Hi, I am with Town Hall.
We publish a monthly welcome Town Hall Guide that is mailed weekly to all new residents as they move into your community.
Our Welcome Guide is going to feature only one exclusive business inside each category, and I am searching for a Day Care Facility in your area to fill that spot.
I would like to schedule a time when you are expecting me so that I may drop off a sample of our "Welcome Kit" and explain the program in greater detail.
Please message me or for immediate assistance, feel free to call or text me on my cell which is listed below.

Last week we were happy to help a new customer getting ready for the festival in Fairfax. We prepared Brochures, The Retractable Banner and Flyers for our new friends at Children's Center for Language & Culture, Inc. She is amazing to work with so I'm sharing should this be something you are interested in learning more about and also to show what we helped her with :-) Our team is amazing to have turned this around so quickly, so I love showing off what we can do. :-)
Children's Center for Language & Culture, Inc. in Old Town Fairfax City is a Hispanic, woman, and City resident-owned business. As we celebrate Hispanic Heritage Month, I especially appreciate ChiCeLaCu!’s Spanish immersion and bilingual preschool offerings for our youngest students.
**📷 Social Photography Campaign **

While the city continues to practice safe social distancing, we at Fairfax City’s Office of Economic Development want to highlight our city businesses and how they are continuing to keep our Fairfax City communities together through creativity and solidarity.

We’ve asked city businesses to participate in a social distancing photography campaign by sending us a photo of their business and a quick note on what their working on or how their business can be supported by our communities at this time. To submit your photo and message email [email protected].

Students in ChiCeLaCu!’s virtual After School Program, with the help of our very creative Ms. Maureen, put together and performed a puppet adaptation of the play “The Three Little Pigs.” A lot of effort went into this little production where students created their own props and script. ChiCeLaCu! continues to do amazing work, even online!! Stay tuned for more online options this summer….

Our next trip around the world took us to beautiful BULGARIA. Students were captivated by its wonderful customs and traditions, including Martenitsa and Baba Marta, which is celebrated on March 1st. Mr. Tadjer talked about the Bulgarian map and flag, it’s alphabet, location in the world, traditional clothing, sports, and so much more. Did you know that the best yogurt in the world comes from Bulgaria?! Thank you, Mr Tadjer, for your time and this wonderful presentation.

¡Lo pasamos tan bien que seguro regresa el próximo año!


Our trips around the world start once again at ChiCeLaCu! We begin with MEXICO and a fun presentation by Mr. and Mrs. Davis. Every March we invite parents to talk about their countries of origin. Their children love it and so do their friends.

¿Quién rompe la piñata? We learned a lot about Mexico- its flag, food, money, music, but the highlight was definitely the PIÑATA!!! Thank you very much, Mr. and Mrs. Davis, for making this such a fun experience for our preschoolers.

A special poem we share with you on this very sad day. We stand strong with our beloved staff and families from Ukraine. 💙💛

Love Ukraine by Volodymyr Sosiura (1944)

Love your Ukraine, love as you would the sun,
The wind, the grasses and the streams together…
Love her in happy hours, when joys are won,
And love her in her time of stormy weather.

Love her in happy dreams and when awake,
Ukraine in spring’s white cherry-blossom veil.
Her beauty is eternal for your sake ;
Her speech is tender with the nightingale.

As in a garden of fraternal races,
She shines above the ages. Love Ukraine
With all your heart, and with exultant faces
Let all your deeds her majesty maintain.

For us she rides alone on history’s billows,
In the sweet charm of space she rules apart,
For she is in the stars, is in the willows,
And in each pulse-beat of her people’s heart,

In flowers and tiny birds, and lights that shine,
In every epic and in every song,
In a child’s smile, in maidens’ eyes divine,
And in the purple flags above the throng…

Youth ! For her sake give your approving laughter,
Your tears, and all you are until you die…
For other races you’ll not love hereafter
Unless you love Ukraine and hold her high.

Young woman ! As you would her sky of blue,
Love her each moment that your days remain.
Your sweetheart will not keep his love for you,
Unless he knows you also love Ukraine.

Love her in love, in labour, and in fight,
As if she were a song at heaven’s portal…
Love her with all your heart and all your might,
And with her glory we shall be immortal.

Our Story

Located in the City of Fairfax, The Children’s Center for Language & Culture (ChiCeLaCu!) is a language immersion center providing in-person and online classes. Established in 2007, ChiCeLaCu! was the first Spanish Immersion Center in Northern Virginia.

Overview: At ChiCeLaCu! students learn Spanish by fusing the arts with traditional classroom learning. Not only do students learn to speak, read and write in Spanish, they also gain an appreciation for the various Latin American cultures and the many other cultures represented in our Center.

Description: ChiCeLaCu! offers Spanish for preschoolers, Spanish After School, Spanish Saturday School and tutoring. We also bring our services to public and private schools in the area. As of 2020, ChiCeLaCu! is also offering a variety of Spanish online courses.

We follow a fun, highly-effective, long-term, curriculum, which is regularly reviewed and updated to ensure the highest quality of services In. Classroom sizes for in-person as well as online are kept small to allow teachers to provide a more personal and individualized teaching approach. Our teachers are all native speakers and trained educators with at least a Bachelor’s Degree in education.

Learning another language takes time and dedication. The benefits are limitless! Our goal is for our students to become proficient in Spanish in a period of about 4 years. To this end, a long term commitment is needed from students and their families.
