About

About us
Woodley North Children's House is a nurturing daycare and high-quality early childhood education program in Falls Church, VA! I’m the owner and lead teacher and I have 17 years of experience. I run my daycare and preschool program with my 2 daughters who have 15 years of combined experience. I hold a Bachelor’s Degree in Computer Technology and my assistants have a Bachelor’s Degree in Biology and an Associate’s Degree in Dentistry, respectively. We are CPR and First-aid certified, as well as M.A.T trained, so we can administer medication to children if needed. Our daycare is a place where both parents and children can grow. We are a welcoming, safe, friendly family child care program run in a smoke free environment. We have teachers who come from a background in pediatrics, dentistry, early head-start and more!
Curriculum
We follow the Play-based learning philosophy, allowing children to learn through play. We offer a variety of learning activities for young children, from dancing to singing, arts, building blocks, learning how to brush teeth and much more! We also offer extra-curricular activities focusing on sports and physical activity (such as yoga) and life skills, such as gardening and manners. Our child care and preschool program recently received a grant from the PDG B-5 program (Preschool Development Grant Birth to Five). It is a unique recognition grant program designed to strengthen the early childhood education system and promote high quality experiences for our young learners. Receiving this grant is a wonderful recognition that we offer a high quality program, and that we participate in efforts to strengthen the birth to five early childhood care and education system.
Daily Schedule
We generally start off the day by having free play, where children arrive and explore new things each and everyday. This free time is followed by breakfast, circle time (also known as story time), centers of choice (dramatic play, blocks, puzzles, library, etc.), learning centers (writing, arts, math, science), clean up/bathroom time, outdoor play (weather permitting), lunch, rest time, clean up/library, bathroom/hand washing, snack time, story time, outdoor play/indoor/music & movement, and last but not least, free play again!
Program
Our hours of operation are 7:00 am to 6:00 pm, Monday through Friday. We offer full-time care for infants, toddlers and preschoolers (ages between 6 weeks and 5 years old including children with special needs).
Location
Woodley North Children's House is in the Woodley North neighborhood in Falls Church, VA. Our facility is right off Graham Rd, near Tyler Park and Devonshire Park. Your daily commute will be convenient since we're within minutes of all nearby major roads: Arlington Blvd (US-50), Lee Hwy/S Washington St (US-29), and the I-495. Please send us an email or call to schedule a visit, we would love to meet you and your little one!

Our son attended this center from age 1.5 to age 2 -- and he made the most incredible progress thanks to the expert care of this provider and her daughters. He started in the program with very few words, and he is leaving for preschool knowing how to count to 10, many letters, hundreds of words, the ability to follow directions and to participate in songs, dances, and other fun activities. Simply put, we are thrilled with his progress and we... more

We love this daycare. All of the teachers treat our child like their own. It's a wonderful, welcoming place. It's clean, well-organized, and they do a lot of teaching just like a school. It's an absolutely wonderful place. I could not imagine sending him anywhere else.

My son loves going to daycare everyday. His joy is all the evidence I need that he is loved and well cared for. The staff love telling me about his day when I pick him up each day. Their passion for caring for the kids is clear. As a first-time parent, I really appreciate their expertise and ask them many questions. They always have great advice and are happy to share their knowledge. I highly recommend this daycare.

This place has been so great for my daughter. she was 2 when she joined and it s been a year and half of fun times for her. The teachers are very nice and personally invest time to make sure the child is comfortable. They do a lot of fun activities and make it a point to celebrate all events through the year. They fully helped with potty training , make sure she is well fed and the facility is kept very clean. Highly recommend

We love this provider and her family. He is learning lots, having fun and gets lots of hugs. The facility is very clean and safe and has everything he could need including a big backyard.

This provider and her staff are stellar. When it comes to childcare, I know that my husband and my standards are astronomical. This provider meets every single one. The biggest decision for me was not buying a house or getting married but who is going to watch my precious baby. She’s it - hands down. I have researched, visited, reached out to previous references both parents and prior employees of a variety of daycare facilities and her and her... more

We love this daycare- in fact it’s more like a home based preschool. Activities are educational and fun. We love the fact that children are encouraged to brush their teeth after their meals! Our daughter Kasia made a lot of friends, and it’s amazing how quickly she’s learning! One time we read a book and she pointed to shapes saying “mommy look, this is an oval and that’s an octagon”. This provider is trying to enchanté her program with fun... more

My husband and I interviewed about 10 daycare providers before choosing this daycare and I'm very glad we made that decision. The provider and her team are great! They are really caring and sweet people. They truly care for all the kids there. My son had a lot of skin and eating issues. The provider was a huge contributor in helping us resolve the issues. She spent a lot of time with him and watched as his skin reacting throughout the day and... more

We love this provider and the other women at this center! They are flexible, knowledgable, and so helpful. We feel as though they truly care and love our child. She always seems so happy and well taken care of when we pick up/drop off! We would definitely recommend them to anyone looking for quality childcare from a provider who gives individualized attention and meets your child's specific needs.

We are very blessed to have found this provider. She is amazing to our child. He was with a nanny from newborn- 1 year and we were afraid he wouldn’t get use to only English and new friends etc. This provider helped us with this transition and we are still amazed at the rate he learns at her day care. We are so happy we made the switch, and so thankful to have found a day care provider who truly cares and loves children. She is like a mother to... more
