About Us
Dear parents, welcome to Pohick Estates Children's Place, my home daycare in Lorton, VA! I am the owner and lead teacher, and I’m a mother of 2 myself, with 20 years of experience. I am also CPR and First Aid certified, as well as MAT trained (so I can administer medication to your child if needed.) I run our family child care and preschool program with my assistant, who is also a mother (she has 3 children!), and has almost 10 years of experience. Our goal is to provide your child with a safe and fun early learning environment, where they can learn and play.
Our Home Daycare
We are open from 6 am to 6 pm, Monday through Friday. We offer both full-time and part-time daycare for children between the ages of 6 weeks through 5 years old. We care mostly for children under 6 years old, but if you have an older sibling who attends Gunston Elementary School and can walk from the school bus, I can offer after-school care (I cannot provide transportation of pick-up though). In addition to English, my assistant speaks Spanish and can expose your child to a foreign language if you’d like (however, we are not a bilingual Spanish daycare). We provide breakfast, lunch and 2 snacks to the children in our care (included in the tuition), and offer a peanut-free and treenut-free environment.
Location
Pohick Estates Children's Place is in the Pohick Estates area of Lorton (near Pohick Estates Park), between the Lorton Station and Davison Army Airfield. My home daycare is very conveniently located off Pohick Rd, just a few minutes away from the I-95, and with easy access to Telegraph Rd (route 611) and Richmond Hwy (route 1). Please call or send a message through CareLuLu to schedule a visit, I look forward to meeting you!

My daughter has been going here for about 2.5 years. She has learned a lot and always looks forward going to this provider. She always tries to do activities with the kids. With COVID she has been extra cautious on making sure items and the facility are cleaned thoroughly multiple times a day. Definitely know my daughter is in good hands when I drop her off with this provider.

The providers care so much about the children and it is evident in the attitude of the children and their excitement when they are dropped off. Both of my children received the best care a mother and father could ask for. My children have thrived here and I wholeheartedly recommend these providers.

When I first moved to Lorton, I was mortified of the thought of finding daycare again for my son but then I met this provider. After my first visit I instantly knew that she was the perfect fit because it felt comfortable and my son adapting fairly quick (he calls all the other children his cousins lol). This provider has been extremely accommodating and the kids do fun things all the time. My son will be moving on to Kindergarten this August... more

My son has been going there since he was 6 weeks old and he now is 2 years old. I loved all the great learning and fun activities they do with the children. I like that they celebrate all the holidays and throw great parties. My son has learned a lot there from his colors, counting , writing his name, song, putting his shoes and coat on so much more. He has opened up and involved into a adventurous toddler. The provider has a good assistant, and... more

My daughter, Olivia, loves the teachers and students. She has been attending the school since 2014. The preschool curriculum is steady paced and aligns with Fairfax County preK and kindergarten requirements. At 3 years old Olivia can spell and write her name, learning word recognition, and a host of other skills. The one on one teaching skills and group learning provided by this provider and her staff is outstanding. The parents are active in... more

My daughter enjoys her time and has made lots of friends. I like the teachers and the holiday parties and trips outside of school. They seem to have a wide array of activities. Lunches could be on the healthier side.
