Christian Child Development Center Opens in Sterling

Golden Path Academy opened quietly in Sterling in early October. Designed to create a faith-based child development curriculum and provide a higher level of learning environment and child care to serve busy working families.

Ashburn resident Lindsey Kilgannon is the executive director and co-owner of Loudoun’s first stand-alone Christian early childhood academy. She has worked with children for more than 15 years, beginning as a pre-K teacher and then gravitating toward special education and behavior management, working as a family case worker with the Head Start program and support families and children with special needs. She’s led preschool programs the past seven years, most recently serving as a director of largest Christian preschool program in Northern Virginia.

Golden Path Academy Pathways curriculum is based on the best practices that integrate the works of early child development theorists Erick Erickson, Jean Piaget, and Lev Vygotsky. Pathways follows the guidelines for developmentally appropriate practices set forth by National Association for the Education of Young Children, as well as the Virginia alignment project for early learning standards.

The center is located at 21631 Ridgetop Circle. Learn more at
