About Coretta Rodriquez


"Having three children attend such a wonderful daycare is really a plus. You often hear of horror stories of things that could go wrong, but never a problem once dealing with In Coretta’s Care. They have really met all the needs concerning my children in all their stages of development, birth through school age."

– The Parker family

"Childcare is a very demanding field, and finding the perfect fit for you and your family can often be an issue. I have been a faithful parent of In Coretta’s Care for almost 6 years now and each member of this staff has proven to be one of a kind. Ms. Coretta and her staff have a passion and love for all children which stand above many other providers that I have come in contact with.

From their flexible hours, cleanliness, and food being served even down to the decorations on the wall…everything is just family oriented and just right for every need anyone could have. While at daycare your child is not just looked after for a certain amount of time; they are cared even after they leave the site—they stay on someone’s mind.

If you are looking for a GREAT place to send your child or children, look no more…here they will learn and be cared for!"

– The Lewis family

"It is my pleasure to write about Coretta’s Care daycare. My two sons who are now 11 and 3½ began going to Coretta’s Care at the end of 2012. This was a hard process for me. I was new to the state of Virginia, a full-time student and full-time health care worker. Finding a child care provider to fulfill my needs was a challenge. But not at In Coretta’s Care. Their schedule meets the needs of the modern-day worker.

The staff is always pleasant. They go above and beyond to not only meet my children's needs, but mine as well. I’ve been extremely pleased with the learning skills my 3-year-old has acquired since being at Coretta’s Care. I’m very impressed with the many activities and different things they have going for my eldest son that keeps his mind stimulated.

I have finished school and now work as a nurse; I’ve also added an addition to my family. It was no question as to where my newest son would receive child care from. I am pleased to say on his first day, Coretta’s Care staff made me feel as comfortable as when I brought my older two."
