About The Daycare:
West Virginia Ave Playhouse is a licensed home-based daycare and preschool in Washington, DC. We’re located in the Ivy City neighborhood, near Lewis Crowe Park. Our place is perfect for your daily commute to work since we’re very accessible and close to major roads, such as New York Ave NW/NE (US-50) and Bladensburg NE/Maryland AVE NE (US-1). Our family child care program is open all year-round from 6:00 am to 6:00 pm, Mondays to Fridays. We provide full-time care for newborn babies, as well as toddlers through preschoolers up to 5 years old. To prevent any possible allergies, we maintain a peanut and tree-nut free environment. We can offer meals to children in our care (breakfast, lunch and snacks) but please note that there is an additional fee for these meals (please inquire about this).
About The Staff:
I’m the owner and main caregiver, and I have a decade of experience in child care and early childhood education. I hold a Child Development Associate's Degree and CPR & First-aid certifications. I run my daycare with my 2 assistants who have 35 years of combined experience. We’re all moms, so we can certainly relate to your child care needs and concerns. Our team ensures that every child receives plenty of individualized attention, and that they are happy and feel loved :)
Philosophy:
West Virginia Ave Playhouse is committed to creating a safe, warm, loving environment for children where they can learn and grow at their own pace physically, emotionally, creatively, intellectually, and socially. We want to help your children boost their confidence and self-esteem by treating them as unique individuals. We strive to make your child’s time in our care the best experience it can be.
Curriculum:
We’re dedicated to providing a safe, nurturing, enriching, and happy environment ensuring school readiness. Our daycare addresses these goals through our Creative Curriculum with lots of activities that foster a strong bond between staff and children, as well as through programs that provide age-appropriate learning experiences that strive to balance structured activities with sensitivity to each child’s readiness to learn.

As a first time mom, I really felt (feel) that my daughter is in great hands while her father and I are at work. My daughter always appears happy upon arrival and when she leaves the facility. The caregiver is truly a kindhearted provider pay attention to each child and their specific needs. I am so glad we found her!

Adiam has been an amazing caregiver for our son. After he started daycare we saw him meet a lot of his developmental milestones early. We are very happy with our choice.

Could not recommend this daycare option enough. The provider is caring and communication is very good. When we first started she understood how hard it is to leave your baby and she sent me updates throughput the day. My son has started to meet his milestones and is obvious he enjoys going to daycare.

This caregiver is an attentive, caring provider. She takes covid protocols and safety seriously and her facilities are impeccably clean. She was quick to learn my son's habits and provides a nurturing environment. He adores her and I have no concerns leaving him in her care.
