Both of our children have gone to TCCC since they were 4 months old. I could not be happier with the quality of care and love that they get there! The teacher turnover rate is incredibly low, because the school appropriately prioritizes making sure they have the best teachers for the job - and ensuring that they are treated with respect and compensated fairly. This makes a world of difference - I've heard from others in the area where the teachers are constantly changing. The teachers they have at TCCC really truly love the children! The curriculum is fantastic as well - my daughter is in the preschool class and is well ahead of where she should be for her age. They also made the potty training process a breeze for us - which was really helpful because we had an infant at home! It's so comforting knowing how happy my kids are when they are there - they love it and I know they are safe!
I love TCCC! My daughter has gone to school there since she was 2mths old. In every room she has progressed to she was met with great love and attention by all her teachers and staff. She has grown and developed so much by all that she was taught there and has turned out to be an amazing, intelligent and outgoing little individual. From infant to school age the programs are excellent. My daughter has enjoyed every day there and I have felt good knowing she is happy and in good hands. This year my daughter will be going off to Kindergarten and we are sad to be leaving TCCC but we know that we can always come back next summer.
my son was in the infant classroom since he's 5 month old, and now in the per-toddler room since 13 months. so far, we are pretty happy with everything the school provides! The teachers are very nice and patient; I can tell he had a great time in the school by his excitement when send him to the school in the morning , and by his smiling face when I pick him up in the afternoon. Especially that he would ask for a hug when we encounter his teachers (including the teachers from the previous classroom) in the school hallway! And the classroom is clean, the schedule is full and fun, what can I ask for more:) I cannot say for pre-school/pre-kindergarden class... but for young children care, I think it's a top choice in this area!
Good, except for the kindergarten assistant. I think she should get some type of training how to teach children math. My child could not even do the math homework. It makes me wonder how she teaches math.
My 4 years old son is kicked out after 2 months in tysons corner childrens center in spring hill for being too active, running around too much and need too much attention. He just came to this country for 3 months and still have struggle for English. I am sure that at least some of these behaviros are from frustration. Very disappointed that instead of getting help for his transition, he is simply kicked out. It is actually shocking to know that a school with good reputation will do this to your kid. As parents, we will expect good teachers have more patience and love.
I am so grateful to have my two daughters at TCCC. The staff are so wonderful, and my girls are excited to go to school every day. I cannot imagine a better place for them to be.
To be honest, this is the best care that money can buy. I have seen both sides of the spectrum, profit and non-profit and this school goes above and beyond what parents could ask for. The issues that plague private chains (i.e. turnover, supervision, cleanliness) are nonexistent. Prekindergarten teacher at Spring Hill Road site is truly amazing...best of the best. Additionally, Kindergarten program at Mclean is the best I've seen. It is almost guaranteed that your child will graduate at a 1st grade reading level or higher and know everything from fractions, mathematical concepts, biomes, and several advanced topics.
My children have been at TCCC for nearly 4 years, both at Spring Hill and McLean. I could not think of a better place for my children to learn and grow. We tried several other options before coming to TCCC and nothing has compared. First we were in a home daycare setting that was adequate for younger children but not for toddlers. We also tried another daycare facility in the area and it felt like a factory with tons of turnover and little personal care. Once we got to TCCC, we found a nurturing, exciting, lively environment. The teachers, who have tenure and low turnover, loved my children like they were their own. My now 6 year old will be completing Kindergarten soon at TCCC and is reading impressively and excelling in math. She loves school. My son is also more than ready for Kindergarten next year. We couldn't be happier.
Have two children who have attended TCCC. Both have thrived. By the time they left kindergarten they were reading at a 2nd grade+ level. Never had any concerns about the care or their safety. Staff is attentive and professional. This day care is non-profit and parents are supposed to be actively involved in activities. Looked at othe day cares when we started having kids - this was top choice in Mclean area.
In the infant room a lot of the teachers can't speak proper english. This makes it difficult to find out about your infant's day. There is a lot of redirecting but no consequences for bad behavior. Most of the teachers do not have Early Childhood Degrees or CDA. The preschool is very chaotic. The two year old and the J-k room are pretty good. I really liked the j-k teachers. I liked the director at the greensboro site.
