Piedmont Child Care Center is an independent, non-profit school in Upperville, VA. Since 1984, we have been dedicated to providing quality early childhood care and education for children ages 6 weeks through 12 years.
We believe that every child deserves access to a high quality early childhood program. With this in mind, Piedmont offers a tuition assistance program thorough the John P. Levis Scholarship Fund, which is largely funded by donations from our community. This program has helped hundreds of local families have access to a safe, dependable, nurturing, educational program they could not otherwise afford. In 2019 alone, we awarded over $35,000 in scholarships to local families. There have been some years when almost 50% of our enrolled families have benefited from some assistance. Since the COVID pandemic struck, the Levis Fund has taken a financial hit. As a result, we have had to temporarily pause giving out these much-needed scholarships. With your help, we can get back to helping many working families afford child care. 100% of your donation will go to the Levis Scholarship Fund.
We believe that early childhood is the most important period of human development, and we are committed to providing a safe, fun, educational place for children to spend their days. Piedmont children learn academics, but they also learn so much more- how to share, how to respect others, how to play together. They learn responsibility- whether that is keeping track of a hat and coat, or learning to clean up a spilled cup of milk. They learn how to work together and be a part of a larger community. Our children learn both in the classroom and outdoors-- they can often be found exploring our wooded nature trails, or planting and harvesting in our Roots & Shoots Garden. Our school age classroom is currently supporting children while they participate in hybrid and online learning with the public school system during the COVID pandemic.
