Reston Children's Center (RCC) Celebrates 50 Years of Providing Childcare in the Reston Community!
Reston Children’ s Center strives to be your child’ s home away from home, offering professional care in a loving and nurturing atmosphere. Established in 1967, shortly after Reston itself was established, RCC has been serving local children and their families ever since.
We provide infant and toddler care, preschool education, before- and after-school enrichment for children in kindergarten through sixth grade, private kindergarten and summer camp for schoolage children. Class sizes are limited and the teachers and administrators are dedicated seasoned professionals. Staff turnover is remarkably low, with more than half of the RCC staff serving 10 years or more.
RCC is a not-for-profit parent-owned cooperative under section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code. With parents composing the entire board of directors and the many committees that support RCC, there is never any question that children and their families come first. This unique structure also creates an unparalleled teacher/parent partnership dedicated to the education and development of your child.
We invite you to browse our website to learn more about RCC, and more important, we encourage you to arrange a tour to see for yourself what makes RCC such a special place.

RCC is an active participant in the Week of the Young Child, an annual celebration sponsored by the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC), celebrating early learning, young children, their teachers and families.
RCC will celebrate the week with extra special activities for our children and honoring our early childhood teachers who are at the heart of quality early learning during NAEYC's Week of the Young Child. Here's how we will celebrate:
- Music Monday! We will sing, dance, celebrate and learn. Check out the NAEYC's Collection of Children's Songs: http://families.naeyc.org/songs

- Work Together Wednesday! All our children and teachers will work together, build together, and learn together.
- Artsy Thursday! Our children will celebrate exploring the arts and creating fantastic masterpieces!
- Family Friday! We'll be celebrating family and sharing family stories.

Our Before and After School Program offers care for children during regular RCC hours, opening at 6:30 am and closing at 6:30 pm. RCC provides school bus transportation to various elementary schools in the Reston area. Breakfast and an afternoon snack are served, with a warm lunch on full days.
A unique facet of our program is that we provide care on many days when Fairfax County public schools are closed, including winter and spring breaks, teacher work days, and most snow days.
