Aldie is a relatively wealthy community with a median household income of twice as much as the average in Virginia, and almost half of the workforce in the Professional Scientific & Technical Services, Public Service and Healthcare. The strong demand for quality child care and preschool is supported by 6 licensed child care centers and 29 licensed home daycares (called Family Day Homes in VA). Children with disabilities or special needs are welcome in 3 all-inclusive facilities where the staff is trained in universal precaution procedures, medication administration, as well as appropriate intervention strategies. There are 2 bilingual daycares in town and in 11 of the Aldie daycares, children with a peanut allergy will be served peanut-free food. Financial assistance through child care subsidies is available in Virginia, and vouchers are accepted in 2 licensed programs to support low-income families. Last but not least, parents who need longer child care hours due to a long commute are supported in 2 facilities that offer before and after school care. In Aldie (and Virginia), in addition to state-licensed early education programs, there are also voluntarily registered family day homes, religiously exempt child day centers, and certified preschools. These are all a form of regulation, but they are not considered a licensed daycare or preschool. Providers and staff members typically undergo background checks and complete essential health and training requirements. However, the rules are more stringent for a Licensed Child Day Center and Licensed Family Day Home. Those licensed facilities adhere to the legal requirements defined by the Virginia Department of Social Services (VDSS). VDSS conducts announced and unannounced inspections of licensed programs at least twice a year to maintain continued compliance (it's not the case for regulated but non-licensed programs). Licensed child care providers are also certified in CPR and first aid, completed a background check and have appropriate experience, education, and training certificates. A staff development training plan is monitored and completed every year to enhance the skills and knowledge of early childhood development further.
