Schools & Childcare

Schools & Childcare

Education and childcare is important to any growing family. This page provides an excellent starting point for finding the right school and care for you.


Reston is fortunate to be surrounding by many great schools and exceptional child care facilities. The Fairfax County Public Schools website will explain where the schools are located, and which schools fall under what boundary lines. In addition to the public school system, there are also Montessori and other private schools in Reston.


Residents consider the Virginia Department of Social Services the primary and most reliable resource for finding quality licensed child care in Northern Virginia. Please visit their website for more information.

The Reston Child Care Development Council is another resource many Restonians have used for finding local child care facilities. For a complete list of local childcare facilities or for more information, please contact the Reston Child Care Development Council at 703-860-2077.
