At KinderHaus, we welcome you and your child! The early years are very important for a child’s social and intellectual range of growth. We feel that each child is a special individual possessing unique skills and knowledge. All children have, and are, special gifts. KinderHaus is pleased to have you visit us. KinderHaus cares for children in different programs.
The following is the breakdown at Chevy Chase KinderHaus and
Cleveland Park KinderHaus:

The ages listed above are a general approximation. Please note that children may “graduate” to the next classroom if the Director(s) and/or Teacher(s) feel it would be beneficial and space permits. If your child is moved to the next classroom, fees will be reduced at that time, if applicable.
KinderHaus staff are trained in Early Childhood Education. They plan a daily program that will promote and stimulate growth and development for each child. In order to better understand each child, they need opportunities to talk with you and your child. In the Fall your child’s teachers will meet with all the families in the class. This is a time for the teachers to explain how the classroom “runs” and answer any questions you may have. KinderHaus schedules parent teacher conferences in October and February. Conferences may be scheduled at other times if needed. If you have other concerns, please feel free to contact your child’s teacher(s), the Assistant Director or the Director to discuss our program, any situations in the home, scheduled events, etc, which you feel KinderHaus should be aware of in order to assist your child.
