Children are best equipped to develop analytical skills for current and future learning between the formative ages of 3.5 and 14. That's why Best Brains sets students off on the right foot by offering focused courses in subjects such as math, English, abacus, and general knowledge. Certified teachers help students develop skills in writing, grammar, critical thinking word problems, and basic computational math, using an abacus counting tool to help develop spatial memory.
In 1971, Montessori Country School was started by nine local families. In the past 40 years, the school has moved locations and expanded facilities. While the school has evolved, our mission and focus have remained steadfast: MCS strives to deliver the best preschool and kindergarten experience possible.
Led by former social worker and licensed child and family therapist Laxmi Chauhan, the Montessori-certified staff at Dulles Montessori School strives to fulfill the school's motto to "accept and respect" each child. Trained assistants in each classroom give each child personal attention and help carry out the foundational philosophy of Dr. Maria Montessori, which includes cultivating a child's natural desire to learn, create, and eat paste. The school's programs challenge young kids with a curriculum that incorporates music, math, and language skills, as well as sensorial materials that encourage observation.

Rompy the dog doesn’t just wag his tail at children in Romp n’ Roll, he also leads them in group singing and dancing. Whether in life-sized or puppet form, the indoor playground’s floppy-eared mascot serves as an invaluable teaching aid for instructors in developmental, parent-assisted classes. Nurturing minds and muscles in small groups, teachers lead babies, toddlers, and children up to 5 years old through educational activities based in movement and gymnastics, art, and music, emphasizing the skills necessary to grow up big and strong like their favorite school crossing guard. Each week, classes focus on a chosen theme—such as pirates, zoo animals, or superheroes—which children explore through stories, open playtime, and group activities. Staffers also open the gym’s padded arena, filled with jungle gyms and trampolines, for open play, as well as themed summer and winter camps.
