Celebree School of National Landing is slated to open Spring 2023 and will provide infant and toddler care, and preschool programs. The customized programs will address the physical, social, emotional, and academic needs of children while adhering to Virginia’s early education standards.

Over the past eight months, Amazon has announced several local small businesses that will open their doors next year at HQ2, including Conte’s Bike Shop, District Dogs, HUSTLE, RAKO Coffee, Social Burger, and South Block. As development continues, Amazon now adds to this impressive roster with the addition of Celebree School of National Landing, Good Company Doughnuts & Cafe, Glo30, and Peruvian Brothers – all set to help enrich the growing community. 

Amazon hopes that as it continues to bring more small businesses to the area, HQ2 can be a destination for all the important areas of life, whether that be work, play, family time, or any of the moments in between. 

Owners of Celebree School National Landing, Kate and Brian Mulcahy, are eager to open this location, marking their second Celebree School. Together, the husband-wife team opened their first Celebree School in Tysons Corner, VA in September 2021. Not even one year later, their classrooms are almost full, and they are changing the lives of families in the community.

“We strive every day to make parents and students feel as comfortable as possible, as well as provide an unparalleled experience for our teachers,” said Mulcahy. “Partnering with Amazon will allow us to reach a larger subset of the region and provide more quality early childhood education to more families.”

“The spotlight that Amazon’s presence puts on the community is so valuable, and the new residents it will attract will strengthen the fibers of the community,” added Mulcahy.Amazon’s commitment to excellence and service mirrors our own values, making it an even more exciting venture.”
