Thurgood Marshall Child Development Center

    • Rating

Thurgood Marshall Child Development Center provides quality care for children ages 3 months until kindergarten.
Current Openings for 3-5 year olds! www.tmcdconline.org Our center offers warm, friendly, professionally-organized, unique child care in the heart of the nation’s capital, just steps from Union Station in Washington, D.C. We strive to create a loving community of children, parents, teachers, and friends.
Our staff include talented, highly trained, and academically credentialed teachers who nurture and facilitate integrated learning, following a child’s own rhythms. Our responsive teachers understand that children are learning all the time through active and purposeful involvement with people, materials, and ideas.
We use the Creative Curriculum, a play-orientated, child-initiated approach. The Creative Curriculum fosters a dynamic environment to satisfy the young child’s natural sense of wonder, sociability, eagerness to explore and problem solve, enthusiasm for quality literature, and aptitude to learn through play.
In addition to classroom experiences, children play on our large, private outdoor playground, go on neighborhood walks, and have the option to take field trips to exciting destinations. We also offer enrichment programs in Spanish, music, and gymnastics.
We see parents and teachers as partners, and value close, regular, and open communication. Our environment respects individuality and differences. We have an open door policy, and parents are welcome to visit anytime.

  1. Thurgood Marshall Child Development Center (TMCDC) is an excellent early childhood learning environment. It has a great reputation, established rules and regulations for everything from operating hours to how to handle emergencies, a qualified and dedicated staff, clean and safe facilities, and is one of only 7,000 programs accredited by the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC), the highest standard available. My daughter attends TMCDC and my newborn son will also soon, and I highly recommend it to anyone in the DC area.
