About Me
Welcome to ​Bradmoor Educational Playhouse, my licensed home daycare and preschool in Bethesda, MD. I’m the owner and main caregiver and I have 13 years of child care and early education experience. I hold a Bachelor's Degree in Communication and I’m CPR & First-aid certified. I am an experienced teacher, and my passion is working with children. I just love being immersed in their world! A dream came true when operating my family child care program, a place where I create a nurturing, creative, and joyful environment for children. Before opening my own home-based daycare, I was a teacher at a multilingual international elementary school in California. Prior to working there, I was also a teacher in Iran after earning a degree in communication. I am very passionate about art and early childhood education, and I am determined to expand my knowledge in this field.
Philosophy
I truly believe in creating an environment conducive to curiosity, creativity, and altruism. I think that a simple but organized environment, in which natural materials play a pivotal role, best serves my educational purpose and is productive for learning and growing. Most of my teaching materials are Montessori-based.
Curriculum
I have taken advantage of elements of the Waldorf teaching philosophy to encourage and nurture creativity and imagination in children. I also employ elements of the Reggio Emilia approach to develop a curriculum that is reflective of my mindfulness of the children's different personalities. Having these differences in mind, I strive to instill in children a profound respect and understanding for the world they live in. In addition to English, I speak Farsi, Persian and Turkish and upon your request, I can expose your little one to these foreign languages (however, please note that my daycare is not a bilingual program).
Program
My family child care program is open year-round from 7:30 am to 5:30 pm, Monday through Friday. I provide full-time care for infants, toddlers, and preschoolers between the age of 6 weeks and 5 years old. I run a peanut and tree-nut free environment and can serve lunch (with additional fee) to your child.
Location
Bradmoor Educational Playhouse is in the Bradmoor neighborhood of Bethesda, MD. I’m right off Greentree Rd, near Bradley Park, within walking distance from Bradley Hills Elementary School (also close to Wyngate Elementary School and Bethesda Elementary School). Your commute to work will be convenient since I have easy access to Old Georgetown Rd (route 187), Bradley Blvd (route 191) and the Capital Beltway (I-495). Please call or send an email to book a tour, I would love to meet your family :)

This provider is a treasure. The time of COVID-19, this provider never failed to keep families informed about what was going on. We were thrilled to be able to return to the daycare when it reopened. My infant daughter never smiles or laughs as much as she does when she sees this provider every morning. I am confident that my daughter is safe, happy, and appropriately stimulated in this provider's care. Plus, this provider has a fantastic... more

This provider is very kind to my daughter. She's attentive to my kid and accommodating to her need. Her facility is clean and has many new and interesting toys. There are various activities throughout the day. I recommend this daycare to other families.

This provider has been amazing! She is very patient and loving. My son who used to not let anyone other than my husband and I hold him now reaches to go to her. She is flexible and understanding of each individual's needs. They have a lot of creative play and there is an emphasis on using natural items and playing outdoors. We have been very happy with the care of our one year old who has been there a few months now.

This provider takes such wonderful care of my little boy. Her house is well set up for day care with all the toys and books a kid could want and all the safety features a parent wants to see. My kid comes home every day happy and content and excited for the next day.

I know this provider both personally and professionally. She took care of my child during afterschool hours at Golestan school. She also watched my child at her house as her son and mine played together. My child was late in being comfortable sleeping with us (his parents) in the room. I was quite surprised that he asked to sleep over at this provider's house the second time ever that he was there. This provider is responsible, loving,... more

This provider is a very nurturing and attentive caregiver. She genuinely cares about the well-being and development of the children she works with and, as a parent, it was very comforting to leave my child with this provider. I would 100% recommend this provider!
