Merrifield Child Development Academy has been operating since 1991. We are conveniently located in Falls Church near the Dunn Loring Metro stop. Merrifield Child Development Academy (MCDA) provides educational and social skills essential for higher learning. We serve a diverse and vibrant community of families and work together in these partnerships to improve student outcomes. MCDA provides stimulating and rewarding learning experiences for a diverse group of children ranging from ages 16 months – 10 years old.
Our mission is to provide high levels of support to enable teachers to focus on the needs of individual students and families. We strive to develop a child’s social, emotional, and physical development by focusing on the intellectual growth, early literacy and language skills, and creativity by using a variety of hands-on strategies, resources and techniques.
The curricula we utilize create a strong educational foundation to best prepare each student for future success. We link parents to their child’s classroom experiences through ongoing communications and suggestions for ways to continue the learning at home. Our talented and caring teachers collaborate with parents to nurture children into respectful, confident and joyful learners.
