Montessori Children's Center

Founded in 1983 by a husband and wife duo, Riza and Fiaza Haniffa, Montessori Children’s Center began as a twenty eight student school, in Falls Church, Virginia. The center itself was a far cry from MCC campuses of today- it was simply a renovated 1940′s house. Students and their families were impressed by the individual attention given to each child and their families, along with the importance the preschool placed on the success and well-rounded growth of each and every one of its students.

Why do parents love Montessori Children's Center

Montessori Children's Center is an excellent daycare. The teachers are thoughtful, kind and understanding. I've had two children at this center and they have received excellent care. My child was taught to use the potty, put his own shoes on and write his name, among many other things, we would have struggled to teach him as working parents. It's also very affordable, and the location was very convenient for us.

Both of my children currently attend this daycare and have done since they were infants. We love the care and attention all the teachers and staff give. Our children love going there and have made great friends. We love being part of the MCC family!

As new parent I had no experience with daycare. It was difficult to choose a location. I wanted a place that would be safe, educational, and close to home. My daughter is being cared for by people that truly care.I love to hear daily about the things that she is experiencing and learning. We appreciate that the teachers are actually teaching and not just "watching" her.
