Our parent organization, ANNANDALE CHRISTIAN COMMUNITY FOR ACTION (ACCA) — an alliance of 26 churches from Annandale and adjacent areas — was founded in 1967 to meet the early care needs of children from working, low-income families. Its initial focus grew to include transportation for medical appointments, family emergency assistance, Meals on Wheels, furniture, housing repair, scholarships, and a food pantry. Except for the child development center, all other ACCA services are provided by volunteers and free of charge.
In the early 1980s, after the closing of Annandale Elementary School, Fairfax County leased part of the facilities to ACCA, and built an Infant/Toddler facility and a food pantry on the site. Today, ACCA Child Development Center is a full-day, year-round, and comprehensive program, which provides high-quality early education to more than 200 infants, toddlers, and preschoolers. After five decades of uninterrupted service, our program has become one of Northern Virginia's top early child development providers.
