Young Branches Child Care

Congratulations! You have found Young Branches Child Care! I welcome your family into my home and heart. We provide children with a loving and... caring family environment while making available to them the opportunities to learn and grown as they explore the world around them. My belief is that my family childcare is a complement to your family unit. I have an Associates Degree in Early Childhood Education and a Fairfax County Child Care Permit. I am an active member of national and local childcare associations, such as The Virginia Alliance of Family Child Care Associations (VAFCCA), the National Association for Family Child Care (NAFCC), and the Burke Child Care Connection (BCCC). I have current certifications in Adult and Pediatric First Aid and CPR and 23 years experience with children - along with raising my own two grown daughters. We believe young children learn through PLAY and at their individual pace. Our environment offers stimulating and age appropriate activities. While promoting good health and safety, we practice daily - Patience, sharing responsibility, compassion for self and others, communication and teamwork. We participate in the nutritious USDA Food Program providing breakfast, lunch, and AM & PM snacks in a clean, safe, and nurturing environment.

Ms. Caryn Care

About Ms. Caryn Care... I have been in child care for the past ten years and I just keep growing and learning all different fun things to add to what... we do. I enjoy what I do and I enjoy learning and helping kids be the best they can be. I have two school aged children that have awesome fun with us come summer months...and love their friends. I have two spots available April 14 that I would really like to fill immediately. I am responsible for a comfortable, safe, stimulating, non-threatening environment for preschool children, including my own (during the summer) while parents are tending to other obligations. I combine basic care with teaching responsibilities to give them a well balanced daily program. I help to enhance each child's development through consistent care. I provide children with activities which promote physical, emotional, intellectual and social growth while interacting with other children. I aide children in exploring interests, developing talents, building self-esteem and learning how to share and properly interact with others. I enjoy other activities including reading, storytelling, playing coordination and counting games. I support social and emotional development of the children. I attend to the personal hygiene of each child, changing diapers or soiled clothing and washing hands, trimming nails, checking ears, potty training. I maintain a clean and organized area for play, meals, and supplies. I prepare nutritional snacks and meals. I encourage physical activities. **I want to point out that the environment can be peanut/nut free. Peanut products are not served to children under two... and products are checked if they have been processed in a place that handles peanuts, etc. if there is an allergy in the house. I've had two peanut allergy kids in my ten years...

Burke KinderCare

OverviewWelcome to the Burke Commons KinderCare! Thank you for the interest in our school. We provide care for children ages six weeks to twelve... years of age on a full or part-time basis. We strive to help your child develop socially, emotionally, intellectually and physically. Each of our programs offers a year-round curriculum which fosters the needs of children. We welcome you to stop in for a visit. We are very excited to meet you and would love for you to meet our teachers. Teachers & StaffOur center is home to a family of dedicated, passionate, and hard-working teachers and staff members. Together, it is our mission to create an inclusive, compassionate, and nurturing community in which your children can safely and joyfully learn and grow. Our school is truly a home for all of the children and staff members who attend our institution each day, and we are excited to welcome you as the newest members of our community! Health & SafetyHere at Burke Commons KinderCare, safety is very important to us. Our front door, and only entrance, has key pad entry which requires a code to open. All other doors in the center exit into our gated playground area. Staff are required to be First Aid/CPR/AED certified and are required to complete our training before entering the classroom as a teacher. Many of our staff have Early Childhood Education credentials and all of our staff participate in continuing education classes and trainings to keep us up to date with the latest research in Early Childhood Education. In addition to the regular cleaning company, our teachers clean and sanitize the rooms and toys daily. We have a rigid pick up routine in regards to non-guardians of our students. In the event of an authorized pick up, we must be notified by the parent/authorized guardian and need to verify the authorized person's identity in order to release the child.
