Countryside Children’s Academy
Since opening in 1993, Countryside Children’s Academy has become the premier independent child care center in Sterling, VA.
Our aim is simple: to provide an outstanding education experience for all the children in our care. We do that by creating a learning environment for your child that is both fun and stimulating.
As of 2017, we have become the first educational facility in the USA to become STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Math) accredited from the Finland-based Fun Academy.
Our approach takes the best of the Finnish educational philosophy and combines it with the Fun Learning to create the essential early childhood education program.
The teachers at our daycare promote healthy, balanced learning environments for children, where innovation, active participation, and responsibility are encouraged by The Fun Learning approach.
The Fun Learning approach guides children to be curious and explore their world with positive and constructive attitudes. It also promotes overall well-being: rest, play, and work exist in tandem, emphasizing the importance of healthy nutrition and physical exercise.
