OPENINGS: We have a short-term opening for any age until December 15th, 2024 .
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. Woodley North Children's House also has achieved a Level 5 in Virginia Quality, which represents the highest level of quality. Compared to most family child care and preschool programs, as a Level 5 program, we fulfill the following requirements: In good standing with regulatory or licensing standards, staff members with formal education in childhood education, curriculum aligned with Virginia's Early Learnings Guidelines, high-quality learning environment with many, positive, and academic interactions between children and teachers, and participate in ongoing professional development in accordance with Virginia Quality's Standards.
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 5:30 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!

My daughter absolutely loves coming here every morning. Her face lights up when the owner opens the door. She blossomed since starting and has learned so much. The owner and her team are also always keeping us in the loop on how she does every day. I am so thankful we found such a wonderful daycare!

The owner and her family are an absolute godsend. I consider them part of our family for how well they treat my 20-month old son, and I'm constantly amazed at what he learns while he is there. This daycare is the best thing to happen to us, and my only regret is having not started our son at them sooner than we did. I recommend them to everyone I speak to and would be more than happy to be a reference for anyone considering joining their center.

The owner and her team are very welcoming and supportive. As a new mom, I felt very secure having my daughter in their care. She gave us detailed information of how she was doing each day and we worked through developmental milestones such as rolling, siting up, feet to mouth, etc. I would recommend her to other families in the area.

I absolutely love her and her team! Our child has been in her care since she was four months old and has been thriving. Not only is she advanced in her milestones from all of the work they do during the day, she receives so much love and care every day. we are grateful to have found this daycare and a provider as great as her!

We were only with this caregiver for a short time before we moved out of state but both my and I daughter loved her! Cannot recommend enough, I felt she helped us build a strong foundation for loving out of home care and when my daughter went to a new facility her transition was seamless.

We took advantage of a temporary opening here to cover the gap between returning to work and when our infant son's full-time daycare started. It was our first experience with childcare out of the home and we were extremely apprehensive. Our experience with the owner and her team has been incredible. They are loving and nurturing and keep us posted on any issues they see throughout the day. We feel so fortunate to have found them and are quite... more

My son has felt safe, welcome and loved since day 1. This provider and the other teachers are absolutely amazing. I highly recommend her services as she goes above and beyond. For example, my wife and I both got food poisoning on a Saturday and without any friends or family able to take care of my son while sick. We called this provider as a last resort and she was able to look after him while we both sought medical treatment. This provider... more

We were very fortunate finding this provider and her team to watch our son. Its a stressful decision finding a daycare to take your child however from day 1, this provider made us feel at ease. Our son continues to stay ahead of milestones which I attribute to this provider and team working with him during the day. Every afternoon when we pick him up he is smiling and hugging his teachers not wanting to go. A nice touch this provider does is... more

The provider and her team have been fantastic for our (now) almost two year old. They offer a warm and welcoming environment and are very thoughtful with the activities they provide. Our son is excited when we drop him off and this provider is always willing to discuss how he has been doing or how his day went. We have been thrilled to have him attend and feel lucky we were able to get him enrolled after we moved to the area from out of state.... more

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

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 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”.
