CURRENT OPENINGS: All ages! We also have specific part-time spots for any age on Mondays, Wednesdays and Thursdays.
About Me
Dear parents, welcome to Montgomery Bilingual Little Cottage, my licensed daycare and preschool in Springfield! I believe that every child deserves to grow up in a safe, loving, and nurturing environment. I am a mother of 3 with 17 years of experience working with kids of all ages. I hold a Child Development Associates degree, and I am also CPR and First Aid certified, as well as MAT trained (so I can administer medication to your child if needed.) I know that as a parent, it’s hard to have your little one in child care for most of their day, up to 10 hours a day. Therefore, I created a “Home Away from Home” environment where your child will be able to explore and grow. I will provide high quality child care to your little one and my goal is to help your child develop socially, emotionally, intellectually while in my care.
My Curriculum
My family child care and preschool is a bilingual Spanish program, offering your child the opportunity to learn Spanish at a young age. I have a large fenced yard with toys for lots of outdoor fun and daily activities also include arts and crafts, as well as story time. My curriculum uses Montessori principles and follows the Play-based learning approach to benefit your child's learning. My daycare offers a warm and stimulating environment, it is well furnished and decorated. My walls are painted with murals and decorated with learning posters and artwork.
My Daycare Program
We are open from 7:30 am to 5:00 pm, Monday through Friday. I offer full time daycare for children between the ages of 4 weeks and 5 years old. I also offer before and after school care for school-age children up to 12 years old (I can walk children to the bus stop for Bren Mar Park Elementary School.) My home is smoke free. I provide breakfast, lunch and snack to the children in my care (included in the tuition).
Location
Montgomery Bilingual Little Cottage is in Springfield, VA near Montgomery Street and Edsall Rd. My home is very accessible for your commute to work since I’m right off I-395 and I-495 (and Backlick Rd). Please call or send a message to schedule a visit, I look forward to meeting you and your child!

We knew from the moment we walked in that this was the perfect place for our daughter. The cozy, nurturing environment and attention that they give her make it feel like a home away from home. We can tell that she is happy and well cared for. The educational activities, including bilingual Spanish, and well structured routine have helped our little one thrive and develop. We couldn't ask for a better place for our precious one! Thank you for... more

Our girls have been attending since Late August and we’ve loved every minute of it. Both girls are learning so much Spanish…I personally don’t speak Spanish but my husband does and so does his family and let me tell you my two year old is teaching me all kinds of words and phrases. We are blessed to have found this daycare. I trust them with my babies and that anxiety of leaving them while I go to work has completely disappeared. We can’t say... more

This daycare is truly a home away from home and we are so grateful that we found this daycare. We started our daughter at 5 months and couldn't be happier. The owner and her team really love the children and take such good care of them. My daughter loves going each day and learns so much and is surrounded by love. highly recommend!

We love Miss. R. and her daycare! She took amazing care of our sweet girl at 8 months old and we are so grateful for making the transition to daycare as easy as possible. She is very communicative and treats the children as her own. Highly recommend her for anyone in the area!

Our son loves this day care. He has learned Spanish and eats more at daycare then he does at home. It is hard to leave your child in the hands of others but we feel totally comfortable with these providers, they are like family.

Because of the pandemic, we struggled a lot to make the decision to move our son to a daycare facility. We spent the first year of his life taking advantage of the work from home life to care for him at home. As he grew up, caring for him became difficult because of our demanding jobs and also because his development required more activities and interactions that we were able to provide during working hours. We were also afraid of the social... more

I am so happy I found this provider! We are very pleased with the care our two daughters receive and could not ask for more. The provider and her assistants are always engaged with the children and seem to genuinely enjoy caring for our little ones. My daughter looks forward to "school" as well as seeing her friends and teachers. She frequently comes home with little craft projects which I cherish. HIGHLY HIGHLY recommend!

Our son, Leo, has been there since December 2019. He was just under year when he began going to this daycare full-time. We have had a great experience with the provider and her team. My wife and I think he has learned a lot in the last 6 months, and he is very happy there. They have a great schedule for the kids, and are also very accommodating to each child's needs. For example, our son was still taking two naps a day when he started, and... more

we have sent both of our children to this provider and we LOVE them. The facility is safe and clean, warm and welcoming. They have an amazing backyard space that the kids play on the playground, bunch of bikes and small cars, an outdoor kitchen play set, swings, etc. The staff cares about your child as if they were their own. The transition into daycare is hard and they made it very easy. They are very easy to work with and a hands down best... more

My son loves this provider! He gets to try all sorts of new activities and play outside every day. The teachers are so caring and considerate of the children, and they speak Spanish to help with learning. We are so happy he is taken care of so well.

My daughter has been coming here since she was 9 months old and she loves it. The provider and her helpers are so loving towards all the children. As a parent it's very reassuring when I arrive to pick my daughter up and see her playing with a huge smile in her face. Many times, she doesn't want to leave. I would recommend this daycare to any parent looking for a safe and loving environment for their child.

My husband and I feel so lucky to have our child at this provider's facility. The ladies are absolutely wonderful, our son is so happy there, and we feel confident that he is healthy and safe during the day. The setup is excellent, with a separate room and separate cribs for all the children to take quiet naps based on individual schedules. 5 stars all around!

So glad that we found this Child Care! All of the staff there are so wonderful and caring. We feel very comfortable trusting them to take care of our son. They are extremely flexible and accommodating with our sons individual needs. He loves going there and he’s currently 6 months. They also give daily report cards of the child’s food, sleep and wake time schedule, which is super helpful. Could not speak more highly of them!

My son has been here for 7 months (since he was 4 months old), and we couldn't possibly be happier with the care he has received. From the moment we stepped into this provider's home for a tour, we knew this was the right place for him. It is a beautiful facility with colorful murals decorating the walls, plenty of indoor play space, a separate, quiet room for naps, and a HUGE outdoor play area with lots of toys. Our son is always happy to see... more

We have attended this daycare for six months and have been more than pleased with the care our child receives! The providers are wonderful! Our child happily hugs them upon arrival at the daycare. One provider is always on the floor playing with children while others are preparing food, changing diapers, or assisting with other children. The daycare is always very clean and the decorations and wall murals provide a bright and colorful playing... more

We love this place. I feel that my son is receiving excellent care and love from here. I also appreciate the stimulating educational activities (e.g. singing, arts) that they perform with him including bringing him outside to play whenever weather permits. My son also loves the meals that this provider prepares for him daily.

This Child Care is a God's send. I moved to the DMV area when my child was only 6 months old. I had no family here to help me care for my son. I tried several caregivers in the area, but I never felt fully comfortable leaving my infant with them. Then one day, my neighbor told me about this Child Care! I visited the location, meet with Ms. R, and fell in love with her and the quality care that she provides all of the children. My son started... more
