A Bright New Day
We focus on the health, safety, and security of each child. Our classrooms include daily activities for mindfulness, emotional and empathy development, and friendship building.
Our center is now open and welcoming back families. Space is limited; please call for enrollment information.
Welcome to Innovation Station Child Development Center, located inside the Jefferson Building in the Carlyle Center in Old Towne Alexandria. We believe early education lays the groundwork for success, and our team strives to provide a creative environment to learn, grow, and thrive. Each classroom has a dramatic play area, perfect for imaginative and unstructured playtime. The Growing Readers nook in our lobby offers a comfortable place to foster a love of reading, an enrichment room provides opportunities for active play, yoga & group games, gardening boxes provide a place to for little hands to dig in and explore Mother Nature, and our spacious playgrounds have plenty of room for downtime and socialization.
