Our Story

Our journey began in 2007 when my husband and I launched Kidtime Daycare from our home in Leesburg, VA. Over the years, we earned a stellar reputation for providing families with exceptional care and academic excellence. In the summer of 2012, our path took a new direction when we stumbled upon the Hamilton Rescue Squad building, which was up for sale.

Upon stepping into the old building, we were immediately struck by its potential to become the next chapter in our story. Despite facing numerous challenges, including zoning, permitting, and navigating local, state, and federal regulations, we were determined to expand Kidtime. With unwavering faith and perseverance, we overcame these obstacles and transformed the old rescue squad building into what is now known as Kidtime Christian Academy.

Through God's grace and strength, we completed this remarkable transformation after 2 1/2 years of hard work and sacrifices. Today, Kidtime Christian Academy stands as a testament to our dedication to providing children with a nurturing and enriching environment where they can learn and grow.

We are grateful for the opportunity to serve our community and look forward to continuing this journey with you and your family.

Dear Families,

I am thrilled to share the story of our journey with you. Kidtime Christian Academy began its mission on August 10, 2015, as a faith-based, state-licensed preschool with just four students. Since then, we have grown into a vibrant community dedicated to providing a nurturing and enriching environment for every child.

With over 35 years of experience in early childhood education, I am proud to lead this academy as a CDA-certified professional. My deep passion for both the Lord and children has been the driving force behind the creation of Kidtime Christian Academy. Our goal is to create a loving, Christ-centered, and nurturing environment where children can grow and thrive.

Throughout my career, I have worked in various private preschools, corporate childcare centers, and Montessori settings, gaining valuable insights and experiences that have shaped our approach at KCA.

At Kidtime Christian Academy, we are committed to helping each child build self-confidence and enrich their learning experience through creative and interactive activities. We believe in providing a solid foundation for young minds to flourish to their fullest potential.

It has been a joy and a blessing to provide an alternative learning foundation for families in Western Loudoun County. My team and I are dedicated to making KCA a special place for your child, where they can unleash their imagination and thrive.

We look forward to partnering with you on this incredible journey of growth and discovery.

Our Philosophy


We believe each child is a unique and special gift from God. Each child learns best about God’s world through hands-on experiences, play, exploration, and developmentally age-appropriate activities provided as avenues for learning in a loving, healthy, and nurtured environment where kids can grow and thrive to their full potential.” Train a child in the way he should go, and when he is old he will not depart from it.” – Proverbs 22:6


We lovingly and compassionately nurture our students, teaching them fundamental early childhood educational skills, while introducing them to God’s unconditional love and His Word! It's an honor to serve families in Loudoun and provide them with great early childhood education and high quality care. We provide an environment that challenges kids to a variety of fun and creative learning experiences that will help them develop a strong foundation for life long success.

Our Beliefs

We believe that every child is a unique and special blessing from God.

We value partnering with families and caregivers to provide a consistent, quality education at both school and home that will enhance your students spiritual, emotional, intellectual, physical and social growth, while building relationships of mutual trust and respect.

We acknowledge the importance of knowing and sharing Jesus Christ; we impart a spirit of excellence in our students so they can confidently fulfill their educational responsibilities and become innovative and productive students, role models and leaders.

We teach students to revere God by respecting themselves and others, and exemplifying quality Christian character that provides a foundation for proper, righteous, day-to-day living.

We help students grow in the wisdom, statute and favor of God and man, through knowing the importance of worship, obedience, prayer, diligence, responsibility, initiative, honesty, respect and authority.

We teach students the Fruits of the Spirit as described in Galatians 5:22-23, which are love, joy, peace, forbearance, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control.

We believe in helping students develop quality life skills and moral behaviors in a nurtured environment that enables them to thrive and reach their full potential.

We believe that a quality, experienced, passionate and committed staff fosters a peaceful atmosphere and a creative learning environment that ensures a high standard of education for all of our children. All rights, activities and privileges are made available to every child, regardless of ethnic origin, race or color.

We teach principles of good manners, positive social and behavioral skills, kindness and courtesy. We invest in every child’s self esteem, character and confidence by providing positive feedback, encouragement, recognition and rewards.
