Registration and Enrollment
You’ve looked over RCC’s website, talked to some happy parents, and decided you want to enroll your child at Reston Children’s Center.
We’re delighted you’ve chosen RCC, but before you fill out an application form we highly encourage you and your child to come see RCC in action for yourselves. We want to ensure that parents and children alike will be happy with some of the features that make RCC unique, such as our open classroom environment for preschool and school-aged children, and the benefits and requirements of being a parent-owned cooperative.
Please give us a call at (703) 476-8150 to arrange a tour with our executive director or one of our program directors.
As a not-for-profit, parent-owned cooperative, under section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code, RCC creates an unparalleled teacher/parent partnership dedicated to the education and development of your child. A key component of this partnership is parental participation.
We understand how busy parents are, so RCC offers a wide variety of ways to participate, including (but not limited to):
serving on the board of directors
serving on a committee
participating in regularly scheduled weekend parent workdays
assisting in fundraising
chaperoning field trips
sharing any professional, or other expertise, a parent may offer
We try to make it as easy as possible to help out, and any extra time contributed in a given month may carry over into future months and years. Member families are obliged to contribute at least two hours of their time per month per family.

Two unique programs that serve children from the ages of two-and-a-half years to five years:
Preschool at the Reston Children’s Center is a magical place. Our children learn and grow in a unique, open-environment setting designed to promote social skills, choice making, and both structured and free play — all of which help our children develop self confidence and compassion as they make new friends, learn new life skills, and prepare for a lifetime of learning.
A private full day program to build a foundation of skills and the love of learning.
The Reston Children’s Center Kindergarten program is a full-day program in which students are provided with a curriculum that covers developmental reading skills and writing skills, math instruction, and science and social studies classes. Extracurricular classes are provided as well, such as physical education, art, yoga, conservation, Spanish, and music.
Our Before and After School Program offers children a unique environment where they can learn, play, and explore.
Our professional well-educated experienced staff strives to get to know each child as a unique individual, instilling self-confidence, while making RCC a fun and rewarding place to be with a special clubhouse feel.
The program features a rotating schedule of exciting daily clubs, field trips, and numerous free play opportunities. The children are encouraged to “choose their own adventures” inside of our open flexible environment, forging valuable friendships and learning important life lessons along the way. Children are also able to enjoy quiet areas for homework and free art, as well as reading time.
The Reston Children’s Center (RCC) Corporation is a parent-owned cooperative organized to finance and operate a non-profit community program serving the developmental and educational needs of children and to provide support systems for families. The program includes infant care, preschool education, before and after-school enrichment and summer camp for children in grades K through six.
As a nonprofit childcare facility, RCC receives a small subsidy from the United States Department of Agriculture for its food program. All snacks and meals served at RCC meet USDA menu requirements and are prepared in our full commercial kitchen. Menus are posted on ProCare App weekly, Meal Patterns for Infants and Children are posted on the bulletin Board, and on the Parent’s Corner at www.RestonChildren.org.

” After 30 years of working in Early Childhood Education, I am thrilled to be a part of the Reston Children’s Center community. I was drawn to RCC because of the passionate educators, amazing children, and supportive families. Our school is a magical place filled with love, learning, and laughter and to be a part of that is life changing for everyone. Not only are our classrooms filled with joy and education, but our outdoor spaces are unique and certainly a favorite place for children and families to explore. I strive to lead our community so that every child has a diverse environment to learn and become their very best self.“
