I lost countless nights of sleep when searching for a preschool for my son three (3) years ago. It was going to be the first time I would be leaving my son in the care of someone that was not family. I will never forget going to the open house at CommuniKids in Falls Church. I was allowed to observe a few moments of some classes, listening to the teachers speaking in Spanish and French, sitting in circle time, reading books and engaged in art and science activities. I felt such a positive, happy vibe from all of the teachers that day.
In particular, I remember observing Maestra’s class. I observed as she read The Three Little Pigs to the class in Spanish and passed around straw and brick for the children to feel the different textures. All the children were engaged and captivated by her kind, expressive personality. In fact, it brought tears to my eyes because for the first time I could picture my son away from home, cared for and happy. It was then I knew he had to attend CommuniKids!
Three (3) years later, after countless classrooms and summer camps, and I’m left with only glowing recommendations for the teachers and administration at CommuniKids. My son looks forward to school every single day. Each year he has developed a special bond with his teachers, as have I. CommuniKids has been fantastic; not only because it’s allowed my son to be truly bilingual at a young age and has taught him through play, making learning fun, but it has provided a sense of community for me and my son which is priceless.
