My husband and I love HCC and all staff members. My son loves them too! What I love about HCC is how well they take care of my child. Teachers post photos through the day about kids' day at school. They also have fun and creative activities to the children since they arrive early in the morning. My son leaves daycare full of stories about his day. They are very patient and helpful with potty training! In their movement room, teachers switch toys around so kids continue to explorer and don't become bored playing the same things.
They have a great meals menu for the children where parents can see exactly what kids are having at mealtime. This has motivated him to try new foods at home as well! My son became more confident and independent at home since he started HCC. He leaves from school happy! That's why we love HCC and their staff members.
Working at HCC has been an amazing experience from day one. Management is always positive and supportive, and I am always made to feel as if I joined a family. Every works together to make sure our children come first, and all their needs are met no matter what.
Our daughter goes to HCC and absolutely loves it. She's always excited to see her friends and teachers, and her level of development has skyrocketed ever since she started attending. Working with Ms Ruby and the rest of the HCC staff is always a pleasure, and we can't say enough good things about their dedication to to the kids.
We just moved to the area and were worried we wouldn't find a good daycare for our kids. Our kids had never been in daycare before so we wanted to make sure we found a place that was caring and in tune with us as parents. When we did our tour we could instantly feel the difference between the HCC and other daycares we had toured. Ann and Ruby are superheroes in our house and have gone above and beyond for our kids on so many occasions to help make our kids more comfortable there. It's also way cleaner than the other places we checked out.
Our family has been attending HCC (formerly FCC) since 2010, and all three of our children have loved it there. The teachers care about the kids so much and several have become like family members to us. The facility has a warm and caring feel to it and the teachers always have fun and educational activities planned. Would not hesitate to recommend HCC to others!
I was a first time mom who was hesitant to put my daughter in childcare. Upon my arrival at HCC for a tour, I was greeted with open arms, reassuring words and a sense of family. Three years later, my daughter enjoys everyday at HCC and drop off for Mom has become a breeze.
Our son has been attending Herndon Children's Center (HCC) for about 2 years and absolutely loves it there. The teachers and staff are all wonderful and we feel like part of a family. The kids learn so much while still getting to play and socialize. The food and facilities are top notch. HCC very much puts your mind at ease knowing your child will be loved and taken care during the day. The center also utilizes the Brightwheel app so parents receive notifications and pictures throughout the day and can communicate directly with the teachers if needed.
We have been so happy with the care, attention and love that HCC gives our son each day. Within a month of him being at HCC we noticed developmental improvements. Their small student-teacher ratios enable him to get the attention he needs and their play-based learning allows him to learn each day through a fun and exciting way. It is evident he loves the school and teachers by the way he interacts with them - always excited to be dropped off and never wanting to leave! As a working parent, I feel confident and comfortable each day leaving him because I know that they will give him the love and care that he needs to grow and learn in a safe environment.
HCC is an incredible place to be. I had my son at a home daycare and one day, I found bruises on him. This is not unusual for a 8 month old but the director made me feel awful for asking about it and told me my child was difficult. I reached out to Ruby and Ann and they were incredible: they let me tour HCC that same day and the next day my son was there. My son was breastfed and we also discovered he had GERD. No matter how difficult it was to feed him, I knew that the teachers and assistants would patiently and lovingly ensure that my son was fed. Now my son has gained almost 4 pounds since he started with them 5 months ago! My son loves his teachers and we can’t express how thankful we are to have him at a place that we know we can trust. Thank you HCC!
Herndon Children's Center provides top notched care for young children. They encourage the children to play and grow together. The teachers are loving, committed and kind. The children experience a variety of activities and learning opportunities. It is observable that they follow a play based program. The children leave Herndon Children's Center ready for kindergarten.
We love the Herndon Children's Center (HCC)! Our son attended HCC for five years, from infant through PreK—my wife and I were really impressed with the education he received and his development at every level. HCC provides play-based learning at its best, and it's clear how the Center earned its NAEYC accreditation. The teachers are wonderful and caring, and the school administration is incredibly supportive and great to work with. The ratio of kids to teachers is relatively small so my son received a lot of personalized attention. I would vouch that he was more than equipped to start kindergarten when he finished his time at HCC.
Our 1-year-old daughter started at HCC back in November, and she is getting the same excellent care that our son had. I would encourage anyone and everyone who needs childcare to seek out this great school.
