago. We love her environment because it involves lots of outdoor time, songs, crafts, & learning. She does a great job training our kids on manners as well!

We absolutely love this provider and her in-home daycare! Prior to choosing her daycare, we contacted a few of her references who had nothing but wonderful things to say about their experiences. We started sending our son there full-time when he was almost 4 months old. My son is now 9 months. You can tell she, and her assistant, truly care about the children and love doing what they do. They have helped my son learn and practice valuable... more

We've been sending my daughter to this daycare for less than a year, starting when she was four months old. When I pick her up she is happy, well fed and well rested every day!

The owner is amazing! My little one is happy about going to her daycare and talks about her and her friends when she is at home. She looks forward to going to "school" everyday.

Our son literally squeals when we pull up to daycare each day! He loves his time there so much. As a parent, it is wonderful to be able to tell that your child's caregiver genuinely loves and cares for them, which is true for us with this caregiver. The facility is clean and well maintained, and she has a great, enclosed outdoor area for the kids to play in.

We absolutely loved having our son in this provider's care! I had to return to work only 8 weeks after having my son, and I felt fine knowing he was with this provider. She really really loves the children she cares for and my son loved her as well. He was never upset when I dropped him off in the mornings. My son was both an early talker and an early walker and I credit a lot of that to this provider- she is constantly playing with them and... more

We had an amazing experience at this child care. She took care of our child for three years and provided a loving, caring, safe and educational environment. My daughter learned to walk, talk, share, eat on her own, and use the potty under this provider's care. I felt good leaving my daughter in her care and enjoyed seeing them interact. After my daughter started montessori school, she still returned to this provider during holidays. I would... more

Great place for very little ones to feel loved, and great for moms who feel guilty about going back to work. This provider always made my two kids feel happy, after I'd pick my daughter up, she'd often want to go back!

We felt incredibly lucky to have discovered this provider after attending another care option in the area. Our child felt very loved and enjoyed every moment. He grew, hit development milestones, and made new friends. He just started fifth grade and still talks about this provider.

This provider has been watching at least one of our two boys for about five years now. We are very happy with the care she gives them and with her business in general. My two kids absolutely adore this provider and look forward to going to her house. This alone makes the whole experience worth it for us.

When looking for childcare for our first child, we really focused on finding somewhere our daughter would feel safe and genuinely cared for. We were so lucky to find this provider. Both of my girls love her and the feeling is mutual. It has made it a lot easier going back to work knowing that my youngest daughter is happy. She lights up every time this provider talks to her.
