The Woods Academy
The Woods Academy is an inclusive Catholic community preparing boys and girls to lead lives of significance. Our academic program begins with Primary Montessori for students ages 3 – 6. It is a balanced and integrated curriculum in a classroom whose materials are beautiful, precise, and developmentally appropriate. Lessons are given individually. After Montessori we transition to a more “traditional” environment for our students in Grades 1 -8 that is filled with innovative and hands on opportunities; ways for children to truly understand what we are teaching. Our full time Reading Specialist and Math Resource teacher are in the classrooms working side by side with our teachers and our children, helping them develop the foundational skills they need to be successful. We prepare all students for the intellectual and social challenges at public, independent, and Catholic high schools. Our comprehensive high school placement program places nearly 100% of our students into their first choice high school. Outside of our strong academic program our children are exposed to a fine arts program, music classes that teach everything from drums of the world to classical guitar, technology that includes robotics and programming and coding, physical education classes twice a week in our state of the art gym or on our playing fields, and a library that encourages everyone to pick up a book and read. We seek to provide our students with an atmosphere that develops a lifelong love of learning by exposing them to a well-rounded curriculum that will develop their critical thinking and problem solving skills, not only for school but for life. The Woods Academy is where children come to discover their talents, grow in their faith, challenge themselves, and foster a strong desire to lead lives of significance.

Children In The Shoe East West Towers

The Children in the Shoe Inc. provides high quality early care and... education for young children. Our programs are play-based, emphasizing creativity, cooperation and social development. Our emergent curriculum is inspired and driven by the imaginations of children and supported by skillful, knowledgeable teachers, who plan developmentally appropriate experiences based on demonstrated effective early childhood practices. We strive to instill in each child, a joyful passion for learning and a secure social foundation based in cooperative play, self-expression and positive conflict resolution. Academics such as letters, numbers, science, geography, and social studies flow naturally from the creative and exploratory process of guided play. A child who has discovered that the learning process is fun and rewarding is truly prepared to meet the challenges of the more directed teaching methods that they will encounter in Kindergarten and beyond. The Children in the Shoe develops strong caring partnerships with each child's family through daily communication and by listening carefully to parents' ideas and effectively addressing their concerns. We offer regular parent teacher conferences and child assessments, as well as observations, resources, referrals and advice from infancy through preschool.

Communikids Preschool

Our mission at CommuniKids is to prepare young children to become the... global citizens of tomorrow by creating a joyful, playful, and nurturing environment that immerses students in a second language. Our program strives to instill the disposition, knowledge, and skills required to succeed in a highly interconnected world. At CommuniKids, we prepare young children to become the global citizens of tomorrow while immersing them in a second language. We offer our NAEYC-accredited preschool, which immerses children in a second language and new culture, while also preparing them for kindergarten. Preschool is available for children from age 2 1/2 – age 5. Our DC and Loudoun County, VA locations offer preschool in only Spanish. Our Falls Church location offers preschool in Spanish and French. Our Richmond, VA location offers preschool in Spanish and Mandarin Chinese. Our afterschool Language Enrichment Program offers classes for children from age 18 months up to age 8, in order to further practice their language skills in either Spanish, French, Chinese, or Arabic. These classes provide developmentally-appropriate ways for children to learn the new language, including: singing, dancing, playing, and, for the school-age students, reading and writing as well. Our summer camps offer summer fun while learning about nature, animals, and plants. All of our summer camps offer Spanish-language immersion, and some of our locations offer French or Mandarin, as well. CommuniKids began as a small, parent-run cooperative preschool in 2003 and has developed into the DC Metro area’s premier children’s language center and preschool. At the very beginning, three of our top executives were inspired by the idea of having their own children develop into multilingual, multicultural global citizens. They had their own children enrolled in their new school, and have been thrilled to watch their children grow into the global, multilingual young people they see today. Seeing these extraordinary linguistic and cultural developments in their own children, they hoped to be able to do the same for other families as well. As a team, in 2005, we began broadening our scope into afterschool programs for children. We established our preschool program in 2009 in both Falls Church, VA and Washington, DC. In the spring of 2015, we opened a new preschool center in Richmond, VA and in the summer of the same year, we opened another center in Loudoun County, VA. CommuniKids was the area’s first language center to offer classes for children ages 18 months to 8 years of age in Spanish, French, Mandarin, and Arabic, and is currently the only children’s language center to offer a full-time, Spanish and French-immersion preschool in the greater Washington area. We are proud of our story and are very excited about its future chapters.

Montessori School of Chevy Chase

The Montessori School of Chevy Chase was founded in 1999 and serves... approximately 60 children from many diverse cultures and backgrounds each year. Our school enjoys a reputation for academic excellence and active parent involvement. Our founder/director of the school, Marlene Cherry, holds an AMI Primary Montessori Diploma, a Masters Degree in Montessori Education and a BS in Education. All teachers are Montessori certified and take ongoing classes to further their education. The Montessori School of Chevy Chase is a member of the International Montessori Council and the American Montessori Society. Overview Montessori is an educational approach focusing on independence, respect for a child’s natural development, and freedom (within limits). It is founded on the premise that while children develop in different ways and at different rates, they do so in a defined sequence. The Montessori approach holds that young children have a natural drive to understand the world around them and they can best learn through self-teaching in carefully prepared environments, under the guidance of a caring teacher. Montessori Teachers Montessori teachers help individual children find challenges appropriate for their skill level. While traditional teachers tend to act as leaders and organizers, Montessori teachers serve more as a guides and facilitators. It is their job to provide positive reinforcement and steer children towards challenging activities while respecting their freedom of choice. Montessori Classrooms Classrooms in Montessori schools are specially designed to spark curiosity, minimize unnecessary failure and promote feelings of joy when achievement occurs. Children start by focusing on concrete and manipulative tasks then shift to more abstract tasks as knowledge and proficiency increase. In a Montessori classroom, the goal is to stimulate the desire for self exploration and understanding. Our Program Child The Montessori School of Chevy Chase provides quality learning and growth opportunities for children between the ages of 18 months and 6 years old. All of our programs fully embrace the Montessori method of teaching which includes an emphasis on self-directed learning, mixed age group classrooms and building independence & confidence.
