Oakdale Woods Children's House is a home-based daycare and preschool in Vienna, VA. The child care facility is right off Edgelea Rd, between Courthouse Rd and Blake Ln (near Oakton High School and Oakton Shopping Center). The daycare is very accessible for commuters since they're close to the I-66 and Chain Bridge Rd (route 123), and a few minutes from the Vienna Metro station.
This family child care and preschool program offers children the unique experience of self-development in a tender atmosphere of understanding, respect, and support. It is a place of nurturing and love where the child connects with adults who fosters an ongoing relationship that supports his quest for independence.
The classroom environment is focused on supporting the child as he acquires the skills to “do it myself.” Children have the freedom to move, explore and manipulate the objects in the environment, and they are given the time they need to accomplish their work. Activities change and evolve as the child grows.
The classroom allows children to develop and refine movements, increase language, and launch into social relationships with peers. Under the loving guidance of the teachers, children learn to respect themselves, others and the environment while growing physically, emotionally, and intellectually.
Program & Staff
The lead teacher and owner has been involved with the Montessori community for more than 20 years. She holds a Bachelor's Degree in Accounting and is a CPR & First-aid certified. As a mom herself, she understands parents' needs and concerns when it comes to finding nurturing care and quality early childhood education.
While this in-home child care facility isn't large enough for a true Montessori school, the owner has a deep understanding of the Montessori philosophy and teaching methods, which inspire her curriculum and program. She holds a Baccalaureate in commerce as well as a Montessori certification from the American Montessori Society.
Oakdale Woods Children's House is open from 7:00 am to 6:00 pm, Mondays to Fridays. They offer full-time and part-time care for infants as young as 4 weeks, as well as toddlers and preschoolers up to 5 years old. Children above 2 years old are provided with peanut and tree-nut free lunch and snacks (both are included in the tuition).
