School Notes

  • Welcome to Telegraph Road KinderCare! We are an early childhood education and day care center located in Alexandria, VA and have been a strong part of the Alexandria community since 1977.  In 2014, Northern Virginia Magazine named our center one of the Top Daycare/ Preschool Providers! We became accredited by the National Association of Childcare Providers in 2010 and maintain this accreditation.                  

    Conveniently located between South Kings Highway and Fort Belvoir, we are here to service the community, and even offer a 5% military discount. Telegraph Road KinderCare is the perfect option for a daycare or preschool near Fort Belvoir, Coast Guard, and near Kingstowne, VA.

     We provide daycare and well-rounded curriculums for children ages 14 months to 7 years of age on a full- or part-time basis. We have an amazing playground which allows the children plenty of room for movement. It also allows us to take our preschool and pre kindergarten activities outside to discover and learn. Our classrooms are small and intimate which allows staff to offer ultimate child care services. All of our staff hold a B.A./ B.S. or a CDA and are certified in CPR and First Aid.

    We look forward to showing you our center and would love to have you meet our staff. Schedule a tour today to see our toddler program, preschool curriculum, pre k activities, and transitional kindergarten programs!
  • Quality early childhood education and day care centers begin with a safe environment. At our learning center, keypad entry systems are located on the front and back doors. You must have the key code to gain access to the building; code is changed every 6 months. All of the staff are CPR and First Aid certified. Management and selected teachers are trained and certified in MAT (Medication Administration Training). Each day, families clock their children in/out using the computer located in the entrance and teachers account for all children in their care every 30 minutes with a name-to-face check. Our enormous playground is completely fenced in and the gates are secured. All Virginia state licensing standards are vigorously upheld in addition to all of KinderCare's corporate standards.
