About

Established in 1998, Lifetime of Adventure Family Daycare has consistently offered top-quality care to area children of all ages. Lifetime of Adventure Family Daycare, the vision of Denise Tyrell-Petersen, was created to offer working parents a child care option they could rely on and feel comfortable with. Back in 1997, Mrs. Petersen and her husband investigated various daycare programs to meet their own childcare needs and realized the options range from good to very poor. Surely there was a need for quality, reliable care from a loving, well educated and responsible individual. Having experienced first hand the difficulty (and stress!) associated with finding the right child care for their children, Mrs. Petersen, decided to take matters into her own hands. Mrs. Petersen embarked on the home daycare licensing process regulated through Prince Georges County Office of Children, and Lifetime of Adventure Family Daycare was formed. Since then, many, many children have become a part of our daycare family. My programs begin by nurturing infants during their first year of rapid growth and development and continue through providing stimulating and innovative experiences that challenge preschool and school age children. Lifetime of Adventure Family Daycare have set the Maryland standard for excellence in all our educational programs. Lifetime of Adventure have studied and developed our learning curriculum. I apply the best possible practices in early education into everyday practices in your child’s classroom. Lifetime specializes in “school readiness” activities that prepare children for success in Kindergarten and beyond. My programs are designed to provide children with many opportunities for learning that never imitate the formal drills of higher education. Instead, daily and weekly lesson plans focus on a child’s natural interests and curiosity. As a well trained childcare professional I take my cues from the interests of the children in my care. Research shows that all children learn and benefit from developmentally appropriate practices. Lifetime Daycare follow these practices throughout my programs for all ages so that children experience success early and often. Lifetime Daycare uses a combination of various nationally recognized Curriculum. Based on research of child development over the past 75 years, it shows that all children benefit from developmentally appropriate practices.

As a first time mom in a new city I was completely overwhelmed with having to trust someone that I didn't know with my child's safety and development. Finding Denise and Lifetime of Adventure Family Daycare was truly an answered prayer. Denise and her family are becoming a part of our extended family. I trust her insight, guidance and teaching methods for my son. My child has grown up so fast and is learning so quickly and Denise has shared... more

Denise Petersen was a great asset to me and my daughter. She was able to teach and have my daughter ahead in certain learning capabilities as well as motor skills. My daughter is now going to the 2nd grade, and still talks about how much fun she had there and how great Ms. Denise was to her.

I have been a part of the Lifetime Family for almost 10 years. Yes even though my 3 children are school age now, we are still family. Lifetime provided me and my children with all the perks of a daycare, the exposure and practice of a school and all the comforts of home. The infant care was phenomenal. As a working mom, you are looking for a smooth and easy process, when it comes to childcare. My babies came home clean, freshly bathed... more
