CURRENT OPENINGS: For children 2 and up only!
Ivy City Early Childhood Academy is a charming daycare and preschool in Washington, DC. Our child care facility is located in the Ivy City neighborhood, right off New York Ave NE (US-50). We also have easy access to major roads Bladensburg Rd NE (US-1) and Rhode Island Ave NE (US-1), perfect for your daily commute!
About Us:
Iā€™m the owner and director of this high-quality child care center and preschool. Iā€™m a mom of 3, and I have 15 years of experience and a Bachelor's Degree in Sociology Development & Social Change. All my teachers are moms, too! Thus, we can easily relate to your child care needs and concerns. Our staff members have many years of experience in early education and each one of them has an Associateā€™s Degree. Weā€™re a team of moms who want to help parents in the area by providing nurturing care and quality early education in a safe learning environment. We want our center to be the extension of your family!
Curriculum:
Ivy City Early Childhood Academy uses the Creative Curriculum to meet the creative, social, and intellectual needs of the children. We engage our students in various educational activities to stimulate their curiosity, discover new things, and develop their basic sensory skills. We believe that each child is unique so weā€™re allowing them to learn at their own pace with the guidance of our teachers. For us, it is very important that we acknowledge this in a child's formative years. Our program is designed to help children develop their valuable skills while having fun. We also teach our kids Spanish and French in addition to English so this is a great opportunity for your child to become multilingual at a young age.
Program:
Our daycare center and preschool is open all throughout the year from 7:00 am to 6:00, Mondays to Fridays. We offer full-time care for infants as young as 6 weeks, as well as toddlers through preschoolers up to 5 years old, including children with special needs. We provide lunch and snacks to kids in our care (included in the tuition). Contact us through CareLuLu to schedule a visit and get your $100 registration fee waived.

We love this center. The infant teacher is an absolute gem, she clearly cares so much about her babies and has such a way with them. Our son bonded with her right away and is all smiles every day at drop off. The center is breastfeeding friendly and is very flexible with me stopping by anytime to visit or feed my son; I love this for those moments when I miss him but it's also great that they are transparent in what they're doing and welcome... more

This place is clean, safe and I love the updates in the app. I am able to stay in the know with what is going on with my child all day. The center change diaper every two hours or sooner which I love and I every diaper change gets A&D for preventative. The staff (all have child care certificates) is professional and care for all the children. This center also provides lunch and is affordable for childcare in DC. I am looking forward to... more

This daycare was our first choice childcare center for our son who was 6 months when he joined. Everyone here was very welcoming and friendly. The teachers were so helpful, and attentive with all of his needs. The facility is very clean and well maintained. I would recommend this location to anyone!

This is the best daycare that one can send their child to. It's a very professional and peaceful place. A place were you can trust your child to attend and as a mommy not worry about your children. .My daughter's teacher is a teacher whom you can approach. She is warm and professional at all times. Your child will come out of the daycare with a huge vocabulary list. It's a place where your child can receive a great education. I wish they were... more
