Welcome

Thank you for your interest in our school. We are very proud of the community that we have created at KinderCare Ashburn Village. Our purpose is to create a life time love of learning for each child. Our ideal day for a child ends with a conversation like this: Mom - "What did you do today?" Child - "I played all day!" We want your child to enjoy learning so much that it feels like play to them. The excitement of learning starts with us and is carried on with them throughout elementary school, middle school, high school and beyond. So many factors contribute to our amazing program: long term teaching staff, long term management, KinderCare's curriculum and national accreditation. Please call us to schedule a tour and start your child's journey today!

What makes KinderCare Ashburn Village special? Our long term teachers and management, national accreditation and fabulous curriculum implementation!

Accreditation

Many of our child care centers are accredited by national organizations that require us to meet rigorous early childhood education standards and guidelines for high-quality care and education. Programs that are accredited have demonstrated their commitment to go beyond the state’s minimum licensing requirements to meet and maintain these high standards of quality.

Our Programs

Infant Programs (6 weeks - 1 year)

Babies grow and learn every day. Our goal is to provide a safe and nurturing "home away from home" where babies can explore and make new discoveries. We know that learning through play is extremely valuable at this age and our Early Foundations® Infant program is designed to give babies the skills that will serve as the building blocks for a lifetime of learning.

Toddler Programs (1 – 2 Years)

As toddlers develop friendships, self-esteem, and curiosity, our Early Foundations® Toddler program will help them explore their world in a safe and nurturing environment. Our unique curriculum is based on the philosophy that children learn best through experiences. So each day is filled with fun activities that excite and develop toddlers, giving them the comfort and confidence to speak those first few important words, as well as make their first friends.

Discovery Preschool Programs (2 – 3 Years)

At this age, children are making new discoveries daily. And as two-year olds begin to exert their independence, our Early Foundations® Discovery Preschool program is prepared to open their eyes to a world of learning, sharing, and exploring. Our holistic approach in the classroom engages young minds with a blend of music, art, and movement, as well as the early education fundamentals they'll need as they continue on to preschool.

Preschool Programs (3 – 4 Years)

As preschoolers gain more self-esteem, they may feel ready to take on the world. Our Early Foundations® Preschool program enhances that confidence by providing activities to help children become problem solvers and lifelong learners. Through independent exploration, structured activities, and hands-on learning, children will work on early literacy, math, science, and social studies concepts. A healthy dose of running, jumping, and dancing keeps them active too.

Prekindergarten Programs (4 – 5 Years)

Prekindergartners are preparing for the adventure of a lifetime – school. And our Early Foundations Prekindergarten® program is designed to get them ready by teaching letters and words, math concepts, and valuable social skills. With small group instruction, independent play in an organized atmosphere, and whole-group activities, children will have all the right skills to hop, skip, and jump right into kindergarten.

Private Kindergarten Programs (5 – 6 Years)

As children reach school age, our comprehensive full-day kindergarten program helps them explore, communicate, and create – all in a nurturing, small-class setting. Our team of expert educators has created a unique curriculum of reading, language, arts, math, science, and physical fitness that’s presented in a fun way to encourage a lifelong love of learning. Plus, our program is aligned with local and state elementary school standards, so children will be prepared to confidently enter first grade.

Before- & After-School Programs (5 – 12 Years)

Even after school's out for the day, children need to be engaged in a comfortable, yet stimulating environment. That's where our Catch the Wave® program comes in. This innovative before – and after-school program allows school-age children to balance learning and fun through a variety of experiences. From homework help to fun physical activities, our program is designed so that everyone goes home happy.

Interactive Kindergarten (5 - 6 Years)

A full-day interactive Kindergarten program that utilizes new curriculum with an interactive smart board making first grade readiness a priority.

Summer Programs (preschool, prekindergarten, and school-age)

Don’t miss out on KinderCare’s Summer of Wonder: Six themed programs that will make summer exciting, educational and tons of fun. Whether your child is in our preschool, Pre-K or school-age programs, all of it is designed to help children learn while soaking up the fun. We offer flexible scheduling options to meet the needs of busy families like yours so we hope to see you there.

Participating Child Care Aware Center

KinderCare has partnered with Child Care Aware® of America in an effort to offer fee assistance for Active Duty military families and solutions to their child care needs when care at a Child Development Center on the installation is not available.

Learning Adventures - Enrichment Program

Cooking

The Cooking Adventures program gives children opportunities to participate in fun, developmentally appropriate cooking experiences. They will learn about recipes, ingredients, cooking vocabulary, and the importance of a healthy diet. The curriculum includes lessons on picnics, pizza, and heart-healthy meals.

Math

The Math Adventures enrichment program is designed to teach important mathematics concepts such as geometry, numbers, measurement, and probability. Your child will learn about length, height, and weight. He will learn about shapes and solids. He will learn how to add, subtract, multiply, and count money. Math is everywhere and giving your child every advantage now will add up to success later in life.

Music

Ongoing research proves that early exposure to music helps children think, reason, create, and express themselves. Children will laugh and learn about rhythm, vocal melodies, and a variety of musical genres and instruments, which can lower stress and advance memory. Learning never sounded so good.

Phonics & Reading Adventures

Set your child up for advanced success with literacy through phonics, the study of letters and sounds. Reader books, games, and activity cards help your child understand the basics of vowels and blending syllables, giving him confidence and command of language.

Spanish

Spanish Adventures provides young learners with a foundation for later success with the Spanish language. Music, games, children's Spanish literature, and other tools give children multiple opportunities to hear, practice, and see Spanish language for vocabulary and conversational development. Curriculum includes lessons on greetings, numbers, colors, animals, family, body parts and pets as well as how to get engage conversationally during common scenarios at home, a restaurant, or at the zoo.

    Jeannette Rivera, Center Director

    The first years of a child’s life are full of developmental milestones. I love being able to help children meet and exceed their milestones and prepare the foundation for their future. I enjoy the relationships I have with children, parents and staff. I love being part of their growth and development. I truly feel like I’m part of their families. The smallest success for a child is also one for me. I am honored to be a part of their lives.

Nicole, Kelley, and the whole KinderCare team are truly amazing and gifted individuals. Everyday, I leave my children in the wonderful care of all the exceptional teachers with absolutely no concern, fear, or stress. They are always excited to go and see their friends and teachers. The curriculum and focus on early development and education is above and beyond what I would have ever imagined. Each person who works at KinderCare brings a strong sense of professionalism and character while connecting to small children with an ability to relate to them with love and kindness. Nicole and the KinderCare family offer an amazing partnership to raising my children. I feel a tremendous amount of support as a parent and my children are thriving with self confidence and recognition. My children absolutely love being a part of the KinderCare family, as my husband and I do.

- Mother

I have been bringing my children to this center for six years. The director and the teachers are amazing! They give tremendous care and it is really nice that my younger son has many of the same teachers that my older so had - there is very little turnover! I recommend this center as often as I can.

- Mother

Congrats Nicole and the Kindercare team on your accreditation! You all do a wonderful job! Everyone is so hardworking and caring at the same time. We are so happy your hard work is paying off in this way. For us, personally.... Your hard work shines through our happy, well adjusted, independent children who have learned so much from your school. You all have done a great job with them! Thank you from the bottom of our hearts!
