About

OPENINGS: We are full at this time. Next infant opening is anticipated in August 2024. Next opening for children over 2 will be in August 2024!
Welcome to Town Center Educational Kids Playhouse, our licensed daycare and preschool program in Springfield, VA. We're located near the Springfield Town Center Shopping mall, within easy access to the I-95, Franconia-Springfield Pkwy (route 289) and Franconia Rd (route 644). Perfect for your daily commute!
Program & Curriculum
Lessons are planned to enhance cognitive, creative and physical development. We do our best to foster a warm and inviting learning environment, actively engaging the children in activities that facilitate learning to spell and write, emphasizing the importance of the day's learning activity. Our primary goal is ensuring children are not only prepared for school but also equipped with the skills to follow instructions. We have group times that include something for all the children. We talk with the children and ask open-ended questions. We individualize our program for the children in our care and promote the social and emotional development of our children. We also make sure children are given time to play outside and we plan activities to take advantage of natural surroundings, such as talking about the weather.
Our Philosophy
At Town Center Educational Kids Playhouse, we make you, parents, and your children a part of our family. We nurture them, encourage them and support them. Our program exceeds health and safety standards and we have enhanced the child care environment. We are affectionate and have supported special needs children, and we value cultural differences. We support children's social skills and use positive guidance. We are a Head Start provider and work with military and army families, accepting NACCRRA and GSA subsidies.
Facility & Safety
Our space is brightly decorated with vibrant wall colors and has a spacious open layout. We've dedicated separate areas for various activities including a designated nap room for infants and a large play and eating area. Within this space, there are plenty of engaging materials such as blocks, puzzles, and books alongside larger activity sets specifically designed for toddlers. To add to the happy atmosphere, we've decorated the walls with our comprehensive learning curriculum and added colorful foam mats. Our COVID procedures prioritize cleanliness and hygiene. Throughout the day, we diligently sanitize tables and highchairs. During nap times, our focus shifts to thorough cleaning of the play and lunch areas, ensuring a clean and safe environment for your children. Please call or email to learn more about how we create a nurturing and stimulating environment for your child's growth and development!

This provider is a caring and sweet. she is always calm and patient. my son smiles every time I dropped him off. she loves kids and she is consistent in his care. I feel safe and comfortable taking my son to Sharmin at any given time. she is also flexible with schedule changes and always accommodating. I highly recommend her for any childcare needs.

I’ve entrusted this provider with caring for all three of my children since 2011. She is warm, caring, respectful and very diligent in the activities of her daycare. She takes great time to ensure the children develop in speaking, reading and writing. My oldest was reading at the tender age of four under Sharmin’s tutelage. I highly recommend her as a daycare provider and entrusting her with your little one.

We loved having our son at this day care. It was our first experience with an in home daycare and it exceeded our expectations. The owner and her team are so loving and friendly and you can clearly see that they care about each of the kids in the daycare. My son is very shy and only opens up to a few people but when we drop him off to this daycare he runs happily and hugs the daycare team and waves goodbye to us. He loves it there! I would... more

Wonderful teachers and overall daycare! My son has delayed speech but learned to communicate with her help through repetition and her teachings. We are always surprised at the various skills he learns from daycare and can’t be happier with entrusting her for his care. She even prepared our son to transition from being an only child to a big brother. We were apprehensive about sending our son to daycare before 1.5 years old but love this place so... more

I absolutely LOVE this provider and her team. She has cared for our 3 children and I couldn't ask for a better environment for them. She gives pure love and that is reflected in the way the children interact with each other inside and outside of her care. I LOUDLY recommend her to anyone who values their Childs Nutrition, Safety and genuine connection with other children.

We have been sending our 2 year old daughter to this daycare for the last year and a half. Our daughter loves going there and has learned a lot from the teachers and the other kids. The provider is very caring and treats all the kids like members of her family. She always lets us know when something seems off with our daughter and gives us advice on everything from feeding to cold remedies - this is extremely valuable to us as first time... more

This has been the most wonderful place for our daughter to grow and develop and be cared for over the past 2.5 years, and we're excited to introduce our new baby to the daycare family soon. I moved to the area for a new job with a 3 month old and am so grateful I found this daycare. After a whirlwind trip visiting 8-10 different centers within 2 days, I liked her daycare best and decided to go ahead with it and hope things turned out okay. At... more

This provider is a wonderful caregiver. My two children were with her since 4 months and 8 months, respectively, and she treated them like they were her family. My children were always happy, clean, and well-cared-for. She is very responsive to parent preferences and very flexible with scheduling (I worked weekly variable shifts). She is unfailingly kind, caring, and very lovely to work with. My children looked forward to going to her home. Now... more

This provider is great and her staff is just as lovely as she is. They care for the kids, making sure they have fun, and I do plenty of learning activities to get them ready for preschool or kindergarten. The atmosphere is kind, loving, caring, and above all safe. We couldn’t ask for a better daycare place for our two children. She makes healthy meals for them, teaches them how to say please and thank you along with what the parents teach. Each... more

Where do I begin? As a new mom, I was so worried about leaving my 2 month old son as I went back to work. The very first time we met this provider, I knew he would be in good hands. She has taken care of him as if he were her own son. This provider and her staff are nurturing, loving, and supportive. They are everything I was looking for in a daycare. This provider continually goes out of her way to work around our schedules and remains flexible... more

We had our two girls at this provider's starting when they were 8 months and 3 years old. Before this provider, we had used nannies and a Federal daycare center, and we were a little apprehensive about switching to an at-home daycare.This provider immediately put us at ease with her warm and welcoming personality. She is honest, professional, and it was easy for us to see how much she really cares about all of the kids under her care. She worked... more

Our son attended this daycare for 9 months and we couldn't have been happier. We were constantly surprised by all of the new skills that learned. We never worried about the care he received, because the providers and her assistants are so gentle, loving and positive. Best of all, we could really tell how much our son loved to be there. There were times he couldn't jump out of our arms fast enough to spend time with both the providers and other... more

This is a wonderful daycare. My daughter has been attending since she was three months and I have been so pleased to see the level of care she has recieved. I'm picky, too. I don't let anyone else care for my daughter except me, my husband and the provider! She and her assistants are patient, kind, and yet run the operation with diligent attention to detail. I drop my daughter off every morning completely confident she will be safe and feeling... more

My son started at this daycare when he was just six weeks old. She took care of him until we PCS'd to Camp Lejeune. (11 mo) Due to her care I became advanced. She taught me what tummy time meant, and how to intergrade food into his diet when he turned 7 mo. She was so helpful and amazing with my son. She allowed me to call twice a day for weeks because she knew I was so sad leaving him. She called me every time he did something new and allowed... more

We highly recommended this daycare provider and her team, they have been watching our almost 2 year old since 8 weeks and will watch our next child as well! Our child has really thrived with her and has become a warm, loving and caring little person, and the provider's warm personality and true care for the well being of our child shows true (it's also true that our child doesn't want to leave at the end of the day and always wants to give her... more

My son Eli has been attending this daycare for almost a year. I have always been leery sending Eli to any daycare as my son has many food allergies. This provider had taken great care in taking care of Eli and has made sure that Eli is safe with his allergies. She also works with Eli and I am amazed at all that Elu has learned while under her care. On the weekends Eli even asks when he's returning to daycare! I highly recommend her for your... more

This provider had my son since he was 6weeks. In the past year and half she's been apart of our family. My son loves her he runs to her in the morning. He's 17 months and he knows his abc's and can count to 10. I recommend her to anyone. She care for the kids as her own. I know when my son is with her he's safe and well cared for and that's a warm relief for a parent having to return to work. I appreciate everything she's done for my family.

My son Lukas started attending this Daycare when he was just four months old. My older son Jakob was enrolled in a daycare center which had a very long wait list. Our family’s intent was to keep Lukas with this daycare provider until a slot opened up for him at my older son’s daycare center. However after just a couple of short weeks with this provider, we fell in love with her, her staff, and her daycare. From the very beginning Lukas was... more

This daycare owner and her assistants have done a wonderful job caring for my 2 children over the last 4 years. My kids are so excited to see her each morning and sad to say goodbye in the afternoon. The facilities are separate from the home - the indoor area is warm and welcoming, there are ample toys and a great outdoor play area. She provides nutritious meals that my kids really enjoy. When my older child first started at this daycare... more

It is difficult to find child care that is high quality, affordable and convenient. We are fortunate enough to have found a provider that is all three. Our son went to this daycare for over three years and our daughter has been going for nearly a year. We couldn't be happier with our decision to send our kids to this daycare. The provider has treated our kids as if they were her own. Our son received a solid foundation and was well prepared... more
