Hear What Parents Have To Say...
My daughter has been going to The T.E.A. Center for 9 months and loves her teachers and classmates. The staff is excellent. They’re responsive and diligent in protecting the students and staff. The classes and activities are fantastic! They teach Spanish and French! My daughter surprises me every day with everything she has absorbed at school. I'm happy to have her at The T.E.A. Center, and soon my 2-year-old will join. Highly recommend this program for little ones!

The T.E.A. Center has been a savior in hosting a Kindergarten classroom with in-person learning 5 days a week! I can’t say enough about the precautions and guidelines they successfully implemented to keep our children safe while offering a rare opportunity to learn in person this year! We are happy with the school and plan to keep our child in the before, after-school, and summer camp program!

We love The T.E.A. Center, and our preschooler adores her teachers, friends, and daily activities. Our daughter is thriving based on T.E.A. Center’s multi-faceted focus on traditional school subjects, cultural exposures, and confidence-building activities. We also appreciate the kind yet firm manner in which they handle our child. We are very grateful for T.E.A. Center’s phenomenal instruction, encouragement, and guidance as our daughter navigates this phase of her life!

My son started at The T.E.A. Center about 7 months ago. He doesn’t like change and had difficulty adjusting, but the staff at The T.E.A. Center were incredibly supportive during the transition. They have a fantastic program for kids that is both fun and educational. The T.E.A. Center exposes kids to various activities, like art, reading, yoga, music, different languages, and so much more! We also did the summer camp for elementary-age kids here, which was equally fantastic!

The T.E.A. Center is wonderful. The teachers are caring, friendly, and extremely patient. The school itself is immaculate, bright, and inviting. My son was super excited to go here every day. The price is very fair considering the outstanding education and loving environment your child receives. We've been very, very pleased with being a part of The T.E.A. Center family and are very much looking forward to using their after-school program.

Mayosha and her staff at The T.E.A. Center are amazing, and the education they provide their students is second to none. This is not just childcare; it's a unique learning environment where kids get to experiment with many different interests and learn to be leaders at a young age. It’s hard to find this type of care anywhere else. I love The T.E.A. Center!

The T.E.A. Center team is amazing. The teachers take great care of my child, who had never been to a school before. The entire team was very helpful in helping him integrate with all the children. He is thrilled to go to school and enjoys it very much!!!

Our 4-year-old girl loves The T.E.A. Center for learning and interacting with her teachers and friends! They provide various learning programs, and I love their focus on foreign languages.

We’re having a fantastic experience at The T.E.A. Center. The curriculum is rich and varied, and the teachers are wonderful and caring. Our son has grown so much over the past year and has made many great friends.

The T.E.A. Center is the best preschool and before/after care center in the McLean area. They implement important safety measures to protect our kids in a nurturing environment. I would highly recommend this school!

We’ve been attending preschool and summer camp and couldn’t be happier with the love, curriculum, and extracurricular activities The T.E.A. Center provides. Parents receive real-time updates and photos throughout the day, and the facility is safe and clean. My daughter has grown exponentially!
