Infant Primary Care Program

The infant primary care program is intended for our youngest guests. A specific caregiver is assigned to each child and is responsible for most of his or her daily care. A trusting, mutually supportive relationship is established between children and their caregivers. The children’s activities are matched with your child’s level of development. Please note that we encourage parental visits at any time.

Toddler & Two-Year-Old Programs

The two-year-old toddler program is designed to stimulate your child’s development in the areas of language, cognitive learning, and creativity, as well as emotional, social, and physical growth. The weekly lesson plan and daily schedule are developed by the teachers. Children experience language development, creative play, music and movement, story time, art, and other activities recommended for early childhood development.

Sign Language Program

Children love the activities available at Landsdowne II, located in Alexandria, Virginia, including sign language. Focusing on accelerated early childhood development, we teach these activities individually or in small groups.

From the moment babies start communicating, we incorporate a sign language program enabling infants and toddlers as young as six-eight months to communicate before they speak. Infants aged 6-24 months are introduced to basic signing daily during every day routine and continuously throughout the year. Signing accelerates early learning and reduces frustration for children and adults alike. It also promotes a higher IQ by reinforcing memory and creative skills.

Spanish Language

The second most widely spoken language in the United States is Spanish. Being exposed to a second language can be a benefit to your child as he or she grows. Children in our 2 year old program will participate in our Spanish program. Give your child a great start at Northern Virginia Academy.


No matter what your child’s age or interest, we have a program designed for them. Contact us to learn more.
