About

About Me:
Welcome to Lake Elkhorn Kids Playhouse, my family home daycare in Columbia, MD! I am the owner and main caregiver and I have 6 years of child care experience. I am CPR and first-aid certified and MAT trained, so I can administer medication to the children in my care if needed. I hold an Associate’s Degree and also completed all required certifications to be a licensed child care provider and early childhood educator. I am a mother of 5, so I have a ton of first-hand experience with my own kids! Given a chance to care for your children, I can guarantee you that they will be in safe hands at all times! One of my top priorities is your little one’s health, so I will make sure that they practice the following habits: washing hands before and after meals, after using the bathroom and of course, after playing. I also clean and sanitize all toys in my facility to make sure that kids are free from bacteria and germs.
Program:
My family child care program is open Mondays through Fridays from 6:30 am to 5:00 pm. I can provide full-time and part-time daycare for infants as young as 6 weeks, as well as toddlers through preschoolers up to 5 years old. I also offer before and after school care for school-age children up to 12 years old (my home is close to Cradlerock Elementary School, Stevens Forest Elementary School, Talbott Springs Elementary School). My facility offers a peanut and tree-nut free environment and I serve snacks to all kids in my care (included in the tuition).
Curriculum:
My curriculum offers a lot of creative and learning activities such as meet & greet and circle time. I will engage your little one in different educational activities such as arts, music, drawing, painting, blocks and many more. As part of our daily routine, I will read storybooks to the children. They will also have plenty of outdoor playtime since I have a fenced backyard perfect for riding bikes and my home is close to the community park.
Location:
Lake Elkhorn Kids Playhouse is located off Broken Land Pkwy and Cradlerock Way (near Lake Elkhorn Park access). Your commute to work will be convenient since my daycare has easy access to all major roads: I am just a few minutes away from Columbia Pike (route 29), Patuxent Fwy (route 32) and the I-95. Thanks for taking the time to read my profile, please send an email to schedule a tour. I will look forward to meeting your family! ​

I absolutely adored sending my daughter to this provider. They watched my daughter from the time she was roughly 7-8months old until she was just about 18months. The only reason that we did not continue sending our daughter was because I am a teacher and the school year ended so I stayed home with her and then that summer I got a new job and moved to a different county which required me to find a new daycare closer to my new location.

We absolutely love this daycare! The first time we met these providers, we knew that our baby would be in a caring and nurturing environment. We feel extremely lucky to have them to care for our baby during such a delicate stage in his life. Highly recommended!

We stressed finding a new daycare for our girls, but were so lucky to find this family daycare!! Our girls are excited to go every day, and come home every day happy, tired, and having learned more and more!

Having this provider take care of our son has provided the peace of mind I need as a working mother. She is nurturing, friendly and always looking out for my son's safety. I can't thank her enough for her flexibility and ability to work with my schedule. My son looks forward to spending time with her and is always very happy to see her.

The providers are great with my son. He started a few weeks ago and they immediately took to him and cared for him. As a nervous First time mom they put me at ease. I had a horrible experience with my old daycare and these providers are just fantastic. My son is learning things so quickly and he is always coming back home full and tired from playing and having fun. I highly recommend them.

We have just recently enrolled in this family child care. One of the first things we noticed during our tour is how clean and organized the daycare area and her home in general are kept. They were very friendly and attentive to our son. He seemed comfortable in the environment and with both of them...he was playing and exploring within the first 15 minutes of arrival. We also like that they have a curriculum and planned activities to keep him... more
