Easter Seals Child Development Center - WA., DC
Washington, DC 20009
(202) 387-4434

Easter Seals Child Development Center provides high-quality inclusive programming that includes early intervention and education, full-day childcare, and parental support.  Our goal is to maximize the physical, cognitive, social and emotional development of each child and ensure a successful transition into school. Easter Seals provides services for children with and without disabilities, 6 weeks to 3 years of age.

Children benefit from individualized occupational, physical, cognitive, and speech/language therapy services offered within the classroom.  As a result of their daily interaction, typically developing children develop a more positive perception of children with special needs and are comfortable with and understand special needs.  Children receiving therapy benefit from role modeling of their typically developing peers and an opportunity to meet all developmental needs in one program.  Easter Seals provides these services to all children regardless of background, and we work especially hard to serve children from low- to moderate-income families.  For those unable to afford the difference between actual cost of services and payment from insurance, Easter Seals secures grants from private foundations and government agencies as well as generous support of individuals.

It is essential that in our effort to teach young children, we are creative, understanding, and make learning a happy experience so children can truly reap the rewards of a quality education.

Bambini Play & Learn, Day Care Center, Llc
Washington, DC 20001
(202) 737-5454
Our mission at Bambini is to, first and foremost, provide a safe, nurturing, loving, high quality, educational environment that maximizes intellectual, physical and emotional growth and development in our young students from three months of age up to five years of age. Our second most important mission, which distinguishes us from other high quality preschool and daycare centers, is to foster the acquisition and development of a foreign language as important as Spanish. We do this by immersing our students in Spanish throughout the entire time that they attend classes at the center. The qualified teachers assigned to your child's class are fluent in Spanish and this is their native tongue. Parents are strongly encouraged to exclusively utilize English or the family's primary language at home.

Research in neurobiology has established that there is a crucial window of opportunity for a child to acquire a second, third or even fourth language with ease and close to native speaker proficiency. This language development window is between the age of 3 months and 5 years. Research has also established that there are significant benefits to exposing children to multiple languages at an early age and raising a child to be bilingual or multilingual. Children who are raised bilingual or multilingual tend to perform better in the areas of science, math and grammar. Bilingual and multilingual children tend to excel more in school, score better on tests of first language skills, be more creative, have greater mental flexibility and follow complicated instructions with greater ease. These are just some of the many benefits of acquiring a second, third or even fourth language early in life. Indeed, exposing your child to multiple languages during this crucial language development window will also open the door to an unlimited number of career opportunities down the road that might not otherwise be available to your child. With our growing multicultural community, there is a strong need for bilingual and multilingual professionals, particularly those who are proficient in Spanish.

Spanish is the second most commonly spoken language in the world after Chinese and is the native language of 322 to 400 million people worldwide. It is also the second most commonly spoken language in the United States after English. Indeed, the United States is home to more than 50 million Hispanics, and is the fifth largest Spanish-speaking community in the world, after Mexico, Spain, Colombia and Argentina. There are over 1.5 million people in Florida alone with Spanish as their native language, and the Hispanic community in the United States is exponentially growing. The importance of having the ability to communicate in Spanish is ever increasing.

Calvary Christian Academy, an entity of Greater Mt. Calvary Holy Church, began operations in 1980 as a Nursery through Kindergarten program. In 1991, the church moved to 610 Rhode Island Avenue, NE. Bishop Alfred Owens, Jr. founded the elementary school in 1992, starting with a class of only 10 first grade students.

Previously a teacher in DC Public School System, Bishop Owens became the first grade teacher. Calvary Christian Academy Elementary School was established in 1992 to assist parents in the "whole" spiritual, social, intellectual, physical, and emotional development of their children. The aim of our teachers is to motivate and compel students to become creative thinkers. We, the faculty and administration, interact with them in such a way that learning becomes fun and activities become an intricate part of their mental, emotional, and physical growth. Our vision is to instill Christian values, social morals, good character, and a comprehensive educational curriculum. Our school has grown tremendously since 1992. The current enrollment is approximately 200 students.

At Capitol Hill Cooperative Nursery School (CHCNS) we view the child as one who is dynamic and curious and who approaches the world with a competent and individual set of learning strategies and abilities. We believe each child has the right to a nurturing, safe, and playful learning environment which fosters social and emotional growth.

Frances Slaughter (Ms. Frances), the Program Director and Teacher, has been preparing three- and four-year-olds for their transition to kindergarten for more than 30 years. CHCNS is a loosely structured program as Ms. Frances’ goal is to create a fun environment so that kids are excited about school. This type of environment also provides the children with a dynamic environment that allows room for free exploration and discovery. CHCNS offers:

Small classes
An intimate nurturing atmosphere
An elementary school setting which exposes students to older children
A certified and tenured preschool teacher with years of experience in the Capitol Hill community
A qualified Music/Movement Instructor
Learning through play that includes art, music, story time, counting/sorting and a variety of gross and fine motor activities

We believe learning at this age takes place in a child-directed playful environment. Through learner-centered discovery, the children learn to problem solve, strengthen communication skills, negotiate their environment, resolve conflicts with their peers, and develop independence. Children are invited to participate in various projects and activities, but each child is accepted at their current developmental stage. Field trips and routine walks throughout the neighborhood foster a sense of community and awareness of surroundings. Rather than being teacher-directed, learning takes place through the children’s organic expression of interests and curiosity. Ms. Frances responds accordingly by introducing topics and projects related to that expression.
