Our welcoming, child-centered campus in residential Ashburn, Virginia, reinforces every aspect of the Golden Pond Way.
Spacious, cheerful classrooms overflowing with exciting materials and books evolve into stimulating picture- and print-rich environments, as children engage in learning through themes. Centers within classrooms allow for individual inquiry and for extra attention to be given in smaller groups. Hallways decorated in class projects, poetry, and Venn diagrams provide a way for children to present what they’ve learned not just to each other but also to parents, who are encouraged to visit.
When it’s time to move and shake, three outstanding outdoor play areas offer age-appropriate play structures, sandboxes, trike paths, and dramatic play equipment. There’s also ample running room covered in artificial turf.
Golden Pond’s outdoor area is an extension of the classrooms with multiple garden plots, fruit-bearing apple and cherry trees and thornless blackberry bushes. Our fauna include birds who favor building nests atop our outdoor light fixtures and rabbits that feast at our pumpkin patch.
Nutritional meals are prepared in our on-site kitchen by a professional cook. Recognizing the prevalence and seriousness of peanut allergies, our kitchen and campus are nut-free.
We are very proud of our exceptional facilities and invite you to visit and see and feel for yourself the excitement of a forward-looking, child-centered early learning environment.
