From the Owner
Hello, I am Nicole Brown, Chief Executive Officer and Owner of Nikki's Christian Daycare Center, Incorporated. First, I would like to thank you for considering our center as a place to provide educational support and care for your child when you cannot be there. As a parent, I understand the concerns, questions, and even anxiety accompanying the decision before you. Within this introductory letter, I will endeavor to provide you with enough information to make a quality decision as you consider Nikki's Christian Daycare Center for your family's early educational needs. Nikki's Christian Daycare Center began in the Woodbridge area in February 1993 as a licensed in-home center caring for five children. Seventeen years later, we are a child day center licensed by Virginia to provide developmental care for more than 150 children. In May 2014, we opened our 2nd location in Woodbridge.We are just as we started, Christ-centered, smoke-free child care, and learning center. We maintain a CPR and 1st aid certified staff present during daycare hours.
All members of the NCDC team must pass a criminal background check, and child development services check before being employed. I am proud of the team that stands in unity to meet the educational, developmental, and care needs of our children and their parents. We do not see our ministry as a babysitting service; therefore, even with infants, we seek ways and opportunities to nurture and encourage their development. We utilize a highly acclaimed early language development system in their daily plan. I believe in education not just for our children but for the staff as well. I ensure each team member meets the Virginia state education and training standards annually. Beyond that, I have incentive programs for those on staff actively pursuing their CDA or other childhood-related degree programs. Our center offers a variety of programs geared to meet the needs of families with children ages six weeks to 12 years old. Again, I appreciate your interest in Nikki's Christian Daycare center. If a staff member can assist you further, please get in touch with us. I invite you to visit our daycare and learning center. May God bless and guide you in your search for the right center to meet your family's growing needs.

Philosophy & Core Values
At Nikki’s Christian Learning Center, we believe the best learning atmosphere is acceptance, encouragement, mutual respect, fairness, consistency, and enjoyment – learning should be fun! We know a predictable, organized environment with caring adults, clear expectations, and appropriate consequences support the whole child. Since early childhood development is a process that is continually changing and expanding, we offer our students structured and unstructured opportunities to learn, grow, explore, and discover.
Children are presented with age-appropriate activities to foster their physical, social, emotional, cognitive, and spiritual growth and development. We train our teachers to view the outdoor play environment as an extension of the classroom filled with endless opportunities to lead, absorbing young minds to new discoveries. The mission of our center is not to “babysit” your children, but we see ourselves as your partner in early childhood education, helping you lay a solid foundation. We consider the family an integral part of our program and have instituted a daily communication system to facilitate our partnership. We believe in our hearts that as we empower young minds, we strengthen families. Therefore, we welcome the opportunity to earn your trust and deliver you the best service in the childcare industry.
Philosophy and Religious Affiliation
Nikki’s Christian Daycare & Learning Center is a Christian center whose very existence is founded on the Holy Bible, the Word of God. We believe Jesus Christ is the Son of God born of a virgin. He was crucified on a cross for the sins of man. Jesus Christ was buried on the third
day, rose again, and is seated on the right hand of God the Father, interceding on behalf of all believers. While it is not a requirement for all employees and students to believe in the Lord Jesus Christ, we do, have daily times of prayer, Bible study, and weekly chapel for our students. We also begin each staff meeting with prayer. Our standards are such as to bring glory to God in every area. The music, curriculum, books, movies, computer programs, and other teaching tools promote the quality of life instructed in the Word of God. This center is nondenominational.
