Committed to Great Childcare


With more than 40 years of service to our community, we are one of the most experienced childcare centers in the DC Metro area.

Top Curriculum

We use an award-winning evidence-driven curriculum that makes classroom play a transformative learning experience.


Many of our teachers have been employed with BCDC for more than 10 years, and several others have been with us for more than 25-30 years.


Our long-standing relationships with local families are the most important part of our work.
