Your child’s day will be filled with self-directed activities, teacher-led activities, as well as small group and large group projects. This diverse approach ensures all learners are given an opportunity to learn and develop at their own pace. Our curriculum program is based on Virginia’s Milestones of Development and The Foundation Blocks of Learning used by Head Start. Our facility has the latest in technology.

Our goal is to provide a 21st century educational experience, geared towards preparing children to become life long learners. Children will be given the chance to learn through experiences that promote social, physical, intellectual, and emotional growth.

Customer Stories

I absolutely love this center (locust grove). The staff is phenomenal and you can really tell they care about the kids. They aren’t just a number to them. My son has grown so much since attending this school.

— KelleAnne Surine

Absolutely the best child care great teachers and staff my son absolutely loves going he wakes up and ask if he is going to school today highly recommended!!!

— David Massey

My son has been attending Callahan for almost 2 years and he loves it. I was hesitant about daycare but have been happy since day one. The staff and teachers really care about the kids. We were so sad when Callahan had to close due to covid. I never looked to send him anywhere else. I knew we wanted to stick with Callahan. He has learned so much and come so far.

— Rachel Feindt
