Last week, Easter Seals Serving DC|MD|VA welcomed U.S. Rep. Don Beyer for a tour of its City of Falls Church’s based Easter Seals Child Development of Northern Virginia, which serves up to 162 children, ages six weeks to kindergarten, including children with disabilities and special needs and children of Wounded Warriors. Beyer toured the new facility and paused to read for students.
Easter Seals provides vitally important child development services for constituents in Virginia’s 8th District, which Beyer serves. The Easter Seals Child Development Center of Northern Virginia is one of the only centers in the area that accepts children under the age of two with disabilities or special needs. “The first five years of life are essential for a child’s future school success. Our child development program meets the needs of families in the area, including military families, who want to prepare their children for kindergarten in a learning environment focused on the highest standards of health and safety,” said Linda Janulis, Easter Seals Vice President of Children Services.
The Easter Seals Child Development Center of Northern Virginia has served the community for over 40 years. The state-of-the art building, located at 300 Hunton Ave., opened in November 2013 and was made possible through the support and collaboration of The City of Falls Church and Fairfax County.
