Our center is conveniently located at the Reston Plaza America, just off the Dulles Toll road on Sunset Hills Road. Traveling west on VA-267 (Dulles Toll Road) toward the Dulles Airport, you would take exit 12 (VA-602/Reston Parkway). Once through the toll, you would make a right onto Reston Parkway and bear right. Sunset Hills will be your very next signal at which you will turn right. After turning right you will proceed through one signal light. At the second signal light you will make a right turn into Plaza America. Once inside the Plaza you will want to continue to bear right as you drive around the corridor. We are located on the ground floor, near the fire hydrant of the second tower marked 11710!!

Our School-Age Program

Guiding children to experience their world and pursue their interests

We provide school-age child care for school holidays, school closing days, summer day camp or when there is a need for back-up or emergency care. In our school-age program, we provide children with the opportunity to live, learn and socialize in a relaxed setting outside of school.

We offer a wealth of enrichment activities that engage the interests of school-age children. You may find school-age children creating a magazine or a video, playing chess or shooting hoops, tutoring each other or forming a club. Teachers are there alongside, facilitating, guiding and understanding that learning does not have to take on the tone and texture of a school day but rather be filled with fun.

Learning at Home

Frisbee Math

You Will Need:

Frisbee, paper plates or ball, craft/popsicle sticks or paint stirrers, measuring tape, paper, and marker

Directions:

Have your child mark a starting point on the ground with a stick. Then, encourage her to throw the Frisbee or ball. Mark where it lands with a stick labeled with her name. Help her measure how far it went and chart the distances. Does it go farther with practice?

Tip:

After your child has thrown the Frisbee a couple times and you’ve charted the distances together, work together to add up all the distances to get a total.
