Here at Ladybug are closely following what the CDC and the state of Virginia recommends. The health, safety and well being of our children is our priority. We will continue to keep the following procedures in place:

Due to COVID 19 our hours of operation are currently 7am-5:30pm and our classrooms are kept at 12 persons capacity, including the teachers.


Drop off:

  • Children must be dropped off at or before 10am. Those dropped off after this time will not be permitted in the building.

  • We check the temperature of each child upon arrival. Children will be checked an additional three times throughout the day.

  • Parents will not be allowed past the front hallway.

  • Parents must wait outside if there is another parent already in the center.

  • Per CDC recommendations, our staff will all be required to wear masks and will continually sanitize within the center.

Pick up:


  • Pick up times begin at 4:30 and end at 5:30 when we close.


  • Please message us on Brightwheel if you plan to pick up your child earlier than this time slot.


  • Brightwheel updates may also be delayed. Staff must focus on sanitation and social distancing procedures.
