About

CURRENT OPENINGS: For children 2 and up only! Next infant opening is anticipated in September 2021!
Welcome to Hickory Ridge Little Playhouse, our bilingual Spanish daycare and preschool in Columbia, MD. My child care facility is in the Hickory Ridge neighborhood, right off Hickory Ridge Rd near Howard County General Hospital and Howard Community College. Your daily commute to work will be convenient since I'm very close to Columbia Pike (US-29) and Patuxent Fwy (route 32).
About Us
I’m a professional caregiver with 5 years of early childhood education experience and a Bachelor's Degree in Business Administration. I run my home daycare with my assistant who has a decade of child care experience, and we’re both moms! We understand your concerns when it comes to finding a safe and quality learning environment for your child. In addition to our child care credentials, we’re CPR & First-aid certified.
Curriculum
Hickory Ridge Little Playhouse is a bilingual Spanish child care program, and we use the Mother Goose Early Learning Curriculum. In the morning, we read books with the children and during circle time, we teach them singing, dancing, and the Spanish language. In the afternoon, we have a class time where we use the Mother Goose curriculum to teach our young students.
Program
We are open all throughout the year from 7:30 AM to 5:30 PM, Mondays to Fridays. We provide full-time and part-time care for infants, toddlers, and preschoolers between the age of 6 weeks and 7 years old, including children with special needs. Children attending full-time are served with lunch and snacks (already included in the tuition). Thanks for reading our profile, please call or send us an email to schedule a visit. We would love to meet your family in person :)

This provider is fantastic with our daughter. She is loving and does wonderful art and academic work with her. The kids sing, dance, and play daily. This provider allows for exercise and outdoor fun, but also is well planned and organized for calendar, math games, reading, and learning inside. This provider is very quick to communicate and lets me know how my daughter is doing through the day. This provider is a wonderful caretaker and I’m... more

Our daughter has been with this provider for only 2 weeks and she loves it. This facility is clean, organized and safe. She has taken our daughter's learning to the next level and is doing a fantastic job. I highly recommend this daycare.

We love these providers! They love and care for our girls like family. We chose this daycare for many reasons - the small, intimate family feel; the curriculum and Spanish language exposure; time outside; family style meals; and the overall sense of love and caring. They make a big deal out of birthdays so that all children feel special and these providers takes lots of pictures throughout the day so you don't miss a thing. I highly recommend... more

This provider loved our daughter as if she was her own. She is moving onto kindergarten now, but we miss her terribly!

This provider is amazing! Super sweet with tremendous attention to detail. I love how my son is still engaged in school activities and proactive the whole day. He comes home so happy with plenty of stories to share. Definitely a great choice for my baby boy!

We were referred to this daycare by my sister. My young niece was initially enrolled in a large daycare center where she cried every day. My sister switched her to this home based child care and she LOVED it. She happily referred to the providers and her friends and actively looked forward to attending each day. When we were looking for care for our three month old daughter (and first child), we were thrilled that this facility had availability.... more
