COTW is a vibrant learning center with children and teachers representing 31 countries: U.S.A., Canada, Egypt, China, Belgium, Morocco, Russia, Turkey, Libya, Lebanon, Syria, Iraq, Saudi Arabia, Yemen, China, Algeria, Pakistan, Jordan, Afghanistan, Kuwait, Somalia, Palestine, Sudan, Tunisia, Kazakhstan, Ethiopia, Bolivia, Nigeria, Tanzania, Indonesia, and Azerbaijan.


We strive to be the provider of choice for parents seeking a child-centered, multicultural, and bilingual early learning environment for their children. Our goal is to develop fluency in two languages as well as support our children’s bicultural heritage, thereby preparing them to become true citizens of the world.

We offer an affordable child care program that focuses on enriching the minds of our children while providing high-quality care.

Our Mission

We inspire the development of Islamic moral values in our children and respect for the principles of moderation, tolerance, and inclusion.

Children are immersed in a bilingual environment where the fundamentals
of the target languages (English/Arabic or English/French) are
acquired through play and age-appropriate activities. We believe
in building strong partnerships with parents to raise children
to be responsible, respectful, honest and hardworking
young individuals.

*Families of other faiths may choose to opt-out
of religious instruction.

What Parents are Saying

I am so glad that I was referred to COTW by a good friend. My 4 year old has been attending the school for over a year now and she absolutely love it. They follow a well organized schedule and have lots of developmentally appropriate activities for toddlers. The teachers are very caring and well-trained and everyone here treats the kids and parents like a family. Miss Hakima is a very caring and loving lady and is very attentive and accommodating to each child under her care. Overall, I'm very pleased with the service and my daughter is learning quickly and is excited to go everyday!!!

Our oldest daughter has been attending the preschool program here for almost a year, and we absolutely love it. It was a bit of a transition from the Montessori curriculum, but the teachers were super patient and facilitated her adjustment to learning the alphabet and other basics to prep her for kindergarten. The student body and teachers are diverse and from a lot of different countries which is great and gives kids exposure to a dynamic group of friends. They do a great job of mixing classroom instruction with outdoor time, withperiodic field trips. Our daughter is always excited to come home and tell us the latest song or rhyme that she learned. They do Arabic in the mornings, and even my Arabic is getting better from practicing the vocabulary and other lessons with her. All the parents we have met so far are very nice ( which was important to us) as it shows by the children at the school- all very sweet and kind with good manners, and serves as a good and serves as a good example for her which was one of my main concerns were keeping her in a private preschool program, since they pick up so much from their peers at this age. We started here in the summertime so I thought this was an appropriate time to add a review because they have great programs during the summer months including weekly field trips… Highly recommend it! Particularly compared to other schools in the area, (and we have attended others including the Boyd school and Fairfax Montessori) they are on par with making sure your child is in a safe loving and fun environment while you are at work, and doing a great job of balancing playtime and learning.

My husband and I love this school! We are so happy with how much our daughters are learning. Such a great staff and a lovely environment. I highly recommend!

HOME AWAY FROM HOME! My 2 kids joined COTW almost 3 years ago and we absolutely love it. COTW has exceeded our expectations in every way. The staff is personable and caring and the teachers are amazing! I have seen the difference in how an experienced staff can implement the curriculum in a fun, yet meaningful and focused manner. I have total confidence that while they are there they are learning how to be a well-rounded child, both socially and academically, and a good child of the world. If you are looking for a school that will offer your child individual attention, small classes and a broad range of learning opportunities look no further-- you''ve found it!

My son has been going to the COTW for quite some time. He wasn’t good at speaking at the beginning but he has learned a lot. The teachers are very helpful and willing to work with the children on 1 to 1 to help them catch up with other students. The owner Ms. Hakima is also a wonderful and understanding person who will always be available to meet and help if you have any concerns. I also registered my daughter who doesn’t read or write in Arabic and speaks it poorly during the summer of this year and I see that she is progressing in Arabic.

Excellent place- am so thankful that i found Children of the World School, i had visit different schools and daycares, but as soon as we walked in, we felt welcome. Most of the schools your child have to be fully potty train, And i was having the hardest time with that, but they are helping me train my son, which is hard to find in a school that are willing to do that. They are very affordable, cleaned, helpful, caring and Super with the kids. Highly recommend to visit the school.
