About Us: Welcome to Newington Woods Educational Playhouse, our family child care program and preschool program in Springfield, VA. I’m the owner and main caregiver and I have 15 years of experience. I also have 2 assistants with 9 years of combined experience who come to my house when I need their help in taking care of the children attending our program.

All the people living in my house have undergone a background check and fingerprint clearance. In addition to my child care experience and credentials, I also hold a Bachelor’s Degree in Political Science. Philosophy & Curriculum When we open our door to welcome a child in our daycare, he/she becomes a member of our family.

Lorton Station Children's Den

At Lorton Station Children's Den, we understand that one of the most... crucial phase of a child's life is as a toddler. This is when the child’s interpersonal skills develop with more diversity to include interaction with individuals other than immediate family. Our home daycare provides a schedule of learning activities to explore, nourish, and develop skills in your child such as drawing, free play, Kids Arts and Crafts, Holiday Seasonal Crafts and tram work. These activities are designed to stimulate children's senses and provide wonderful learning opportunities. Based on the research, I have found that between age 0-2 years of age the child learns about himself and his/her environment and during this age baby grain grows about five centimeters during the first three months. I am certified in child care in State of Virginia with 8 years’ experience in childcare. During this process my entire family had to go through back group checks along with TB tests. I have CPR& First Aid and MAT Certification. I am also a NAFCC member and has a Child Development Associate Credential. I am accepting children from New Born to 12 years of age and am open from 6:00am to 6:00pm on weekdays. I am excited to meet your family and to provide the best care possible for your children. It’s a very serious responsibility and I give my commitment to the safety and well-being of your child. Being a mother of a daughter, I understand and feel the emotions leaving the child under someone else's care. Please visit us at our home daycare and call me with any questions are concerns you may have. We also work with military families!
