About

Common Ground Child Care Center, located at 1700 Wainwright Drive in Reston, Virginia near Reston Town Center, is a not-for-profit corporation. The Center was started in 1972 by the Common Ground Foundation, an organization created to provide solutions for the needs of the community of Reston. Although day to day operations are handled by the Director, Common Ground Child Care has an all volunteer Board of Trustees whose members are ultimately responsible for all aspects of the center. They're entrusted with making sure that management decisions are in the best interest of the centers staff and children and that the original ideals under which the center was founded are upheld. The Center's goal is to provide high-quality child care to all segments of the community. We maintain this tradition by respecting and celebrating the diversity of all of our families and the community.

We are thrilled to be part of Common Ground! Both of my children (my daughter, now 6, and my son, now 3) started there as infants and their experience has been great. They are loved by the teachers and learn through creative, engaging play. Teacher turnover is extremely low (most teachers have been there 10-30 years+), so my children know all the teachers and have felt completely comfortable at every classroom transition. The facility itself is great--classroom space is large and the playground is huge--lots of room to run, bike, climb, and imagine! Plus, unlike most other preschools/child care centers, Common Ground believes in field trips, even for toddlers! As working parents, my husband and I appreciate that CG follows the federal government for holidays and closures/delayed openings (unlike most other preschools/day cares in the area, which follow Fairfax County Public School). This policy has saved us both SO many hours of vacation time over the past few years. I highly recommend the center for anyone looking for a loving, kids-first school that exceeds children AND parents needs and expectations.

Both of our children attend Common Ground and have been there since they were 3 months old. The teachers and staff at Common Ground create a wonderful loving environment where they thrive and learn. Our oldest is in the pre-school class and is learning so much, as well as enjoys making special projects, attending field trips and playing with his friends. The love that the teachers have for the children allows working parents to feel comfortable that they’re in a nurturing environment. I would highly recommend this daycare for any families in the Reston/Herndon area.

We looked all over for day cares, and Common Ground is by far the best center in the area. The teachers are excellent and truly love the kids. The average teacher has been with Common Ground over 10 years, and many people have been with the center more than 20 years. I couldn't imagine a better place for our wonderful children to grow.
