Introduction and Announcements  

Thank you for your interest in KinderHaus Child Development Center in Washington, DC. In 1991, our Chevy Chase site opened with 5 children and 2 staff members. Five years later Chevy Chase was at full capacity; 25 children, 7 staff members and a very long wait list. Due to the need to serve the community, our Cleveland Park site was established in 1996. To date, our Cleveland Park site serves 54 children with 15 staff members and a wait list as well. To oversee both sites, we have a full time Director of Staff, Assistant Director and our Founder/Director. 

KinderHaus is open from 7:00 a.m. to 5:45 p.m., Monday thru Friday. 

KinderHaus admits children on a nondiscriminatory basis, without regard to race, creed, gender, physical challenges, religion or national origin. Children are accepted on a first-come, basis. If no space is available for your child's age group, your child's name is put on a waiting list and the Director will call you as space becomes available.

We hope you enjoy navigating our webpage. This webpage will offer you information, policies, forms etc. We hope this site is a resource for current and prospective parents. 

Welcome and Enjoy!

Mission Statement

A child grows in many ways: physically, emotionally, intellectually and socially. At KinderHaus, the goal is to give each child the room, the guidance, and the encouragement to develop confidently in each area of growth. There will be opportunities to play and learn: to be curious creatively, and to feel success through achievement in an atmosphere of faith, hope, and love. The children will be appreciated for themselves and their feelings recognized as valid. KinderHaus will provide for a warm, vital environment in which each child can live and achieve in a manner that will be of lasting value to them and their families.
