Reston Children’s Center has established its two main goals as:

  1. meeting the developmental needs of children and
  2. providing support systems for families.

The first goal is implemented by stressing cooperation, independence, and interaction among children of various ages and among caring adults. Children are allowed many choices, while being guided to take advantage of all facilities and opportunities offered at RCC and in the community. The different ways in which children learn and the importance of fostering good feelings about themselves are vital aspects of RCC’s program planning.

The daily program provides experiences that promote growth, well-being, and age-appropriate development of gross and fine motor skills, language skills, cognitive skills, social and emotional skills, positive self-concept, curiosity, interest, and opportunities for exploration.

In meeting the second goal, RCC is committed to the idea that parents need to develop themselves as parents and as individuals through their careers, creative endeavors, civic responsibilities and leisure. Childcare contributes substantially to that development and benefits parents, children, and the community. A variety of parent education and support programs are offered by RCC.



What Parents are Saying

“Our family has been part of the RCC community for four years, when our oldest started in the preschool program. Our two younger children started at RCC in turn, and we’ve had a child in almost every RCC class, from the “Butterfly” babies through preschool and even RCC kindergarten and summer camp.  The RCC teachers and administrators are some of the most beloved people in our lives, and we feel so lucky to have the support of RCC as we raise our children.  Our family has really found a home in this community.”

“Reston Children’s Center before and after school care is a highlight of my daughter’s day! She loves seeing her friends from different schools, playing outside, and doing art. As a parent, I am so grateful for the amazing staff who know and care about my child and make her feel at home. And my husband and I rely on the morning and afternoon hours plus the excellent full day programming when public school is closed. We love RCC!”

- Hilary Spring

Our kids have been going to RCC for over 6 years and have loved every minute of it. They are like family and provide such a loving and caring environment for our kids. Our kids have grown and learned so much with them.  They are truly an amazing team.”
