I have used this provider for more than 6 months

For the last 5+ years, my children have attended HCC and have benefitted greatly from the time spent at the Center. The play-based curriculum allows each child to learn in ways that interest them and has prepared my own kids, both academically and emotionally, to succeed as they move into elementary school.

The staff at HCC truly care about the kids and welcome each with smiles and hugs whenever they walk through the door. In addition, since the kids advance through the Center as part of a class, they are able to stay with their same group of friends throughout their time at HCC, which is different from some centers that simply move kids to a new class whenever they have a birthday.

They Center is tucked away in a quiet office complex but offers plenty of outdoor and indoor play space with multiple age-appropriate playgrounds and a "movement" room for large group activities and inside play.

The lunches served at HCC are hot, healthy, and fresh each day and are offered in a family-style way in each classroom so that the kids benefit from eating together with their peers.

As one of my children has a food allergy, the staff at HCC has been fantastic at making necessary adjustments to ensure that he is kept safe. In addition, HCC is a nut-free facility to help those families of children with peanut or tree nut allergies.

Our experience has been great at Herndon Children's Center and I would highly encourage any families looking for childcare in the Herndon area to enroll their children at HCC.
