In the summer of 2020, Our Neighborhood is moving to 1015 East Market Street in Downtown Charlottesville!
We are excited that this move will allow us to serve more children, across a wider range of ages. If you're looking for infant and toddler care, we recommend touring our current program and getting on the wait list as soon as possible. If you are looking for a play-based preschool program and are hoping to join our new Learning Studio for children ages 3-8, we will be hosting open houses in the spring of 2020. Email us with any questions.
