Our two children have been with Ms. Jackson at Jackson Child Care for over 2 years and by far it has been the best decision we made for our family! She is more than a childcare provider; she is a partner in the upbringing of our children and their development. She is truly a gem! There is reason why she is recognized throughout the state of VA, with many awards and used as an example for programs, such as CACFP.
Ms. Jackson provides a home environment that is warm, comfortable and a nurturing place to play a... Read More
Ms. Jackson is a high quality professional who has been an invaluable partner in our daughter's development. Ms. Jackson runs her program according to all the appropriate state and local requirements as well as designing a curriculum that's informed by industry best practices. She is constantly learning and educating herself to be the best provider she can be.
My daughter is extremely willful and can be quite the handful. We worked with Ms. Jackson on her development and took her feedback into consideration with... Read More
You will not find better childcare in the Fairfax county area. I say that because the environment is like a private academy of elite pre-schoolers! Ms. Jackson is firm and on top of educational aspects in every way. The children are taught manners, independence and the importance of eating healthy. While my son was in her care she provided structure, and assisted with other needs that only someone with her years of expertise could identify. She truly creates memories for families. She is always my go-to when I am recommending a trusted child care provider.
Ms. Jackson runs a wonderful day care which we sent our eldest son to for approximately two years. After bouncing around multiple, sub-par day cares, we found Jackson Day Care and felt comfortable keeping our son there until he was ready for kindergarten. Under Ms. Jackson’s care, our son’s emotional intelligence as well as his auditory, visual, pencil/paper, and gross motor skills progressed rapidly, enabling him to get admitted into a competitive, local private school. Before the pandemic, the daycare would take... Read More
You will not find a more caring atmosphere for your child anywhere! My son spent several years at JCC, and he absolutely loved going there. They were always doing something interesting and fun, and, little did they realize, they were learning a lot, too!! Monica and her staff make sure each child is treated as an individual. She takes the time to figure out how to bring out the best in each child, and help them succeed and grow. I cannot make enough positive comments, other than Monica/JCC is one of the things I miss about living in N. Springfield!! Best. Care. EVER!!
My son was with Ms. Jackson for a number of years, and a higher standard of quality care for your child could not be found anywhere!! We lived in N. Springfield until 2018, and I can honestly tell you that NOBODY is as attentive and attuned to individual children's needs as Ms. Jackson and her staff are. Best. Child. Care. EVER!!
Jackson Child Care is one of the top programs in the area. You will not find what Monica Jackson offers anywhere else. My son started with her when he was 3 years old. Two years later he came out beyond prepared for Kindergarten. She even went out of her way to add extra activities in areas where my son was struggling so he could have extra practice.
The amount of hands on learning, field trips and home cooked meals cannot be matched anywhere else. Not only does her program prepare them for school, it prepares them... Read More

I have been affiliated with Jackson Family Day Care for more than 20 years. Monica Jackson and her team always have done a stellar job. I had the please last summer and this past spring break to have my granddaughter attend her Academy. It was comforting to have her always come one with exciting stories and excited to go back the next day. The programs are always age appropriate and push the children to be more intellectual and creative. Ms. Jackson also incorporate manners into her daily practice which is... Read More
My child has been enrolling at Jackson Child Care since January 2018. Ms. Jackson has been nothing but phenomenal when it comes to early childhood education. She is an expert in this field with many outstanding awards and recognition from the state of Virginia. Being a teacher by trade, I have high expectations when it comes to school curriculum and learning objectives. Jackson Child Care offers an excellent child-focused program that has a positive impact on the child's physical, social and intellectual development.
As an intern at Jackson child care, I can say that we focus and work on the development of the whole child. The daily schedule and activities are intentional with emphasis on advancing children’s cognitive, emotional, language, motor, and social developmental skills. We dig deep by strengthening children’s developmental skills and increase confidence in their capabilities are daily goals. Children acquire and build developmental skills through engagement in fun research-based early learning and guided educational... Read More
Monica is an amazing caregiver and a leader in the field of child care. I have nothing but admiration, love and respect for her. She runs an awesome program at Jackson child care center. The families are blessed to have their children at her program.
I can’t say enough about the wonderful experience my two sons have had at Jackson Child Care. They are grown now and the still talk about the activities and field trips. Monica Jackson puts a lot of thought, time, and love into making it an experience that the children will always remember.
My son started with Monica in February. We have had such a positive experience with Monica over the past several months! Right from the start, Monica impressed us with her efforts to communicate with us. We were nervous about our son starting, since he is younger than the rest of the children. Monica knew this and made sure she touched base with us often/gave us extra information that first week. Since then, the communication has continued. We love her daily email reports - they contain information about what the... Read More
We have been completely delighted with our experiences at Jackson Child Care! Our youngest daughter started here a few months after we relocated to Annandale Virginia from the Midwest. Within a week she went from hesitant and tear-filled drop-offs to running through the door as fast as her little legs can carry her, without a backward glance! Over the months since she's been attending we've seen her language skills and confidence really grow; I'm sure it's in large part due to the experiences she is having at... Read More
My girls were with Jackson Child Care for over 5 years and it was a wonderful experience. They would still be there if we had not moved across the country. Monica became a part of our family and gave the girls experiences most kids don't get to have. Her love and support for the girls and our family is priceless and we are blessed to have her in our lives.
Our youngest son is in his third year with Monica and her staff, and he has grown, learned so much and had fun at the same time. We sought a place where he would be loved, nurtured and could play. All of those things have happened, and he's also been exposed above and beyond to a dynamic preschool curriculum that has included literary skills, problem solving and science through hands-on cooking and gardening activities, and more. We love that Monica teaches the children through experiences that include regular... Read More
Jackson Child Care offers opportunities for life long learning experiences; prepare for school readiness, literacy, ongoing exposure to social settings, self respect with emotional development in mind, self control and accountability to name a few!! Their is no better place for your preschool child to be in the best hands of Monica Jackson and her team!! Thanks Monica for your services to the local community at large! And fantastic advocacy leader for the Fairfax County children!
We used Jackson Child Care for our daughter after school when she attended North Springfield Elementary. Monica offers a safe and welcoming environment for the children and is very reliable and conscientious. She also reinforces the importance of good manners and respect for others. We had to discontinue when our daughter changed schools but would definitely recommend to others!
